Hi my wife is currently applying from colombia for a spouse visa. She had her biometrics taken on 3 May 2017 in Bogota. We understand we must wait 60 working days. We are currently on day 45. However, she had not received any emails since. We thought she would get an email when a file handler has taken conduct ect. Is this normal not to hear anything since the appointment?

Thanks.

Hi I am hopeful this thread will work.

I reckon my wife is on day 58 today having received her confirmation email from Sheffield on 4 May. Please lord let's hear by Friday.

I start work on 3 August; I have no one to look after my 4 yo son. We left Bangkok mid May so I could get him into primary school and get settled befor my wife arrives. Any one here on day 58?

Having read other threads I reckon my wife is not day 58 at all. More like day 49 if counting from the Sheffield email receipt date.

This is killing me. My son misses his mum so so much.
