Processing Time for NTL Application in 2016 for Postal Applications

Home Office did not have the information requested.

Dear Home Office,

What is the current average processing time (Waiting time) for the NTL (No Time Limit) Application in 2016?

What is the typical response time from receipt of application to issue of approval and receipt of Biometric Card for a straightforward (meeting all the requirements and is a valid application) case.

Is there a backlog in your office for processing NTL Applications?

Yours faithfully,

Miss Ching
