4-6 months on average I believe. There's a backlog.

Sigh. You'd think this application was free the way they mess around, it's far from free. Awful service standards. Can I ask do you know the average wait from personal experience or are you a ukba employee ?

No I'm not a ukba employee. Numerous posts have been made on this and Victoria, from first hand professional experience will probably update this to longer than 6 months in some cases at present.

You may have a long wait. My wife had her Biometrics done back in June and we are still waiting for a response from the Home office. If you try to phone them they say they cannot check on the progression of applications made less than six months ago. if you do get through and like us you've been waiting for more than six months, then you have to try and wait for an adviser to be free. But they don't give you a chance to wait, you get a message saying "all our advisers are busy, you will have to try again later" and then the line goes dead. Almost impossible.
My guess is the average waiting time now is anything from 6 months to a year.
