Processing times are given in working days, excluding weekends and public holidays. Performance figures are updated monthly.

You can apply for your visa within three months of your intended date of travel. WorldBridge are only able to post-date visas by a maximum of three months from the date of the decision on your visa application. You can enter the UK anytime after your visa issue date but not before.

Applicants are strongly advised not to confirm their travel arrangements to come to the UK until they have received their visa.
It is strongly recommended that you do not buy a non-refundable, non-flexible ticket to the UK, until your visa application has been approved and you have received your visa. WorldBridge do not accept responsibility for any financial loss and do not fast-track applications solely due to planned date of travel.

The processing time begins when the UK Border Agency or WorldBridge, has received your completed application form, with your passport and supporting documents, your biometrics registration and the relevant application fee. It ends after a decision has been taken on your application and your passport is available for collection
