I applied for a UK Standard Visitor visa for on 23rd August 2018 at the visa application centre in Mumbai. On the same day, I got an SMS saying The visa application for [GWF reference number] was forwarded to UKVI on 8/23/2018.
I have applied for non-settlement visa that is supposed to be processed within 15 working days. Four of my colleagues applied at the same time and were issed a visa on 8th Sep 2018.
Today I received this notice by email:
NOTIFICATION LETTER TO ADVISE THAT APPLICATION MAY NOT BE PROCESSED WITHIN SERVICE STANDARDS
