UK - Update on HSMP Processing Times

The Home Office has announced that Highly Skilled Migrant Programme (HSMP) visas are currently taking approximately four months at this time, until further notice.

Applications received by 15 March are currently being processed.

If you have a job offer, your application may be processed on an urgent basis but only if you have been waiting for at least six weeks. Requests for urgent treatment for reasons other than employment will only be considered in exceptional circumstances.

Please also see our article on Further Leave to Remain (FLR) applications.

Please check this site frequently for the latest updates on UK work permits and HSMP processing.
