Question Post your UK visa timeline here! TIMELINES ONLY-NO QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS

Hello all!

I can't seem to find a thread where only UK visa-seekers can post and update their visa processing timeline so I thought it may be useful to start one to share info.

Please list the following:

Type of visa applied for:
Date application submitted (online or in person):
Date biometrics taken:
Date documentation was received by UK Border Agency office:
Office location processing your visa:
Projected timeline given:

Thanks!

Default Tier 1 visa from Chicago

I was in the Uk on a student visa and came back to the US to apply for my Tier-1.

I sent out my application on October 8th and I have no idea what to expect for processing times for the Chicago consulate.

Does anyone have any idea how long the Chicago consulate takes to process Tier-1 visas? I heard that its usually 3 - 15 days but I dont know anyone who's had a visa processed through there. I have a ticket back to London for the 20th but I don't think that's going to happen.

Any ideas??

Also, do they notify you through email or regular mail?

Thanks!
