Firstly, I know that there's a website by the UKVI to check the processing times (though lately it has been super glitchy on me). So the website states that for short term (6 month) visit visa applications from my country (Singapore - I'm not a citizen of Singapore) 99% are processed within 15 days. However that is for the preceding month (i.e. October).
I submitted my application in November and I understand that it might take longer seeing that it's the holiday period so there will be a higher volume of applications. However, today marks the 13th working day and I sent in an inquiry from UKVI's online inquiry. The lady replied that "I have tracked the status and found it is yet to be assessed by an Entry Clearance Officer (ECO)".
So obviously it would not be processed by the 15th working day.
Whilst I know that individual applications vary etc., in your opinion, what is the rough timeline that an ECO would take to process the application, 1, 2, 3 days?
This is so that I can plan my next steps accordingly seeing that I have another visa appointment for another embassy following this.
