UK Skilled Worker Visa Processing Times

The UK Skilled Worker Visa is a popular route for those who have a job offer from a UK employer and meet the relevant eligibility criteria. Once the application has been submitted, it is important to have an idea of how long it will take to process.

The UK Home Office provides estimated processing times for Skilled Worker Visa applications submitted from South Africa. These processing times are updated on a monthly basis and can be found on the UK government website.

As of March 2023, the estimated processing time for Skilled Worker Visa applications from South Africa is approximately 15 working days (3 weeks) for a straightforward application. However, this processing time may vary depending on individual circumstances and the complexity of the case.

It is important to note that these are only estimated processing times and there may be delays due to various factors, such as an increase in demand or if additional information or documents are requested by the Home Office.
