Visa status
 
Hey,

we sent all information for our E2 Visa Application via email last week and the status still says ‘please send documents’ how long do I leave it till I ring them and check they received it 🤷🏼‍♀️

Took about 10 days for my status to be updated, the case last updated field did change after this time and the overall status only changed to issued once the embassy had completed all their actions after 14 days

Calling the embassy will not get you any further information as the call Centre you call can only repeat what you see on the status website (this applies to the UK London embassy)

Hi all,

Ours was filed on Tuesday gone. I believe they say 45 days to process? Has anyone recently received an invitation for interview and if so how many calendar days you waited from the day of filing?

thanks

hey we filed ours on the 19th July and still waiting to hear anything. Very frustrating but it is what it is. Let’s keep in touch because it sounds like we are in the same boat. X

The last 3 were 27 days to 32 days..Good luck guys, hope you hear soon!! let us know for future applications. The info also is that there was good and early availability for appointments.
One got the invitation on 8th Aug and got an appointment on 23rd Aug.
Though we know things can change in a heainbeat
it appears optimistic at the moment.

can I ask what your status said before you heard back. Ours just says ‘Send Documents’ which obviously we have already emailed. We are worried we have missed something.

if you have not heard back by 12-14 days and that is still the status. I would email them..as they either haven't got it or cant open it...or the heading doesn't contain enough info etc etc....
they wont open zipped files..!!!
they respond quickky.by email.. I am aware of several people where it wasn't sent exactly how they wanted it and have had to start all over again.

Thanks all, the processing times seem pretty quick at the moment then. Hopefully it stays the same. Thanks for the info all.

Our status still says send documents but it’s only been 4 days. We have had a specialist immigration attorney complete it all so hopefully we have no glitches.

I will keep everyone updated with progress.
