It is currently the busy season for visa applications. If you are planning to travel to the UK, you should allow enough time for your visa application to be processed.
We aim to process 90% of non-settlement visa applications within 15 working days and 95% of settlement applications within 12 weeks. To ensure you receive your visa decision in good time, please make your visa application as early as possible. You can submit your visa application up to 3 months before you travel.
