Hello everyone,

Anyone here whose application has been put on hold? This is the only chatty thread I seem to have found. I've read the thread about "pause", but it seems to be dead.
Applied from Ukraine for a spouse visa on 3rd of April (date of biometrics), recieved an "on hold" email on the 26th of June. All I seem to be doing now is following multiple forums.
I got nothing to complain about, really, apart from the fact that the enquiry service are absolutely useless. They know nothing. My husband rang them on the 30th of June (my application had been put on hold at that point) and they said application status was "awaiting a decision" and not a word about the hold.
I'm also following a russian forum and it seems that Sheffield are working weekends now. So this is good news for everyone here waiting

Hello everyone ,the online tracker shows my hubby's app as DECIDED today .Timeline below
Online App 16 May 2017(Non Priority)
Docs sent to Sheffield 16 May 2017
Biometrics done in Ghana 17 May
Received email from Sheffield on the 16 th of June asking for a prepaid envelope but I had already sent one with the docs
I sent an email for status on the 22nd of July and received the usual case being considered and awaiting a decision email .
I did not receive any case not straightforward or on hold
Online tracker did not work until today it showed decided
It's been exactly 60 working days
I am very anxious to know what the decision is .
Fingers crossed

I am the sponsor but did not receive any call from Sheffield ,my employer did not receive any call
Sheffield did not request additional info
Case decided exactly 60 working days (non priority)
Is that worrying ? It looks extremely straightforward .
Case decided but we don't know the decision yet .
Has someone got an idea?

I think it means they were satisfied with your case and the documents you submitted, hence no need to verify or request for additional info.
You have every reason to celebrate as your case seems good.

Hi all,

I am a Canadian who on July 7th applied to be with my husband in England. This was our second application as last year we were refused for not showing efficient evidence of meeting financial requirements. We have re submitted an application that satisfies all requirements, and are now wondering when we will hear back.

I understand that there are major delays, and am wondering if there are any Canadians who were notified that their applications were sent to New York instead of Sheffield ( as our first one was, and also my tier 5 before that). I am a teacher and start work in my new classroom in September and am hoping that by some miracle the visas processed in New York may be faster?

I would be grateful to know of any groups for Canadians specifically, or if anyone could answer my questions here.

Wishing everyone the best as we are separated from family and loved ones.
