    There is a section in the visa4uk website called PAYMENTS AND REFUNDS
    What is the visa fee refund policy?
    We will only refund your visa fee if you withdraw your application in writing, using the refund request form on visa4UK, before biometrics are submitted and within 3 months and 7 days of the date the application was paid for.

    Still awaiting for a decision but I'm just going to post it here for reference.

    Country applying from: Manila
    Type of visa applied for: Fiance
    Priority/Non-Priority : Non-Priority
    Date online application submitted: 29/03/2018
    Date biometrics taken: 04/04/2018
    Date documentation was received by UKVI: 09/04/2018
    Email confirmation received:
    Returned supporting docs back: 25/04/2018 (attached was a letter saying they've made a copy of all the documents<attached the letter as well>)
    Projected timeline given: No timeline given (is this normal?)
    Decision made email: Still waiting
    Email from VFS stating visa has been processed: Still waiting
    Date your visa was received: Still waiting
    Processing time from Biometrics date: Still waiting

    Is it normal that they haven't given a projected timeline? Makes me very anxious!

    Hi all,

    Just wanted to ask about Email confirmation- application under consideration by ECO.

    We have received the documents as previously stated from my post. But we have not received any sort of email confirmation whatsoever that confirms the application is under consideration.

    We are on Day 28 from when my fiance has submitted his biometrics.

    Does/Did anyone have any experience like this and is this normal?

    Thanks in advance!

    did you get a standard unsigned letter with the returned bundle---saying it had all been scanned ? that is the only confirmation we got. definitely no emails.
