Day 105 from the USA, doesn't seem like we are getting processed any faster.

If i were you i would have better settled my life in america than uk. UK seems very annoying with immigration system. By far the worst ever in my experience. Japan is alot better takes a week for spouse visa but due to personal circumstances I applied for UK spouse coz husband is there in LONDON. but oh uh waiting game is making me sick and tired and frustrated pul my hair; what not.

Hey guys, just for the info- my husband mailed them physical letter stating that all my original documents are still at sheffield and that the email which they sent me on 26sep is panicking and confusing us. Therefore, he sent all the proof of DHL track delivery as well as VFS confirmation proof by ROYAL MAIL yesterday (fast track) which has reached Sheffield already this morning.
I hope they *#*% make a decision or die and rot on that desk ! I am so frustrated i just want a decision yes or no! If no i want ro leave my husband coz UK IS ANNOYING AS F ! I iust hate my life right now !

That’s a good news. Here in Philippines there’s no update yet. I’m 47 business days now and 29 weeks pregnant. I hope will hear my visa application soon

We are 64 days non priority. I assume it can only be good news. Apparently they are having to phone applicants if the processing time has went over the specified travelling time. I'm sure you won't have to wait to much longer. My case carried alot of documents to consider for the financial side of things

I am non priority too. I just want to know the result so that I could prepare if I will give birth here in Philippines or not. I sent them an email. And the reply is still on process. I sent email to uk Embassy here in Manila too. But no reply from them.

We also sent an email with no reply and a phone call which didn't tell us very much. Your application sounds more urgent than ours to. They seem to be getting through them now so just keep faith.
