UK Visas and Immigration do not provide specific UK Spouse Visa Processing Time for reaching decisions on Spouse Visa Applications. However, it has historically announced that it aims to reach a decision on spouse visa applications submitted via the standard service within 6 months of the date of submission of the application. Although in some cases, decisions can be made within 2 – 3 months of the date of submission of a UK Spouse Visa
it is advisable not to make travel arrangements or any other travelling commitments until you have received a decision from the UK Visas and Immigration on your application. The UK Visas and Immigration also offers a priority service, whereby a decision on your application can be reached within 24 hours of submission of the application. The priority service naturally carries an extra fee in addition to the standard Home Office application fee. It is important to note, however, that a decision on your Spouse Visa application can only be reached within 24 hours if all of the necessary evidence is provided to the decision maker. Failure to do so will lead to a request for further documents and a subsequent delay to the decision making process.
