    Hello All,

    My sister and I applied for a UK visa, we forgot to ask where we would be able to track the visa application status. I would be grateful if someone could tell me how to track the UK visa application?

    Also please let me know roughly how many days would it take to find out the visa outcome?

    There are two ways in which you can track your UK visa application:

    • Online: You can track your application status online by visiting the VFS Global website and entering your application reference number and date of birth.
    • SMS: If you opted for SMS updates when you submitted your application, you will receive text messages with updates on your application status.
    To check your visa application online follow the steps given below:
    1. Go to the VFS Global website.
    2. Click on the "Track Application" tab.
    3. Enter your application reference number and date of birth.
    4. Click on the "Submit" button.
    Your visa status will be shown.

    • Application Received: Your application has been received by VFS Global.
    • Application Under Process: Your application is currently being processed by the UK Visa and Immigration (UKVI) authorities.
    • Decision Made: A decision has been made on your application.
    • Visa Issued: Your visa has been issued.
    • Visa Refused: Your visa has been refused.
    If your visa has been refused, you will be able to see the reason for the refusal. You can then appeal the decision if you wish.
