From what I can remember they work up until christmas eve and after boxing day they are open again so the don't close for long, I think things will be slower.

 

Tania

 

The office may be open, but there always seems to be a lot of people taking their holiday around Christmas and New Years, so it will slow processing if a significant portion of the staff are away.

Well we had our medicals today. I must say Dr Smith and staff at Manchester were brilliant,really made you feel at ease. He said we were healthy enough but my OH is diabetic so he says it automatically gets referred so we will just have to wait and see. Fingers crossed, now for the wait (again!!!) :eek:

Hello there

Our documents say the same but our agent advised it was because for whatever reason one of the pages from our TRA hadn't uploaded with the applcation but they were going to sort this for us so nothing for us to do, if you have an agent you could always ask if this is the same case for you or ask why, they should know.

No bother.

I also forgot to mention that they asked us for payslips and P60's for the periods back from when we first applied for the visa, so back from 2008-2010. Luckily we still had them. :mad:

I think they should warn you when you first apply so you can make a mental note to keep hold of these documents for a few years :goofy:

Haha only last week I was saying how I wasn't bothered if it takes a while to get a case officer after all we were looking at 12-18 months when we applied blah blah blah. Now I'm looking at the front page and its difficult not to get carried away with thoughts of a CO, medicals , police checks and that golden ticket :wink:

 

Hopefully if they process us cat 4 people quickly they can move onto some of those cat 5 folk who have been waiting forever.

 

I feel a CO is close.... :yes:


Looking to move on 175 visa. Me, DH, DS (9) and DS (2)
