Has anyone here applied for a UK visitor's visa and dealt with VFS Global? Any idea how long it takes and any way to know what's going on?
I'm having a lousy experience so far with VFS Global. (People of the UK, you may want to look into how visa's to your country are processed...)
We've applied for a visitor's visa for my wife, who is not a U.S citizen and requires a visa. We've sent the materials into VFS Global (as we are required to), but it'll soon be three weeks and I haven't heard a word from them. Not even a confirmation that the materials arrived.
This would generally be annoying, but that fact that they have my wife's passport is causing us some stress.
What makes it worse is that their entire system is suspect - web pages that don't work, services that are paid for and do not work (e.g. paying for a shipping label and getting a blank one), slow or unresponsive support, and apparently support that is in an entirely different country and has no operating knowledge of what's going on.
In short, it feels like we dumped her passport into a black hole and crossing our fingers that it comes back at some undetermined future point in time.
Any wisdom on this process that anyone can share?
Anyway, enough venting for the moment.
