How long will my blue card take?
As a guide, allow at least 28 business days for processing where an application is completed in full and where there is no police or disciplinary information.
If more information is required to process or assess your application, then your application may take longer to process.
If you are concerned that you have not heard from Blue Card Services after 28 working days and you have not been requested to provide further information or have a criminal history, please contact us.
