Hello Friends, Can you tell me whether the UKBA service of assessing visa application is subject to general consumer laws or not ? And if so , can I raise a claim in court, six years after I was wronged by them. they had made and admitted their mistake in assessing my application but refused to refund my air travel ticket saying that they advise applicants not to book ticket in advance. However I don't think I am bound by their advise and that I want to claim this in court, five years after the incident.
Since February 2012 some people have had to wait almost 11 months for their FLR(M) visa application to be processed by the UKBA . Although most of us don't believe in miracles, it seems that the UKBA is now starting to get on top of the backlog, although they still have a good number of 9+ months outstanding. For people who applied after July 2012 the processing time was 3 months, which as many UKBA responses on the FOI site point out, they do everything date order .... erm!!!!!
So Teresa May took a big bold step and scrapped the UKBA and is going to bring it back into her embrace! Hang on a minute, a few years ago under Labour the immigration failed, and had one hell of a back log so they split it up to make the UKBA .... which has now failed and has a hell of a backlog ... deja vu ... guess what will happen in another few years!!!
