Question 20 weeks delay..TIER 2 Visa

Hi All,
It's been 20 weeks since I applied for TIER 2 visa for UK on 21/06/2018. I call them every 4 weeks and still "waiting for decision".
Has anyone faced same issue?
What is the current decision making time scale for Tier 2 visa with full sponsorship certificate?
Thank you.

Hi my friend,
I applied from Jordan, but I don't get it how it matters on the visa decision time....

There’s no data on Tier 2 processing times from Amman but 20 weeks is a long wait for a Tier 2. Is there anything about your circumstances that could be causing the delay?

I had been to UK at several occasions, no overstay or issues during my stay...except my love for that beautiful country and respect for the wonderful people.
What circumstances would delay my visa decision till the end of the world?

Is your employer still on the approved sponsors list?

That is a good point. I am not sure if they are still on the approved sponsors list. I should check with them. They asked me a week ago about the status of the application. But if currently they are not in the list, decision should have been an easy 'No'...

Thanks. They are Tier 2 (A-rating) ; Tier 2 General.
My doubt is just in case the Brexit thing??? Are they currently issuing tier 2 visa?

Nothing to do with Brexit. It may just be that they’ve hit the cap for Tier 2 applications.

Thanks for the information. Then what will be my fate? Next year or Deny? But no answer is not understandable. I wish I knew why so that I could help.

We can speculate but it’ll be just that. Has your employer not chased it up on your behalf?
