Golden Visa Online Renewal

Hi guys, does anyone know if SEF opened automatic renewals for GVs for cards that expire in the second quarter? Many Thanks!

Not yet. There is a few of us in the same boat. Check the Biometrics for renewal thread, you will find some more information there.

Hi all, for anyone who has already done an online renewal, how long did you wait for your new card to arrive? Especially anyone who renewed Q3.
I did my first renewal in November as soon as the Q4 online applications opened. My lawyer said the card could take 1-3 months because of the changes at SEF. Is that right?
