This can depend on the type of visa you are applying for and how quickly you get the required documents to us. As soon as you have agreed to work with us, we will send you a list of items and we can start the process right away. It will normally take us around 2 – 4 days to complete your application, but we do have the ability to deal with urgent applications that need to be submitted the same or the next day.

Processing times

Depending where (and when) you are making your application, processing times can and do vary.

‘Out of country’ applications

You will need to make and ‘Entry Clearance’ application at their nearest UK Visa Application Centre
On average you should expect a processing time of approximately 3 – 6 weeks, although in some cases, you can pay extra to expedite your application.

In Country applications

If you are legally resident in the UK, you will need to apply directly to UK Visas & Immigration.
Processing times can be anything from 1 – 6 months. In many cases, a 48 hour Priority Service is available for an additional fee.

If your application is successful, you will be granted Leave to Remain and this will normally be issued in the form of a Biometric Residence Card or ‘BRP’ although these are gradually being phased out.
MediVisas can help you with any or all the above stages.  Send us an email and see how we can help you.

* At the time of application, we will gauge how long the processing time should be; that said, global events and the complexity of a case may result in a longer processing time. Unfortunately, we cannot offer a guaranteed timescale, only an estimation.
