waiting time after uk visa appeal is allowed?

  • Hi! i applied for uk spouse visa in april,08 which was unfortunately refused with the right to appeal. I went into appeal which was allowed in nov 08. My papers were then sent to islamabad british embassy. I have been confirmed that they reached here on 19th jan. now m in queue. I will be contacted when my turn comes. I was wondering if anyone else is in the same position. How long does it take from here? Is there any way it can be fast tracked from here? Its been almost a year and my visa is still in pending...would appreciate an advice or experience...thanks

  • appeal

    this may take up to 5 months or more, once the appeal is accepted youll be notified through post mail, that your appeal is allowed and accepted, you dont have to do anything after this, as they will sent this decision back to islamabad, and the embassy will contact you.

    my appeal was allowed on 17/02/2009 and since then i waited for almost 6 months cause i got my visa on 26/06/2009 after a long stress and may be what helped me most was that i use to go to the ECO and also send emails to UK visa appeals and Ait asking them about my visa since there if im not mistaken i got reply from IND UK Visa saying they have copied my email to the Entry Clearance Manager in S.A cause they are the one who has to make a follow up since i"ve been waiting for more than 8 weeks and by that time it was 4 months
