How can I track my UK visa application using my GWF number?

11 Apr 2024, 27 mins ago

The UK visa application process involves several stages, from submission to decision. Throughout this journey, it is natural to want to stay informed about the progress of your application. Whilst the GWF number serves as a unique identifier for your application, it does not directly facilitate tracking.

Upon submitting your visa application online, you will receive an email confirmation acknowledging receipt of your application. This email typically includes an estimated processing time and instructions on what to expect next. Whilst not a tracking mechanism per se, these email updates offer valuable insights into the overall progress of your application.

If you have specific inquiries or concerns about your visa application, you can contact UKVI directly. They offer customer support services to assist applicants with queries related to their applications. Although this method may not provide real-time tracking, it can offer clarity on any issues or delays affecting your application.

We hope this guide has shed light on the application tracking process. If you have any further questions or topics you would like us to explore in future blogs, please feel free to reach out.
