Ur application is now with BHC Islamabad for stamping and for the rest of the queries. So, hang on there and u will certainly some sort of news in a week or two. Do another thing in the meantime- drop an email to the BHC Islamabad and they will let u know what is going on.
Their email address is

I have applied for student visa Tier-4 and submitted my application on 24th of june 2009 from karachi. Gerrys gave me a reference number and told me to check my passport status after 15 working days, but from very first day i always found this message ‘your application forwarded to islamabad oc on’, what does it mean? when will i get my passport back? how could i know my current status of visa? people on different forum talked about Abu Dhabi. Is there any involvement of Abu Dhabi in my visa? Can anybody guide! i will be thankful. If someone have Abu Dhabi contact number please provide me or any other number where i could contact someone to know about the status of my application except GERRYS number i already have gerrys number. Thanks to all in advance… i want to share one thing more; yesterday i went to gerrys office at 3PM i saw people came for passport collection. I asked them about their submission date most of them told me they submitted their application between 5th June to 12th June. but most them had applied for visit visa.

@soundguy229

same here, they are taking way too much time.........and I have no clue what 'checks' are they carrying out. As I see it, if a student has a valid visa letter and enough cash in his account, then he should be granted a visa.

yesterday uk visa correspondence team replied on my email. but my status is still same "islamabad oc on".


Dear Sir/Madam,



Thank you for your email. I can confirm that we have processed your application in Abu Dhabi and you should hear your decision from Gerry’s shortly. Please do not contact Gerry’s directly about this as they will contact you when your paperwork is ready for collection.



You can monitor the progress of your application by checking the Gerry's website at: www.ukvacpk.com.

@soundguy

Best of luck, seeing that you and I applied on the same date, I think I may be getting a call from Gerrys any time next week also. Islamabad also takes 1-2 days to stamp the visa etc.

All in all, I wish you best of luck and a sound future! :)

@Eshwah

you applied on the 30th of July, the minimum time they take is 2 weeks, the maximum is 6-7 weeks. So I think you are safe. No need to panic, but you may get your passport back just around your course start date.

Secondly, if you applied from Islamabad then it takes far less time, In either case, you need not panic as you should be able to make it to the UK in time. And the first week of the course is usually orientation...

No, I'm afraid from what I've heard and experienced, it makes no difference at all if you have had multiple stamps on your passport.....

@usman

If its easier for you, then apply from Islamabad, it takes far less time to process your application, plus the appointment queue won't be that long.
