Hi Friends,

Has anyone waiting for settlement visa since Dec 2016 or Jan 2017 onwards ?

I have applied Settlement visa for my Wife on 14-Dec-2016 but still now no response from home office. When I called up UKVI they said my application is not straight forward.

As per the UKVI the SLA is 24 weeks for settlement visas. But the fact is it's already 28 weeks(135 working days) completed. Never seen such lengthy process. It has been more than 6 months and no result.:eek::mad::rolleyes:

Type of Visa : Settlement (Spouse Visa)
Applicant Status : Indian Citizen
Sponsor Status : British Citizen
Application Submit Date : 14/DEC/2016
Biometrics enrolled at VFS Chennai, India: 14/Dec/2016
Supporting documents sent to Sheffield on : 03/Jan/2017
Sponsor contacted by UKVI (if applicable): 22/Feb/2017
Received mail from UKVI stating Case not straight forward : 03/Mar/2017
Application Status on 27th July 2017 : Awaiting Decision.

Anybody in similar situation.
Had anyone approached solicitor/lawyer in UK?
Had anyone approached sheffield homeoffice directly.
can you guys please update me your timelines who are waiting more than 5 months?

Best Regards
