OFSI licencing time frames
Due to OFSI experiencing exceptionally high demand at present, we are unable to provide substantive engagement on specific licenses within four weeks .
We aim to review all new licensing applications as soon as practicable. We are prioritising cases where there are issues of personal basic needs and/or wider humanitarian issues at stake which are of material impact or urgency, or which are deemed to be of particular strategic, economic or administrative importance.
If there are particular aspects of your application that you believe make your case especially urgent, please set these out clearly in your application for our consideration.
