When does your current visa end? If it's gonna end soon you can get it pushed to the front of the line and 2 to 3 weeks at best or 2 months if your current working permit still has time.

A few more details would let us help you better.

Can't talk about getting a new one but it took me over a month to get my ABC card then 4 days to renew my visa. Used to take something like 2 days to renew your FEC before.

They ask for a ton more papers than they used to both from the employer and the employee. It's a new system so kind of a complete clusterfuck at the moment because even the people in charge have no idea what they need from you. Tell you they only need X and Y, call you 2 days later to say they also need Z, and then call you again 3 days later to say that finally they need A and B but didn't need Y in the end. So the whole process should be smoother next year as they get used to it.

Also I'm kind of a special case since I have my own company and sponsor my own visa, but I'm almost sure that they ask for the same documents from your employer.

A:I'm prepared to give the guy some slack. He asked a few shifty questions in 2012 then went dormant for 5 years and suddenly appears asking newbie questions. A bit suss but who knows, he could just be a moron. Benefit of the doubt given.
