To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, if she will make it her policy for UKVI to give applicants a target date for when their visa applications will be processed.

Answer (Brandon Lewis)

UKVI’s published timescale for processing standard visa applications is 12 weeks (60 working days) for straightforward settlement applications, and three weeks (15 working days) for straightforward non-settlement applications.

If an application is complex and expected to take longer than the standard processing timescale, UKVI will write to the customer within the standard processing time and explain what will happen next.
