Why is it taking so long for my whv decision?

Recommended Posts

I applied over a month ago. 2 weeks ago I was asked to provide declarations as I have a criminal record (Nothing serious 2 public order offences). I've still yet to get a decision and am really worried that I will be rejected. Does anyone have any information that might help? Thanks guys.

I'm in a similar situation. Had my WHV application in since July. Have an 11 year old criminal record, so was asked to provide a UK police certificate, which showed I had a conviction, but was considered 'stepped down' by the UK police. Because it showed as 'stepped down' and not the actual conviction. I had to get another SAR Request from my local police to confirm my conviction. That was sent along with a personal statement/account of what happened on the 13th September. My immigration account has said "assessment in progress" for a month now. My entire life is on hold at the moment waiting for this decision and I'm getting pretty frustrated!

I am also in the same situation. Submitted application on 6th January. Received a response on 17th January asking for more information and a statement which I did. It has been 9 days since I sent this and it is still just saying currently being assessed!

How long did you have to wait in toatal? Unfortunately I have made the mistake of already booking my flights and supposed to be leaving on 5th February in 9 days!

Judging by what I have seen 9 days is being VERY optimistic.Some people have waited several .months.

Mine took 12 weeks. Had numerous convictions and was getting worried but came through in the end. Just got to be patient. Good luck
