Hi all,
I'm also getting really frustrated about the wait, were at working day 19 and still haven't heard anything.
I'm wondering if its worth calling to check the status. What is the helpline number please and were they any use?

Many thanks and lots of luck.

No they are of no use. They will just tell you have to wait.

Got the"a decision has been made" email this morning!!! In total was a 27 business day wait which was wayyyy longer then I thought it would be! Phone calls and emails don't work just have to hang in there knowing you have absolutely no control from the minute you submit your documents. FedEx says it will be here 10:30a on Friday! Hoping more of you get the email this week and praying my passport has a shiny new visa in it

Hang in there everyone x

I am on the same timeline. Sheffield received my package on Wed, June 18, and I received email from them on Sat, June 21 acknowledging receipt of my document.

I havent heard anything subsequently.

Don't waste your money they only get updates twice a week and have no way of knowing what Sheffield are doing unfortunately is just a waiting game

Hi Danielle86,

I'm new to this forum and I noticed your husband received his initial email from Sheffield the same day I did, Saturday June 21st. I am still waiting and getting more frustrated by the minute. I hope its slightly comforting knowing that someone else with the same timeline hasn't heard anything either!

Best of luck!

Hi,

Thanks for getting involved with this, it's great to hear where other people are in the process. It's like a support group!

Congratulations on getting news today shannonh26!! Do share with us once you know.

I have a further question, I got my pre paid envelope from royal mail. It's international priority so will go back to the US with his passport but I'm paranoid as it's not FedEx etc. But FedEx is just a courier right? Really hope royal mail is acceptable.

Thanks!

I think it should be acceptable or they would have asked you for something else by now.

On the day of my initial email I also received an email from Sheffield saying I needed to provided an international courier account number (i.e FedEx) because I had provided the wrong kind of return envelope. I had to create an account online and they will bill me through FedEx once my documents are sent back to me. I would assume since you didn't get anything saying royal mail wasn't acceptable you should be fine.
