Default Processing Times?

I have a link here for Processing Times.
BUT Uruguay is missing.

Does anyone know of another source?

For Uruguay, they go through through Bogota, Columbia now, the results on the web processing pages states

Most applications are processed within 60 days.

Thanks.

I knew about the change to Bogota, not sure if that is a good change or bad. So I guess I have to choose Buenos Aires from the list.

Visa applicants in Uruguay should continue to submit their applications at the Visa Application Centre (VAC) operated by our commercial partner VFS in Buenos Aires.

50% within 30 days.

Doesn't mention priority processing. Maybe they don't offer it. Would this appear as an option once we start the application online?


ah yes Bogota says 79% within 30 days.

I believe these are just for when you are already in the UK.
There was another posting today who used the 1st service and got the visa within 2.5 hours - again settled in the UK already.
6000 GBP for them to come to your house

Maybe this is applicable to our application?

UK Visa Information - Colombia - User Pay Services

Settlement priority visa

Available in Bogotá, Medellín, and Cali

Price: USD 468 for each settlement priority visa application. This fee is in addition to the visa application fee.

This service allows settlement visa applicants to pay to have their visa application placed at the front of the queue once received by the UK Visas and Immigration Decision Making Centre (EMC), to commence processing ahead of other visa applications. Your dependents can also apply for this service at the same time as you but they will also have to pay an additional Settlement Priority service fee.

Important note: This service does not imply or guarantee in any way that applicants using the Settlement Priority service will be successful in their visa application. All visa applicants must meet the requirements of the UK immigration rules.

hmmm I followed the link to pay for premium service just to see.
No drop down for Uruguay as country of residence. Maybe this is only for Colombians
