Have any of you gone through the UK skilled work visa process recently?
1. How much time does it take?
2. Is there any chance of rejection or offer withdrawal due to inflation?
3. How has your experience been?

4 weeks from biometric appointment
If you have an offer and all visa docs, visa rejection rate is even less than 1% for SWV

Got my SWV last month.

But be assured no employer will withdraw their offer due to delays in VISA. when they issue your COS, they usually pay a big amount for that, so they do understand.
