Have moved you over to the UK section of the forum. I take it you're talking about getting a British visa (i.e. a visa to go to the UK) and I think the folks here will have more information for you.
Cheers,
Bev

You'll know if you got the visa when you receive your passport back. You didn't send Appendix 2 which is needed to process the application. Once they have Appendix 2 then your application will be put in the queue for processing.

You could possibly scan and email Appendix 2 as a reply to the email sent to you, they may accept it. But you definitely won't get the visa without supplying the required documents (and Appendix 2 is absolutely required for a spouse visa).

No, you did not get the visa. It doesn't mean you were rejected, it sounds like they were informing you your application is incomplete. You need to send them a filled out appendix 2 ASAP, then you're application will go back in the queue and you will await a decision being made.

My Visa is beeing passed around?

The email system is not completely reliable. Spouse visas are processed in Sheffield so it seems likely that you were sent this email in error.

Nyclon,


I realized they also gave me the old GWF number that i got a refund for....



I called ukvi to confrim they werent processing one that was already refunded.

They had to " escalate it ".

What else can I do? I also emailed my MP?

Shes been on to my case. Should I disregard the New york email?

Yes. Just wait for the outcome, when you get your passport and documents back.

So i ended up getting an email late at night that the old GWF is not valid because they looked it up and my current appicaiton is processing ( which is good). They Never said it could still be in new york or sheffield. And why i got that email in the first place.

The whole email a bit of a joke!


They are taking it as a tech error because its still a bit in the air for them. They will escalate.. to make sure they arent using the old application in someway

New York still processes a small number of settlement cases, but usually only for those who have made a special application through an agent to NYC.

Will they end up buying their own?

Should i still track my package with the UPS TRacking code i bought?

Sheffield Documents being Sent to Home Consulate/UKVI?

I was reading another post about someone saying that the processing times for different cities of their countries and that they might be sending it to their UKVI of their country.

I got an email from [email protected] saying mine is being prepared and assesed and received by UKVI NY?

not just for ME but for ALL OTHER applicants, are visas being backlogged to their home country? or does it mean any thing concerning in my application

It appears that, in order to relieve pressure on Sheffield, some North American settlement applications are being transferred to NY consulate general for processing. No announcement as such but it's not unknown for Home Office to transfer processing without notice.
