Hi All,

Just wondered if anyone knows much about the recent changes happening to the visa process. My husband is waiting for his practical assessment for plumbing and the date was originally Feb but has now moved to June. I wondered if anyone knew why this had changed and how long after that does it take to get the applicaiton lodged ? I think everything is a little unknown at present due to the changes but is anyone aware of any real timeframe from now on, ie how long is the wait… Continue

Hi Deborah,
Greetings from India.

How are you doing?

Hi Debbie,

I know it can be very stressful as it is such a long and involved process. It does require a lot of patience these days due to current processing times of up to 3 years. I always advise my clients to go on with their lives here and try not to think too much about this for the time being. As always I will keep you updated every step of the way.

Talk soon.

Kind regards

I am not a visa agent but I help people relocate and work close with a number of UK based migration agents. I would strongly recommend you use a migration agent for the visa. The rules change all the time and they will stop you submitting a visa application that could be rejected.

Hi Deborah - I would certainly recommend using an agent as there are lots of areas where things could go wrong and unless you have a lot of spare time in order to do lots of research - you could end up regretting not having an expert on board. The processing time depends on what visa you applying for - we are applying for a 176 and husbands profession is on the MODL list which is currently priority 4 - at the moment the DIAC have been instructed to prioritise 1,2 3 priorities only. we applied July 08 - had medicals, x-rays and police checks in Sept - Dec 08 and have now been told that our visa may not been granted before June 2010! This means £990 will have been wasted on all our medicals etc, which will not be taken into consideration - it is very disheartening and if we were doing it ourselves without an agent - i think I would have thrown in the towel by now - although we have paid nearly £4000 in total so far - I still would recommend an agent - in hindsight however I would have looked further into the agents that offer "no visa - no fee" although there may be hidden terms to that and may not be as clear as it seems. Anyway with a bit of luck, you are in priorities 1-3 and will not encounter the problems we have and processing may be a lot easier and quicker for you. Good Luck
