My husband was refused his visa and we sent his appeal off on 23rd March and it was received in Leicester on 4th April . Does anybody have any idea on how long the next decision will take?

Thanks

It takes long. I've been waiting since December.

waiting game.

december? did they stick to their original decision with you? is it in the court process? I'm just wondering because I'm in the same appeal boat.
well i applied for a PSW once i got my masters degree from LMU, this was in october 2011
the balance in my bank account fell below £800 for one day by a £100 (some where in august 2011) and that was the basis of the refusal. so i appealed to the tier1 tribunal to reconsider the application and that discretion should have been used in my case in december 2011. i got a reply from the tier1 tribunal saying that they have received the appeal and shall reply regarding the decision- this was in january 2012. now i am waiting and waiting. i thought that i should call and inquire but a friends of mine advised against it, as some one they knew tried to call and inquire and the visa was refused as the person on the phone was vindictive. :ranger:

so i presume there is an indefinite wait for the reply.
the amount of stress is unbelievable.
i secured a full time job as soon as i graduated. now the employers are asking for my new visa to keep me employed.

i personally think the home office are trying to do this so that no employer employes any one without a visa and play the waiting game. if i have enough money to wait for them to reply without a source of income i can stay and wait; else if i run out of finances i have the option of withdrawing my appeal and leaving the country. this is their way to wage war on immigration apparently.:(

i know a friend who was in a similar position in 2008 he had to wait for a year before he got a reply and instead of a psw, the home office gave him a student visa which had a expiry date 6 months before the stamping date. really weird:confused: . so he sent it back and it took another 6 months for the home office to correct their error.

i recommend you wait and see..
if any one else has advise on this matter please do contribute so it can help me and jessika and hannah.

many thanks.

Still waiting its been quite long.
The appeal has been lodged and I have got no reply yet.
I was wondering if I could travel to India and wait for the outcome. As I already have my passport.
If the outcome is in my favour I can courier the passport over for the visa and have it courtiers back to india.
As living in london is digging deep into my pocket now.

Check the UKBA site pages for your country, but ordinarily appeals can take a very long time to consider, six months to a year. I think the advice on the UKBA site is to not contact the UKBA until six months have passed.
