How will my application be processed?

When we receive your evidence

A Specialist Applications adviser will check that:

  • we’ve received all the documents you’ve listed
  • you’ve provided pro-formas to verify your evidence.

We’ll let you know if anything is incorrect or if any evidence is missing, and will contact your verifiers to confirm they completed the pro-forma you’ve submitted. We’ll also contact you with further advice within 30 days of receiving any hard copy evidence you intend to submit. You’ll have another 30 days to provide additional evidence after we’ve sent our advice on your initial submission of evidence.

Once your application is submitted for evaluation, it will take about three months until we give you your final decision.
