I got hired by a known university in the UK as a faculty member. My Tier-2 (general) working visa application includes the certificate of sponsorship (CoS) given by the university.

However after 8 weeks now, I still didn't get the visa (and no other decision was made in my case). I wonder if this is even reasonable. The visa center promises "service standards" of at most 12 weeks to process all applications. Should I believe this? Am I going to get the visa in 12 weeks?

More details:

Type of Visa: Tier 2 (general); (a work visa). A faculty position at a recognized and well-known university in the UK.
Place of visa application submission: Tel Aviv

19 August 2014: online visa application, Tier 2 (general)
26 August 2014: Biometric appointment, submit all required documents
29 August 2014: Got a message from the relevant Visa center (Istanbul) of acceptance of application.
9 September 2014: Status: "awaiting assessment of visa" (I asked the UK immigration help desk for this)
5 October 2014: Status: "In progress"
10 October 2014: Status: "deferred"
