Hi domeonga,Good afternoon,
I'm a little worried and just need some reassurance. Here is my timeline to get an idea of my situation:
Applying from USA for Fiance Visa
Online application submitted: August 28th
Biometrics appointment: September 8th
(I received an email on September 15th stating:
Your online application has been received at the UK Decision Making Centre. Your application is currently being prepared for consideration by an Entry Clearance Officer.
If you have made a Settlement application (except for applications lodged in USA and Canada): you must ensure that your UK sponsor has sent all relevant supporting documentation to the UK Decision Making Centre in Sheffield. The documents should be arranged in this order: application form and relevant Appendix* (See below); English language evidence; relationship documents; maintenance documents; accommodation documents. If documents are not received a decision will be taken on the basis on the information that has been provided."
Documents submitted to Sheffield: September 16th
Documents arrived in Sheffield: September 21st
I haven't received an email yet confirming receipt of the documents but have confirmed with UPS that it was delivered. I even went as far as to call up the office and inquire, and was told to just wait? Not sure if I am just being a bit impatient as I've heard others say they received an email saying their documents were received...can someone please advise?
Having recently applied for a spouse visa and supporting docs to sheffield, I can also reassure you that we only received the initial email (identical to what you received) after the biometrics.
I have just received my bundle of supporting docs back (15 days after they received them-my return postage was next day delivery) with a letter from UKVI saying a copy has been taken and no further action is required. If they need anything further they will be in touch. They returned everything, both my originals and photocopied pile!
