Default TWP - request for more info questions

Hi

We had a request for further info for our TWP application, this was six weeks (and a day) after submission of the application. We have 60 days to submit the documents but hope to sumbit within 30 days. I'm trying to work out timings and wondered if anyone has experience on how much this sort of delay cost them in terms of time and the length of time the CIC then took to process the application once the requested information had been received. Just trying to work out if all our carefully planned timings with selling the house and moving out there have been cocked up now and if I'm going to have to find a short term rental here in the UK if successful.

Also, the really paranoid question - did anyone go on to get a successful twp application after they sent off the requested further information, the few people I've seen on here that have had to send further documentation haven't necessarily had good news after.

Ours was last year, but CIC London requested other stuff and it took them a further 4 weeks minimum for us to hear anything after that. It could've even been 6 weeks. We had to fill out a low skill form and supply police certificates.

I suppose it depends on the type of 'further information'!!

I know what you mean. We were really panicking when waiting because we'd already sold the house and moved out when they asked for more info!!

We made it here at the end of Aug 08 after a painful 8 months since job offer. I'm sure everything will be fine in the end, take deep breaths and drink wine!

Hi,

We got asked for further information 3 weeks into our application. We sent the required info off within a day or two and we got our visa's back 2 days before the 6 week period.

Hi we also got asked for further information (stuff we had already submitted!) we sent it off within the week but I also needed my medical at that point so it was a further 5 weeks until we got our permit letters but nevertheless they came

Thanks everyone, it is going to take us a few weeks to get the stuff together they have requested, I was just worried that we were going to then go to the back of the queue so to speak because that would really throw all the timings out.

Really appreciate all the feedback, I don't recall ever being this stressed in my life, it is quite some process we have to go through isn't it?
