Default Christmas Holidays

Hi all

This is a totally self absorbed, selfish question

How does the Christmas Holidays effect the waiting time? Does CIC close down for the whole two weeks or do they close down on Christmas Eve (Wednesday) and go back on the Monday for three days before the New Year's Day Holiday. Assuming the work 9-5 Mon-Fri

I'm thinking that we would have to wipe out the two weeks.

Yes, I know its totally self indulgent, at least I admit it LOL

They don't close down. Now thats not to say some staff won't take an extended break i.e. vacation which they can legally take.
Offices will be closed Thursday, Friday and back to work on Mon 29th then closed on 1 Jan and back to work on 2nd.

You can expect a bit of a delay, but not a full two weeks. The same as anywhere else - CIC will be closed for the stat holidays (25th, 26th, 1st), so that's fewer days there. I will point out that there is also a slow-down in January as well - a load of work permit streams either open or re-open in January, so there is often an influx of applications, so more work generally, but the slow-down isn't usually that huge. The trusty spreadsheet will give you an idea of how holidays and January has affected things in the past.
