may i ask how valid this information is, what is your source?? I see you have failed to answer other forum members questions directly!
How, when all other visa offices have told applicants that post June 2010 will be given priority would London be ALLOWED to delay processing to October 2011?!?! Many other visa offices are now sending medical request and asking for permanent residence fees a mere 6 months after sending their applications.
Why are you quoting 48 months when London VO is stating 13 months for Nov 2008-Jun2010???
I am very disheartened with this information you are providing and only request to know the validity of it. It is very unethical to provided such information without accurate and valid source.
I trust you will reply, if not, I can only assume that this is false and inaccurate information.
Hi EmmaJ - I think we should draw from our own experiences and see what develops over the next weeks and months. Already one post-June-26 London applicant (linkrink) has already reported that he ECAS status now contains the 3rd line "Your application was reviewed and we started processing on March XX, 2011" etc.
This is the text usually set when 2nd AOR is iminent and they start processing (i.e. background/security/medicals). Which certainly dispels Nectar's little theory about post-June-26 applications not being dealt with until October 2011 onwards.
Nectar continually dodges the question about where he gets his information from, even though I have directly asked him several times. Therefore I don't believe a damn word he says, frankly.
If London applicants don't start receiving AORs/medicals etc until after October 2011 then I will be prepared to eat my words, but currently my view is that Nectar makes up half this crap as he goes along - whether this is just because he likes to sound important, I don't know. But I just can't find any credibility in what he writes.
So I agree - it is very unethical of him to post this information without specifying the source.
All he really achieves with it is scare-mongering.
