The Home Office’s commitment is to process visa applications within the service standards which are offered. These can be found at:

Home Office Transparency data aims to set out how the department is performing against the commitments that have been made, in terms of the proportion of applications processed within the service standard that applied.

Average processing times are not published in our transparency data for spouse and partner visa applications because these do not relate to the commitments which are made to applicants.
