My wife just received this text from VFS, about her settlement application.
"The processed visa application for GWF123456789 was ready to pick up at VFS on 4/24/2018"
Is this a YES!! I hope so, a sleepless night ahead until she picks it up in the morning.
My wife received a similar message last year.
Let us know how you got on.
We have a visa. My wife collected her passport from VFS this morning. The visa runs from 24/4/18 to the 24/5/18, so she should be here in the next couple of weeks.

1 month!!!! lol
Melteddrummer, it was 2 days short of the magic 12 weeks. We applied on 26th January and received the visa on 24th April. It seems the norm for settlement applications these days.
Congratulations ace_rimmer! :-)
Great news. Good to hear that all of the hard work has been worthwhile. Now you can start and make plans for the future and work towards achieving FLTR!
Now, although it is still a 33 month visa, you only get an "initial" 1 month to sort things out and get to the UK but, as I understand it, it is possible to "re-Apply" and extend this month for another one if affairs are not sorted in time.
Also, as Melteddrummer says, make sure you look at the next visa NOW.
Yes it is a pain when you thought all the hard work was over for a while but believe me it is well worth doing now (yes things may change but not that much) to save you a lot of hassle later.
