NSV claim about a 4 week average for those resident in UK - it does vary and can range up to about 8 weeks. Bizarrely Irish citizens seem to take the longest, with 12 months not uncommon.

I completed the online form on a Sunday and was complete by Tuesday. Must have been a quiet week.

Once you've fully completed and submitted your online SC application the AFCO will only contact you about it if there's an issue. You can check your status by logging in to the NSV portal if you're bothered. If it says your status is "in progress" it's in progress, if it says "complete", you're cleared.

I've been periodically checking my SC status and it still says "Awaiting Sponsor's Actions."

It's been like this for 2 weeks now, are my AFCO just being slack?

I'm expecting my application to take a while anyway due to previous service and the fact that my Mum has duel US Nationality, I'd prefer not to have any additional delays caused by it not being forwarded to the DV people.

If you've completed your part of the SC, it maybe that your AFCO is waiting for a reference to be received, but it would do no harm to give 'em a ring to enquire.

Hey rumration I apologize if this has been covered! Can anyone give me a breakdown of topics I will encounter whilst doing my sc? I passed my fitness test this week and also recievedy Raleigh date this morning (24th nov). My careers officer is away ATM and I'm keen to get the ball rolling. My careers officer is back on Monday but I'd feel better if I could spend this weekend gathering dates etc for my online form. I write this reply as I went on the vetting website and became confused on what the sc will entail it mentioned medical questions and interviews etc. Thanks in advance! :cool:

You'll need all your previous jobs and addresses from the last 5 years, national insurance number, parent's addresses and a load of other shit.

Bizarrely you also need to submit a naked photo of yourself to the Careers Office, something about proving you have no offensive tattoos.
