Good Afternoon,

I trust that you are well.

Thank you for your email. Please be informed that the application is
currently still being assessed. My apologies for the issues you've
had with getting more information on the status of your application.
Teleperformance is working on their tracking system and should have
something in place in due course. In the meantime, please be aware
that our current processing times for settlement applications is 12
weeks. This information is listed on the website. Your application
is well within the delivery standard and may take another week or two
to complete the process.
Please feel free to contact me should you
have any additional queries.



18 working days so far so holding thumbs for another week or two

Anyone else applying in SA?

Many thanks. Looks similar to the emails I have received. They don't give away much.

Did you get them from Teleperformance or the visa center?

I thought the email was very encouraging

Got email from ECO in Petoria. However my email didn't mention how long it would still take. Just that they are still within their 90 days.

Dear Hertsfem

Just received an email to say our application has been resolved. We can collect our documents tomorrow at 10am. Nothing about it being approved. So excited but not sure if I should be??

Oh wow! how exciting

I'm not surprised as I know the processing times are quicker if you reside in SA rather than Zim.

All the best! I'll be holding thumbs
