Default Settlement visa delay

Hi,
The application and biometrics was done on 19/06/2017
Type- settlement to join husband who is a British citizen
Applied as priority and all documents submitted . Received a response providing a GWF number. No news since then and it is now 54 working days since biometrics. UK visas say 100 percent are processed within 60 days. Anyone else in a similar situation??

Yep, lots are - from what I've read there are huge delays at the moment and the 60 days processing is no longer applicable.

But The Welcome Inn is really just a place to say hi, so pop over to our family visas section in the Moving Back to the UK forum (http://britishexpats.com/forum/citiz...-visas-uk-196/), you'll find a few threads there about the spouse visa delays.

Good luck.

Has anyone applied for a settlement visa from Cochin, India? It is now day 54 and the contact centre in the UK has escalated it 3 times. They told me that this is a time for foreign students awaiting visas to join UK universities, hence the delay.
Had anyone else waiting heard something similar??
