You should also familiarise yourself with how we process your documents and how the decision making process works.

Current headlines 

Our normal phone service opening hours are currently 9am-5pm UK time, Monday to Friday. We are closed on Thursdays 10am-11am for weekly team meetings.

Occasionally we are unable to offer a full phone service to applicants, as we need to prioritise processing applications and decisions for our applicants, or because of public holidays. From Monday 25 July, our phone service opening hours will be:  10am-4pm Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. On Thursdays, our phone service hours will be 11am-4pm. 

Please only call if your documents were received after our current processing date and you have not had notification from us. We cannot confirm receipt of documents until they are processed - see How we process your documents.

Our thoughts are with those affected by the events in Nice. 

If circumstances beyond your control are having an adverse effect on making your application or meeting your offer conditions, whether you are in Nice or elsewhere, you can let us know using our extenuating circumstances form.  We will offer what practical advice and help we can.
