Provide online visa application tracking so applicants can check the status

Petition Details

There are huge delays in processing visa applications, and applicants are often left in the dark without knowing the status of their application. There is no online mechanism for checking the visa status, and the response rate to queries is slow and often does not provide useful information.

Additional Information

It is unfair to leave applicants knowing nothing about their applications, especially if they apply from inside the UK and cannot leave the country before a decision is made. This uncertainty causes much anxiety and impacts the well-being of applicants and their families. The Government charges huge fees for processing visas, and there is no excuse not to introduce such tracking mechanisms. People need to know their status, so they plan their life and activities.

If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
