What visa did you apply for?

How much have you paid already for the Health Surcharge?

That's right as spouse visa is for 33 months and carries £600 health surcharge.

Thanks Joppa,

Does this email mean that an ECO is reviewing my application?

Your application gets "prepared" by someone else well before it gets to an ECO.

Hi,

Visa Spouse settlement non-priority (Spain)
Biometrics taken: May 25th, 2015

my husband sent and email asking about our application and here's the reply:

From: [email protected]
Date: 5 June 2015 06:46:31 BST
To:xxxxxxx
Subject: ContactID#123456#

Dear xxxx xxxx,

Thank you for contacting the UK Visas and Immigration international enquiry
service.

We understand that you would like to know about the current status of your
visa application. I have tracked the status (GWF123456789 and date of birth
xx/xx/xxxx) and found that a decision on your application has been delayed
whilst further enquiries are being conducted. Your visa application centre
or the entry clearance officer will contact you once a decision has been
made or, if necessary, during the consideration of your application.

Though we try our best to complete the visa application process in 15
working days, each application is subject to an individual assessment and
processing times may vary, hence applicants are requested to be patient and
wait for the processing to be completed. You can check how long you'll have
to wait for a decision on your visa application in your country (if you
applied from outside the UK) by entering your details at the following
link: https://www.gov.uk/visa-processing-times. Please note that the actual
processing times may vary depending on a range of factors.

(maybe the delay is for the health surcharge that they asked us to pay a few days ago)

Could be. I doubt the application even makes it to an ECO until all fees have been paid.

How did you pay the extra surcharge

Visa Spouse/ Settlement

I am Moroccan but I live in Spain

My husband has already paid £500 and now he paid £100 plus.


I have been sent a mail asking to pay 100 GBP through a link that will be sent to me. But I am yet to receive any link. I have been given 7 days time. How do I pay the extra 100 pounds. The website in which I login sets the payment to made at 600 GBP and there is no way I can pay only that 100. I have tried to pay through the site but am unable to do so. Please help.

Thanks

Sunita
