Average processing times 

Please note that all displayed times are averages

The processing time displayed on the page is an average for the last seven days calculated on the basis of the time needed to process complete applications that are not missing relevant information.

Some applications will be processed faster than the average while others will take longer. A longer-than-average processing time is often due to the application missing relevant information or documents which is requested from the applicant. Also, applications may take longer to process if a large number of applications are received over a short period of time.
