Hi All,

My husband is the primary applicant and within a month of lodging for Visa, we received a mail from the CO on 5th Oct - we had to provide additional documents being police clearance and a functional certificate from my side. We have uploaded both documents. How much time does it typically take a for a response from the CO on the final response on Visa?

There's nothing specifically mentioned about that stage in the books. Its just a cumulative time for visa process.

We're in the same boat. In a few days my application will be 3 months old. But honestly I don't expect any news before the 5th month.

True. Given the current timelines, looks like it will take 5 months before the final okay. Let's stay in touch! All the best :)

Consider before posting:
  • Do not post the same thing in multiple places.
  • No personal contact and/or non-English phrase is allowed.
  • Always post in a relevant thread or open a new one.
  • Better to use the reactions in a post to congratulate/thank.
