Timescales

 

General

We cannot guarantee how long the Home Office will take to process your application. We will usually be able to submit your application within 1-3 weeks after instruction, however, this could also depend on the need to obtain further documents. However, if your case is urgent we will discuss with you in our initial consultation of the practicalities in meeting deadlines and will agree an action plan.

Visa processing

The timescales in immigration and visa matters are mostly dependent on the Home Office and their processing time. Guidance and current processing times for the Home Office can be found at this link for applications made inside the UK and outside the UK:

Issuance of Biometric Residence Permits are usually received within 7 workings of the decision being made on an application.

 

Asylum

Once an asylum application has been made a decision is usually received within 6 months. However, this may be more depending on the Home Office's internal timescales. More details can be found at this link:
