UKBA overwhelmed with settlement applications

The UK Border Agency is currently experiencing a delay in making decisions on settlement applications because of a significant increase in the number of applications being received.

The Agency normally makes decisions on most applications within 12 weeks and on all applications within 24 weeks.

“We are still making decisions on most applications within 12 weeks, but many applications are taking longer to resolve, which means that it may take up to 24 weeks for a decision to be made. We are working hard to reduce the impact this has on customers and apologise for any inconvenience caused,” the UK Border Agency said.
