Hi guys,

I applied for EEA FP on the 1st of August and still waiting. I got "not straightforward email" on 17th of August.

Today I got news from a friend on a fb group that she went to VFS to collect her passport and it's a yes. Good for her but I'm wondering how Sheffield works now. She applied on 6th of September, received "not straightforward email" on 22nd and got her EEA FP today - 29th of September.
I have another friend who applied on 19th of June and hasn't got anything yet.

Note: Three of us applied from same VFS centre in Vietnam.

My question is: What's going on here? Anybody knows why Sheffield works like that? Why application in September was processed while tons of application from June, July, August, even before that are still on hold? Please tell me. I'm so confused and frustrated.

Some people speculate that the "not straightforward" email is just a cover for the fact that they are overwhelmed with visa applications and cannot cope with the workload, so people should expect a delay.

Visa applications are not necessarily "first come, first served".
