Statement on UK Visa Applications in Pakistan (07/06/2009) 461


The British High Commission yesterday issued a statement about the UK visa application process, including the current processing times, and a warning about the activities of unscrupulous agents.

“We decided to make this announcement because we are aware that unscrupulous agents are exploiting some applicants and giving them misleading visa information. These agents are taking money to arrange appointments at the visa application centres and encouraging applicants to submit fraudulent applications. It is important that our customers know that there is no charge for appointments and fraudulent applications will be refused and mean longer processing times for everyone” said Director of Visa Services, Peter Chaplin.

“We have taken a number of measures to improve the service to customers and prevent abuse of the visa system.”

“All applicants must obtain an appointment to submit their visa applications. They do this by telephoning Gerry’s on 0900 10411 or 8865 from a mobile phone. Gerry’s have taken on more staff to respond to the increased number of calls and requests for appointments.”

“We are seeing more fraudulent visa applications. As a result, genuine applicants wait longer for their visas, as visa officers are required to carry out extensive anti-fraud checks. We would ask applicants not to listen to agents who say that they can guarantee them a visa and that it is easy to do so using forged documents. Agents have no power to guarantee visas. We will detect false documents and, through the biometrics process, we will detect all false identities. This kind of abuse of the visa process will result in the visa application being refused and the applicant risking a ban on travel to the UK for the next 10 years.”

“We would like to remind customers that visa application forms are free of charge and available from the Gerry’s website: www.ukvacpk.com. It is important that these application forms are completed fully.”

“Currently, customers need to allow the following number of weeks for end to end processing: approximately 4 weeks if the application is made at Mirpur Visa Application Centre (VAC), 5 weeks at the Islamabad VAC and 6 weeks at Lahore and Karachi VACs. The processing times are available and regularly updated on Gerry’s website, www.ukvacpk.com”

“We welcome genuine visitors to the UK and are working hard to make the waiting times shorter. We would ask our customers to make their visa applications in very good time before they intend to travel and not to take up the services of unscrupulous agents”

  • Javid

    Hi everyone,

    let me come with a new concern, the appellants from afghanistan are facing a big problem with the government of pakistan, due to this visa delays, ex: the PK embassy in afghanistan give you only stay for 22 days, and the passport gets a long time to return back from the embassy, while returning back to afghanistan the police ask for a lot of money in the border and sometimes refuses to give us exit, in fact my brother’s wife was given the visa in 20 days by the BHC islamabad, but she got call from gerry’s after two months to collect her passport, i hope this problem will be considered in the issuance of visa for afghan citizens, the stay usually is given to them 22 days and the visa should be issued in 19 or 20 days, then the problem will be solved

  • Abid

    I just want to appeal to British High Commission and Mr Alan Johnson Home Sectary UK that there are some other type as well, such as settlement visa and allowed appeal cases etc.
    We are victim of these delays as well. Our appeals have been allowed by Asylum and Immigration Tribunal UK. Many people are waiting for so many months for a call and some are waiting for their passport back. I am victim of this process as well I have re submitted my passport and it was 8 months ago. There is a worse condition too. I have been waiting for more then 8 months without a reply. It is indefensible for the British High Commission to take so long just to stamp a visa. And more worrisome is that there is no time frame for such of cases. If we call Gerry’s they say time frame is INDEFINITE which is totally unfair. This inordinate delay made me maid
    It is good to learn that the British High Commission has a mind to clear the backlog. I am sure the authorities in British High Commission will take a compassionate view of all visa cases.

  • ATIF

    AOA,

    Here is one more update regarding delay in processing visa applications at Abu Dhabi and BHC.

    The British High Commission in Islamabad has cleared 4000 UK visa appeals cases in the last five weeks, emplying additional temporary staff in Islamabad and Abu Dhabi to clear backlogs and get visa processing operating smoothly.

    British Home Office Minister Phil Woolas gave this information in response to a question raised by Lord Nazir Ahmed regarding UK Visa processing times in Islamabad and Abu Dhabi, and Woolas expressed his satisfaction at the good progress.

    The Minister said historically there have been high volumes of appeals in settlement and family visitor categories in Islamabad (about 4,000 a month) which have posed challenges.

    Woolas also talked of the tough checks introduced by the British Government around the world for anyone applying for a UK Visa.

    Thanks khan for the advice..i will do this on urgent basis…And one thing Gerry’s Authorities told me they will clear all backlog before EID

  • KHAN

    @khalil

    no bro my tb certificate will expire on 22nd dec… though they didn’t ask for my acceptance letter but my consultant is saying that ask ur uni to send a visa support letter for next session and send it to “visa.abudhabi@fco.gov.uk”, as many cases have already been released after sending new visa support letter… i have requested my uni 2 send me visa support letter for next session but they didn’t reply yet.. 🙁

    @all

    it is my advice to get your visa support letter from ur institutions on urgent basis and send it to the address mentioned above… m also doing the same… best wishes 4 every1…

  • ATIF

    AOA,

    I re-submited my TB test n work permit on 11 th Sep, 2009 and its my fresh case. But as the result of 2 months silence from there side and keep sending them emails they replied that

    ‘ Please be advised that all non-settlement applications are being assessed in British Embassy Abu-Dhabi and settlement applications are being handled at UK HUB London.

    Under the current procedure, Passports are kept by BHC Islamabad for as long as the application is sent to one of the above mentioned UK Visa Operation Centres. After the visa application has been concluded from Abu Dhabi or UK HUB, it still has to be in a queue for further process at BHC Islamabad before it is returned to the applicant through Gerry’s office.

    Due to heavy flow of visa applications we have some back log that is why applicants are requested to check their case status on visa application centre’s website at http://www.ukvacpk.com

    InshaAllah, I think this information would ease little bit to all all brothers and sisters waiting problems that whats story behind this delay by BHC this time.

    I need you all’s special dua for me and all other brothers and sisters. take good care all of u.

    • ADNAN

      Asalaam o Alekum To All,

      keep praying for each other”s

    Thank you for your e-mail. This is to inform you that your visa application is still under process with ongoing checks. We are unable to give you an exact time frame. Application cannot be concluded until all checks are completed. Please wait to be contacted through Gerry’s in due course.

    I have talked to the Gerry’s manager today. She told me the reality that there are almost 15000 tier 4 student applications and 9000 Apeal cases which are still in a backlog….with no processing time frame.

    She also told me one other important thing people who had applied for the withdrawl of their apllications are still waiting from the last 2 months with no passport…

  • Abid Khan

    Dear All visa Applicants
    Its important to know that there some fraud ppl sitting outside Gerry’s int. Islamabad, and though
    they normally only provide services for application filling, but they are involved in a very pathetic and disgraceful business too.
    They tell ppl that they can expedite ur case, and will return ur pp in 10 or 15 working days.
    Its all bull shit. they charge too much for this fraud service as all they do is to ask someone from embassy (internal source ) abt individual status of case, and they know the the time roughly that when is the possbile date of decision.
    These days there are atleast four ECMs instead of One ( previously) and all pending cases will be decided more or less in Nov. so pls stay away from them and dont trust them.

    Regards

  • jawad khan

    Dear my friendz.
    I know about the visa situation in pakistan, and the process time.really its weird.its taking so much time, and now they are transferring embassy back to pakistan which is good but what about the applications.so they are gnna start again our previous applications process in pakistan.now i dnt understand y they r doing this.

  • Abid Khan

    Dear All

    At last i got my visa ( HSMP Tier-1 ) yesterday from Islamabad against call letter.
    Pls note:
    PP resubmitted: 30 June, 2009
    Visa Issued : 09 October
    Received : 28 October

    All the best to all those who are still waiting and i know what we all have been through all this time.
    But now things have started imporving and inshallah there will be no delays i guess.

  • umar

    Hi guys
    my name is umar and i work in london as a Trainee Chartered Accountant on a work permit. My bro applied for a student visa on 28 aug and since then i have tried to locate his passport on vfs global and gerrys website but everytime i do that, it says “invalid search”. I got this mail from abu dhabi saying that they have processed the application and he should be hearing from gerry’s soon but its been over a week eince i got that mail but still no word. Did anyone apply in late aug and got the visa?
    also his classes were due to start in sep but i have enrolled him for nov classes now and i have got a new visa letter for that. Does he need to send this new visa letter to BHC or he would just have to present this to the immigration officer. I myself came to the uk on a student visa about 4years ago but things werent that bad during my time. Any help or suggestion would be much appreciated.
    thanks

    • Rehman

      @umar,
      He sould keep the letter and wait for the BHC call if they required.I don’t think they need it but it is pretty sure that Immigration officers will have to check this at Uk airport.

  • Kamran Niazi

    you could’ve helped in my Economics .. 😀 anyhow, i hope things work out for both of us and you did your bachelors from pakistan ?

  • Kamran Niazi

    I am hoping to get it VISA on Monday or Tuesday, PFL told me that VISAs are coming and they are hopeful that the students will get it in the next week. If you get your VISA a day later then your last date, you can scan it and send to Manchester through PFL, Manchester isnt giving anymore extension until we have a VISA and nobody knows when we are getting it. Nobody wants to take a year off .. me neither, but things are screwed and we don’t have a choice .. I hope we get it in the next week and Manchester will accommodate. I have booked every flight to Manchester .. you do the same ..

  • sana

    @ Kamran niazi
    yes pfl are my consultants..i really wish that they give me some extention..i donot want to waste a year..more extention is really required..

  • Kamran Niazi

    I asked all the admission officers of Manchester to extend course date. They have refused me. But I heard all passports will be back by next week. All we can do is wait .. 🙁 although you contact Preparation For Life (PFL) .. they are the official representatives in Pakistan 🙂

  • sana

    @ KAMRAN NIAZI
    U took admission in manchester uni?which course?i also took admission there..we should do something..cos my extention will aso expire on 16/10/09..kiya kare

  • Kamran Niazi

    applied on 21st August, classes started on 21st September got 1st extension till 5th October .. second extension till 12th .. I have emailed the Manchester University asking for another extension, I hope my luck shines and InshAllah I will save my year ..

  • Murtaza

    Hey guys, need an important information. How much important is an extension letter? If the date on my visa letter is 9th october, and i travel at a date later then 9th october, lets say on 12th or 15th, is it necessary to have an extension letter, though univerity has allowed me to come late after 9th.?

    Secondly, if it is very important, is an electronic extension letter acceptable? Like I can ask uni to scan it and send it to me and I may print it and take it with myself. Will that suffice?

    Please need a quick response.

    Dear All

    I forgot to mention one imp thing.
    Pls dont abuse ur purpose of stay in UK as well by engaging urself in activities that are against the norms and vlaues of that country.
    If u r a student behave like one.
    Try to finish ur studies by all means and do not extend ur visas for the sake of living in UK from fake colleges and uni ( their used to be plenty).

    Never try to get visas by forge means as this actions will deprive so many genune candidates plus
    it’ll bring a bad name to our country.

    Remember u r representing pakistan where ever u go, so plz behave like a good Pakistani.

    Last but not the least, Believe in urself and YOur God, and observe Namaz. Inshallah you’ll be successful.

        @Saira, No comments Saniorita.

        Didn’t mean to be rude and if offended i am sorry.

        One thing that Thank God i m not frustrated at all.

        did my Masters from Top UK uni.
        Came back when i’d still valid visa of more than 10 months.

        Have travelled Europe & UK many times.
        Working still abroad for a well reputed top class Telecom company as Project Manager.

        But i Love Pakistan more than anything and i am a proud Puskhtoon and Pakistani.

        Simply its really ridiculous to watching these silly scenes infront of UK embassy and Gerry’s office by we Pakis. Why? Becuz we have lost faith in Allah & that
        we think this is end of life. Got 2 change that sort of mentality.

        sorry Mr Rehman too but i din’t mean what i said. I guess u took it other way round.

          lost faith in ALLAH..!!!!!.huh….what are you!!!.Mr Telecom Project Manager..Kindly do your job and don’t bother to pass comments…

  • Abid Khan

    Dear All
    I’ve been in UK myself for six years did my Masters and came back in 2006.
    I am really disappointed to see that all the above guys and girls are almost dieing after UK visa and they are literally begging BHC.
    Remember one thing: Plz show some dignity and Ghairat and stop begging them. I’ve seen more than 90% of our students while abroad on student visas are working extremely disgusting jobs( Factories, security guards, dish cleaning, hotel servents,butcher shops etc)and for this prupose they are keep on extending their visas every year.
    Secondly i was so disappointed to see girls from pakistan specially karachi, that they do the most shameless things over there.They are so desperate after getting UK PP and for this purpose the can go to any extent.
    I’ve seen that myself in Glamnorgan uni. Pls pls if you are a muslim even by name, show some dignity and islamic values. Its a shame for the parents of all those girls students.
    Stop begging BHC for visa and when u r there dont forget that we are muslims. To hell with so called freedom (women).Single girls should never be allowed to travel aone at 1st place as they dont go for studies but ?????????????????????
    We Pakis dont have any respect in these countries simply because of our own actions as we are dieing to go there and adopt their culture.
    All the mails above shows that how desperate we are and further shows that we are a sick nation.

    The situation we are in is nothing but ” Ye hamare Aamal ki saza he Allah ki taraf se”. All those who are showing this much concern for the sake of Bull shit UK visa, have they ever shown any concern when they dont offer Faraz Namaz?
    When they dont observe Fasting?
    When our women have stopped even to bother abt they way they are dressing up?
    Where Parada has become Galli for these so called moderates?
    Where Parents are least bothered abt their kids offering Namaz and becoming good muslims first, but they are more cocerned abt how to send their kids to Europe no matter what it takes.
    Such socities have vanished in history and we need to Revert back to Allah for our life styles else
    we’ll be treated by others the way they treating us now ( my frustrated fellow brothers and sisters above ).
    May Allah forgive all of us for our sins and bless Paksitani nation with some Ghairat and Iman.

    • Rehman

      @Abid Khan,
      Well you know what dude, your are kind of sick person i assume…..you’ve lived your life over there and done what you wanted…huh..and saying we are begging.I like you to refresh your memory and think when you begged to BHC for visa, how was it then?..For GOD sake, We know who we are and u know you’ve also just proved that you are one of those guys that you mentioned above.
      You can express yourself also with some dignity but look what you’ve done…Bro no offence but you lived your time in an awful place…I’ve seen there many guys mashallah got close to thier religion when they experienced non muslim community..and I also have experienced there, Girls who didn’t care of thier dress in Paki started HIJAAB in UK.
      I would also like to add that these people here are not begging, they are anxious because they’ve spent thier money and precious time and waiting for they are being committed..they are exuasted and frustrated and kicking out thier feelings..(hope you understand feelings)Is this Wrong?
      We don’t need to defend ourselves.Stop reminding about your so called “GHAIRAT”.
      I don’t want to comment on your religious stuff becuase whom to i am answerable he is watching me and know me best.

  • Ali (Bio-issue)

    any idea if in case i get my tier-4 visa after my last date of enrollment in university can i still travel to the uk? cauz i gave my re-bio on 24th sep and the university gave me the extension uptil 9th october, if in case i get my visa after 9th can i still travel to the uk?

    • Sadaf

      @Ali (Bio-issue),

      unfortunately you will not be able to travel to the UK on your student visa after oct, 9th because the immigration officer will ask for your extension letter upon arrival and because the date would be stated you will not be allowed to enter the UK. I would advice you to confirm with someone else too.

    Can you tell me how come extenstion letter is necessary for travelling to UK? If we talk with our universities, and convey them that we will join a week or so late, and they agree with that. Tou what role does the extension letter needs to play? and how come it is essential?

    Attention ti all settelment visa applicants, hope this could help about the visa processing time.

    “Settlement visa applications in Pakistan. Please note that the UK Border Agency is currently meeting its target processing time of 12 weeks for the majority of settlement applications. It is taking the full 12 weeks to process settlement applications so please do not make any enquiries about your application before this 12 week period. Enquiries regarding the processing time of your settlement application will not be replied to unless the 3 month period has passed. We recommend that you take this into account when making your settlement application to avoid any disappointment.”

    salam to all.
    I have applied for Uk visa Tier 4 on 25 September and i have fully funded scholarship and also got extension date from university till 20 October while classes are going to start on 1 October.
    please share your experiences and give comment how long it would take ????
    Prayers to ALL

    • Murtaza

      @shery,

      Well, you may read the comments above. There is a lot of fluctuations. MAny applicants have not got their visas considering that they applied in June and July. Whilst some applicants of august have got theirs. You may assume that it might take a month. BHC claims 25 working days. Btw, which university are you going to?Undergraduate or postgraduate?

      • Ad from Karachi

        @Murtaza, I submitted my passport on 11th of august after an allowed appeal ( student visa ) , but still I have not heard anything by Gerrys or BHC. Moreover, I sent an email to BHC,Islamabad and they said, my email has been forwarded to Casework section for an acknowlegment and they will update me accordingly. As far as I can tell, UK government deleberately delaying visas especially for pakistani nationals. Please take a look visa processing guidance at UKBA website, then you will come to know what I mean exactly.

        Regards,

        • Murtaza

          @Ad from Karachi,

          Actually guys, the problem is that our decisions are made from abu dhabi. That takes time. Plus i dont know what they do here in Islamabad which also leads to a further delays. In the previous years, it was not that worse. Students used to get visas in 4 days in 2006 2007. And then last year, a friend of mine got it in 1.5week. But now.. huh!

      • Shery

        @Murtaza
        Thanks for your reply. I am going to Lancaster university in postgraduate course. My classes will commence on 5th october although the university has provided me extension till 20th october.

    It will be 25working days (Mon-Fri) from submitting my settlement application tomorrow. my status still says forwarded to Islamabad oc on..
    After reading peoples comments i don’t think i should be a expecting a call anytime soon even though they advised a decision will be reached in 25days 🙁 but it’s in the hands of Allah Mian so he will decide when mu husband gets his visa and when he joins me in the UK.

  • MasTer

    Murtaza congratsss! I hope it will be a positive decision best of luck. i also applied on 26 august now am also looking forward to call abu dhabi office… plz do let me know the phone numbers of BHC abu dhabi…. Congratssss again

    • Murtaza

      Well i dont know about these numbers. Maybe these are for the High Commisson.
      But this number is direct for the visa section and they are their to help you. 0097126101539

  • syed waqas ahmed

    AOA, to All
    same as other’s, i also applied on 26th August for tier 4,and still got the same status from days one to till now.i just want to ask u people,should i call to abu dhabi or not,and also, r they verifying the bank statement or job experience.and what time would i get my pp back with decision.

  • Murtaza

    Well guess, I applied on 27th August as menionted above for Tier 4 Student. And i first called Abu Dhabi on 14th sept and no decision was made by that date. I again called them today, on 17th sept and a decision has been made(Allahumdilalah) and my passport has been sent to BHC islamabad. NOw i hope that it is a positive decision and I get it soon:) InshAllah!

    You guess should call BHC abu dhabi and confirm the status of your applications. It does not have any affect on your application. They are very nice people and ready to answer your queries, whatever they are allowed to tell.

      • Murtaza

        @ Zeb

        The phone number for BHC Abu Dhabi is 0097126101539.
        Call them at 10-12 Pakistan Standard time. This is at what times I have called. I tried calling them around 4-5pm pst, but no one responded. Plus, they have fridays saturdays off. And sunday is working.

      • Murtaza

        Nopes. Its the same. And it wont change their either. Coz my passport will be in BHC islamabad for few days. I dont know what they do, whether do they verify documents or place the visa ticket on my passport or what. It will only change when my passport will be back on gerry’s for delivery.

    • Rehman

      no progress bro!!!! same old shit…..I agree rabia tht i’ve couple of friends and they applied in aug and got thier PP back last week…..got mail from BHC islamabad and Abudhabi….they just have some ready made mails in reply mode…If we couldn’t get PP By the end of this week then we have to wait till Eid holidays ends……

    Hi, I applied for Student VISA on 3rd August but got no response yet. My classes have already started from 7th September, my college were nice enough to give me two more weeks to get enrolled but it looks like my VISA is never coming. Today i emailed visa.abudhabi@fco.gov.uk and told them my situation and asked them if they can expedite my application. Hope they do so. I have only 3-4 days left. Can anybody guide me what else i can do.

  • Asiya

    Hi guys,

    Can anyone tell me what the computer reference number is. I’ve applied for my inlaws visa in pakistan, mirpur but the reference numbers I got are all coming up as invalid. I’ve tried calling the 09 number from the UK and it doesn’t work. Any help would be appreciated, Thanks

    • fiza

      hi asiya
      the invoice cum receipt which the gerry’s gave u on tht receipt
      right under ur name
      the ref number is written
      as m in karachi so my ref number starts like…
      khi/……/……/.
      n as u hv applied from mirpur
      then it would b most probably
      mir/……/……/.

      i hope m able to help here

      or u can call 8865 from ur cell fone

      or 090010411 from ur ptcl to ask how to track ur app…

      but this 0900 number can only b dialed by a Ptcl number…

  • Murtaza

    ok so they did specify that your decision was made on 8th and not before. I hope you get yours soon. I wonder what these BHC isl ppl do? and how much time do they take? do they verify documents? put a visa ticket? or whatelse?

  • Murtaza

    Those who have got their passports, any idea how much time did the BHC islamabad held their passports? if they would have checked from abu dhabi about their passport status and then in how many days did they recieved it?

    I applied on 27th august, and its still in BHC Abu Dhabi.

  • inayat

    hi

      • inayat

        ya u are right but yar me tooooooo much worried. one of my friend is my classfellow and he is leaving for uk on 20th sept. and classes are on 21st sept. he got his passport today.

        • mazhar

          Hi Inayat
          It is my request to please do not worry
          It is better for him ( ur friend ) to recive passport
          today,and it is better for u to wait and pray to God
          it may be,God likes ur DUA

          However i know many applicants,who submitted passport before u,in the month of July,but they people did not listen any news.and thier classes are also going to start on 21t Sep. WITH BEST WISHES

  • Asif

    I applied for a 5 year busines visa on 2nd June in Lahore & still waiting today! Emailed BHC Islamabad & Abu Dhabi many many times, but no help. One email did state that application was concluded in Abu Dhabi 21st June but status still shows as “Fowarded to Islamabad OC on”. Making me crazy!!

    Anybody else still waiting that applied in June?? How much longer can I be expected to wait?? I have held UK visa before & travalled to UK many times, but reading some of the posts I guess that is going against me as regards security checks??

    If only could be given proper idea as to how long it is going to take, instead of keep being told “shortly”……

  • Murtaza

    Updates from UK border agency website.

    11 September 2009: Student Tier 4 applications – processing times Pakistan.
    Due to IT problems, there is likely to be some disruption to UK Border Agency visa application processing for student tier 4 applications. Unfortunately, the time taken to process applications is likely to increase. All student (tier 4 points-based system) applications are being prioritised. The UK Border Agency is working to resolve the current IT problems and apologises to customers for any inconvenience caused.

  • sarmad awan

    hello everyone,
    I submitted my passport on 7th July at khi office and im also still waiting for my passport to come back. my classes are starting on 24th of sep and I am told to get extenssion for one month. they don’t care, all delay is caused by there mistake and wrong decision and we are punished. Its frustrating to wait for your visa when one knows that he will leave when this important doc will come back from gerrys. Allah help us all

  • inayat

    thanxs for your reply and sharing personal experiances. but bro i have classes on 21st of september and i donot have extension of classes. what shall i do now???? when a decison has been made so why are they taking sooooooo much time on it?????????

    • aadil

      i got reply from BHC islamabad

      Dear Sir/Madam,
      Thank you for your e-mail enquiry. This is to inform you that whilst the visa application has been processed at Abu Dhabi, this still has to be in a queue for further process at BHC Islambad before it is returned to the applicant through Gerrys’. Due to seasonal heavy intake of visa applications, there is a backlog with long processing queue. Therefore we are unable to give you an exact time frame.
      Soon as Gerry’s have the documents they will call the applicant for delivery. Please keep visiting the website http://www.ukvacpk.com to monitor progress on your visa application and wait patiently to be contacted through Gerry’s in due course.
      Yours truly

      you should get extension from ur uni….bcoz these guyz really take much time….

  • inayat

    hi i applied for my student visa on 19th of august 2009. i called abubudai today for my status. they told me that a decision has been made. i enquire about date of collection of my passport so they replied that we have hard copy of your documents your passport is in pakistan. can some body help me and update me upto when i can collect my passport along with my documents???
    will be waiting for reply.
    thanxs in advance

    • Rehman

      Bro! this is what precisely they said to me…I’ve been waiting for 2 months…i asked them too abt the date of collection but hkept saying tht i cannot give u exact date, due to heavy burden of application…I guess it will take futher 2 to 3 weeks…just guess!!!!
      hope get gud news early…

    Hi am a british citizen married to a Pakistani passport holder we’r expecting a baby end of this month my husband has applied for a visit visa temporarily I was wondering when do u guys think he’ll get an answer he submitted his biometrics on 11-08-09.btw I hope every1s issues resolve quicker but as u can see my situation is very sticky he’s applied for the 1st tym in his life.dua karien he gets to see his first baby in tym.

  • maria

    I applied for my kid’s visa as my Tier 1 (General) Dependants on March 24, 2009. We also gave the biometrics at the same time and were told that it will approximately take 15-20 days to process their application. But after 6 WEEKS we were called for the biometrics again due to some technical error in the system. So we submitted the biometrics again on May 11, 2009.

    Now the situation is that its almost 4 months to the second biometrics and still there is no reply. I am continuously checking the application status online and it is giving me the same status i.e. ‘Application Forwarded to Islamabad OC on….”

    Hello ppl,

    I am new to this Forum and wanted to comment on this thread as am near well ‘psycho point’ due to the Visa delay… I am confirmed for MBA in UK at RHUL and my course starts 21st Sep… however despite me applying as they say on the website…. ‘well in advance’ on 14th of July from Karachi… i have yet to receive any response. Have not contacted Abudhabi yet but will on Monday to get their status. I need to definitly be there before 20th in order to confirm accomodation and stuff and well this Visa wierd phsycho thing is kinda killing me…………………………………………..I hope Inshallah all of us get our Visas all proper done and good ASAP like in the next couple of days to end the agony. However I just wanted a reference, that off all who are active on this forum please state whether u are from karachi or not and how many weeks has it been…. for me its been 7 weeks… well above the 6 week thing that is circulated around so am going crazy now!!!

    hi there again,,,, i would suggest that stop waiting and try to make your self busy in something else, as dont worry you will get your visas atlast….and have all of you got extension? then its totally fine…or even i woud suggest that write an email to your respective admission offices of the college or universities and try to update them about your visa delays and they will deffinately accomodate you…..

    as i have submitted mine on 27th of August from Mirpur VAC . for tier4 student visa…and i`m from lahore ….i just got late for submission so i asked my university to give me some more time extension by emailing them….and they were so nice that the course director sent me a scanned certificate of extension on which she wrote to bhc islamabad that please give him a visa as soon as possible, if usman is not able to join us on 28th of september then we can keep his place on hold over the coming months……so i print it out and aatached wid my application….as my orientation classes were from 7th sept and latest date i cud join was 28th sept…..but now i`m tension free…….so u guys should do the same i mean atleast just inform them about delays and they will deffinately give u a favour

    People who got their passport back already, did gerry’s call you to tell you that your passport is back or did your status change online to ‘ready for collection’? I am worried that gerry’s might not be able to contact me through phone because my phone often doesn’t work, so i am counting on the website to show that my passport is ready to be picked up. I applied on 13th July too and i am so worried now. 🙁

Don’t know the authenticity of this though. But according to this, those who applied like I did on July 13th might have to wait for another week or two.

    The most i can afford to wait is another 2 weeks. If my passport is returned after that and i am given the visa, i will probably not be able to make it on time for the start of my course. 🙁

    I asked him the same that how come people who applied after me got their visas before me and he had this really lame ass reply that all cases are individually treated and yeah well that’s just how it is.

    Gerrys is of zero help. I’ve emailed the BHC islamabad and requested them to update me on the status of the application. Let’s see if they reply.

    Okay, i applied on 24 july from lahore. And considering that i had arrived back from the uk on the same day. And that i already hold five british visas, one of which is still valid for another four years. I should’ve recieved my passport by now, but what i gather from all this is that your previous visa’s might not essentially make you a special candidate. So, we must wait some more! Good luck all

She also had her course start date as 21st sep like me but she had to attend a pressional course starting 7th Sep. She got hers in just a couple of days over 6 weeks… its been over 7 weeks (also I applied from Karachi) for me and I have been going absolutely crazy here now as i have to travel in 15 days!!!!!!!!!

    @ eshawh. I’ve got a multiple visit visa, which sadly doesn’t qualify for a student one or can be transfered into one. However, i did manage to find out where my passport is, which i think in times like these is a feat in itself! Good luck for manchester, you’ll grow to like it, it is after all full with your university’s campuses! @ everyone else, good luck!

      Parveen,

      I went to Visa Center on September 3rd to submit re- finger prints for third time and I got several people there who had been applied for visit visa since 2nd Feb.

      A lady was also came there for third time and she said that there was a marriage ceremony of her daughter on April 18th but did not able to attend that as she is also victim of pending process. She came there also third time with me to submit finger prints. But she was really disappointed and fed up with Gerry’s.

      So you have to wait but how much dont know….

      Thanks,
      Ali

    I have applied for student visa Tier-4 and submitted my application on 24th of june. Gerrys gave me a reference number and told me to check my passport status after 15 working days, but from very first day i always found this message ‘your application forwarded to islamabad oc on’, what does it mean? when will i get my passport back? how could i know my current status of visa? people on different forum talked about Abu Dhabi. Is there any involvement of Abu Dhabi in my visa? Can anybody guide! i will be thankful. If someone have Abu Dhabi contact number please provide me or any other number where i could contact someone to know about the status of my application except GERRYS number i already have gerrys number. Thanks to all in advance…

    I submited my documents on 10th of June. I have allowed them 7 weeks. I had strong follow up from Abu Dhabi. I know that now my documents are in BHC. I cant understand Why they are such slow.

    It is such a tortouse process.

    • haseeb

      have you received it yet? i applied just a few days after you and they havent returned my documents either, the same story with the abu dhabi processing done but islamabad bhc is processing it now.
      do post here when you get your call

    • Ali

      Hey Anosha,

      You know what, I submitted my documents on 19 March, 2009 and still haven’t get any news from them.

      Although, I went three times after 19 March to submit my finger prints and last time was on September 3rd. So You have to be patient and UK embassy is facing some serious system problems and also they have stopped Pakistanis to go there for security concerns.

      My wish to go there is going to die as they are taking tooooo much time to process, there are almost 6 months have gone but no new yet!!!!!

      Did you apply for student Visa? Also, sorry to say that your yahoo email is incorrect…

      Thanks and remember me in your prayers,

      Ali Zia

        Hi Ali,

        The what the hell should we do? How long should we wait??????????????

        I missed my classes. I cant move on in life.

        Even we cant withdrawl our application.It takes a month to have it wirhdrawn , but that is also not a fix date.

        I am really fed up of this systems and procedures.
