OMG now I am worried.

We've just received the email that a decision has been made and documents are being returned!!

I am soooo nervous now as we expected it to be another month at least.
I am sure we provided so much information but so worried that they made a decision so fast that it was just a refusal.

No indications/signs on the email are there?

Country applying from: Uruguay
Type of visa applied for: Settlement Visa (non Priority)

Date biometrics taken: 21st April 2015
Date documentation was received by UK Border Agency office: 24 April2015
Office location processing your visa: Bogota
Projected timeline given: 10 weeks

Email received stating it has been assigned to an agent: 19th May 2015
Email received stating a decision has been made: 22 May 2015


Thinking overtime did we provide enough evidence of our relationship? I didn't put the paternal leave on the employment letter from HR but everything else was there.
Pay all ok. P60, bank statements all signed by bank, etc etc etc
photos spanning back 15 years!!
Horrible waiting game now.

There is no way to tell what the decision was until the documents are returned to you. The swiftness of the decision has no bearing on what decision was made. I hope it was successful!

Have positive thoughts and answer will be YES.

No point beating yourself up at this stage. Everything comes to them who wait!!

Hi, as others have said you just have to wait and see. But my husband's visa was processed by the Bogota hub in a week so I don't think the timing has much to do with it.
Good luck!

My partner is applying for a YMS visa to the uk and today received an email saying "a decision has been made and the documents are to be returned to the vac."

I also have no idea weather it's going to be a yes or no, but like everyone says... Wait and see!!! So nervous!! :(

The waybill tracking number for it's return shipping is not found yet on the fedex site. Bit strange.
Maybe they used a new one or haven't sent it off yet.

We had a few problems with FedEx. So although the visa was processed quickly the delivery took another week. FedEx were really unhelpful but then one day it just turned up at my husband's house and luckily his sister was there to sign for it. I know it's really hard not to worry but it will arrive soon!

Thanks.

My wife called the Fedex office in Uruguay. They don't work at the weekends so maybe the same in Colombia where it's coming from. :(
Maybe it won't be touched until Monday then.

Fingers crossed! I wish you'll have your visa! I see how much worries you have, I'm also worrying and waiting my visa.

Thank you. So very tense right now and all kinds of thoughts going through my head.
No fedex tracking has appeared yet. Maybe on Monday. Some countries only work from Monday-Friday.

Good luck with yours.
