It takes usually 7 to 18 months to process an application.
It is difficult to estimate the exact processing times for applications, since the processing times may vary case by case. The processing times are longer if, for example, all necessary documents have not been attached to the application and further information is required to process the application.
You can follow the status of your application on your user account. Please note that inquiries about the status of applications take up our time, which may, in turn, lead to longer processing times.
