The processing time for a UK study visa from Ethiopia can vary depending on the workload at the visa application center and the completeness of the application package. However, it typically takes around 3-4 weeks to get a decision on a UK study visa application.
It’s important to note that the UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) states that the standard processing time for a study visa is 3 weeks, but during peak periods it can take up to 8 weeks. It’s recommended to apply well in advance of your intended travel date.
It’s also important to note that some applications may be selected for further scrutiny, which can extend the processing time. In such cases, the applicant will be notified and asked to provide additional information or attend an interview.
It’s always best to check with the nearest UK visa application center in Ethiopia or the UKVI website for the most up-to-date information on processing times and to know the status of your application.
