Agreed extensions of time

When we need more time to make a decision we will ask you to agree to an extension.

You can agree an extension on any application except for:

  • notifications
  • certificates of lawfulness

To agree to an extension send us a completed extension of time agreement when you first send your application, or at any time when we are considering it. Quote any reference numbers you have been given.

For applications where a legal agreement is needed, extend the time for a decision by at least eight weeks.
