    HI and welcome,

    There's no timescales for any decision. Backlogs are just part of the reason a decision can be delayed.

    May i ask if you've had a face to face assessment yet? Most people have those, a paper based assessment is rare.

    @ianwilce Hello and welcome to the community, nice you have joined us and pleased you have been given advice. Unfortunately as said waiting times are dependant on backlog and resources.Hopefully it wont be too much longer. What decision are you waiting for have you had your assessment yet, or waiting after sending in your application
