Received 2 emails on the Sep 4, 2017. One saying that ours was a tricky application. The 2nd stating that we hadn't provided evidence that I (born in the UK) was a British Citizen even though we'd provided my passport details and marriage certificate with place of birth. We immediately scanned a copy of my passport and Birth certificate to the email provided.

This was 2 weeks ago and we've heard nothing

14 Sept, Day 44: 4th call to check if they have received our escalate form. Yes they did.
18 Sept, Day 46: 5th call to check status with our escalate reference number, they say we should receive something before our 60th working day.
20 Sept, Day 48: Received VFS SMS message that our passport is back to Hong Kong visa centre.

Good luck to everyone sincerely, you deserve to be with you loved one SOON!
