We're currently experiencing an exceptionally high volume of applications.
It's currently taking us 6 weeks to process online and email applications, and 10 weeks for postal applications once all required documentation has been received in our office.
If you have not heard from us within these time frames it means that we're still processing your application. If we need any more information from you regarding your application we'll contact you - you do not need to contact us.
