More information

The final grace period for RO closed on 31 March 2019.  This means that we are now aware of all application numbers. However, there will continue to be applications "received" if, and when, applications move from dormant, or have an amendment made. Amendments to applications are included in this measure.

Grace period requirements require us to assess more evidence and, as such, applications take longer to process.

Amendments continue to be received which affects the queue length. The new approach to triaging all applications and amendments is starting to have an impact, with the queue reducing over the last few months.
