I applied for an UK Tier 4 Student Visa on the 22nd of August, 2012 and my application status on the VFS website still shows: “Your application has been forwarded to the British High Commission”.
A few of my friends applied on the same day and their status had been updated to “Your application is being processed by the BHC”, after just two days.
I did not subscribe for the SMS service during my application, but I am worried as to why my application status has not been updated yet.
Is it possible that they haven’t even started processing my application yet, or even worse, is it possible that they have misplaced my douments?
I have a UK Student Tier 4 Visa from previous years, and I am applying for a new one this time around. However as it has been 7 working days I am worried.
