On August 24 my biometrics were collected at the Visa Application Center. On the 29th I received an email saying "Application Received by UK Visas & Immigration".

Until today I didn't receive any additional email, but this one:

On the other hand on the TLS site, in "Track my application" the timeline looks like:

Services Selected - done

Services paid - done

Application Submitted - done

Transferred for Decision - done

Received by UKVI - done

Decision Made - not yet done

Ready for Courier Return - not yet done

Dispatch by Courier - done

All this stuff confuses me... Does this mean that they made a decision and just didn't yet send an email? Does this mean that they just sent me back my passport and they yet have to make a decision?

P.S. I have a flight this Friday, is there any chance to get the visa on time? I applied for the visa in Moldova. Oh yeah, I also received this email two days ago:

Also, when I try to track using DHL's site it says: (Not found): No result found for your DHL query. Please try again.



  • Did you reply to their email which was asking for documents? – Hanky Panky Sep 13 '17 at 13:50

    Sure, in less than 1 hour I've sent them the bank statement for last 6 months and a photo of my booking confirmation. It's has been read one the same day 4 times and one more time the next day :) (thx Mailtrack, lol) – Postica Ðenis Sep 13 '17 at 14:58
  • Then don't worry too much about the confusing status. Wait for your passport it will arrive with the decision. So many times I ve had passport in my hand with the visa where the online status still said pending decision – Hanky Panky Sep 13 '17 at 15:01
  • Good, right now I've received another email from DHL about the shipment, the estimated delivery is on Friday, I hope I'll know the decision till my flight at 10 p.m. Thank you very much! – Postica Ðenis Sep 13 '17 at 15:04
  • P.S. I hope they decided to give me that Visa)) – Postica Ðenis Sep 13 '17 at 15:04

Everything is okay, just 10 minutes ago received my passport back and I got the Visa. On the TLS site the same timeline, no updates. Received the shipment 1 day earlier.

  • Great, enjoy your trip:) – Hanky Panky Sep 14 '17 at 16:36
