When can i expect a decision
It is very difficult to predict how long it will take to receive a decision, this will depend very much on the type of application for example if you are an overstayer or illegal entrant. As a rough indication straightforward applications are between 1-4 months, and for an in-country appeal between 6-8 months. Timelines are currently longer following delays/backlogs due to Covid-19.
