What does "ready" status mean?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I recently had my interview (nov 3rd) and wasnt approved as I was asked to submit my joint sponsorship application.

 

I submitted the application that same day via PDF as instructed and was then told to also have the documents couriered to the embassy which i did the day after. 

 

Yesterday my status was "administrative processing" and today my status has changed to "ready" it says (see below) -

 

does this mean I will have another interview??? I haven't received any email from them or anything ? :/ what does this mean? 

 

Any knowledge appreciated!

In London, it is sort of a generic status that can be there from the time your case arrives until it changes to Issued. You will not have another interview. Once it changes to Issued, you know the visa is printed and will be turned over to the courier shortly. Then you get an email about the delivery. 

 

Don't read too much into that status thing. It's not a great indicator of exactly what's happening with your case.

Thank you for your reply!

 

It changed to issued on the 8th November and I called the courier that I chose and they said my passport would be in a different area so gave me another number to use - which didnt work?! 

I have no idea how to track where my passport is :/ 

Should I expect an email from the embassy or from the courier? How will the courier have my email address? Do the embassy give it to them? 

Thanks for all your support :)

You made arrangements with the courier for return of your passport before the interview. That is supposed to be how they know which depot you chose or the address you chose for delivery. I believe the email is actually generated by the courier.

Yea I just chose the depot so I could go and collect it because I didn't want to risk no one being at home when it was delivered. Hoping I will get an email from the courier on Monday but it just made me nervous that the phone number i was given didn't work :(
