Hi there
This is what the London office processing times are:
Temporary entry processing times

Hope this helps! Are you applying for work visas as the job starts soon? Just being nosey and wondering why you haven't applied for PR

Yeh my wife starts her job on the 10th of may so timescales are tight. We are going to go for PR when we are there, thought the working visa was the quickest way to begin with and she got a job offer pretty quick.

My 3 year took about 2 weeks, but I was offered a 5 year. Couldn't get it as my UK passport expires in 3
