My son's girlfriend applied for a visa in St Peter office to visit the UK for a couple of weeks and is under the impression it takes approx 15 working days (which I guess is 3 actual weeks) for a decision. But does that actually mean she will get her visa and be able to come to the UK then or could it be another couple of weeks after that? I'm not clear about his. Thanks.

As soon as the visa is issued she can use it.

The time it takes for the decision to be made varies according to quality of application and supporting documents, demand, time of year, political situation etc, etc.

It can take weeks, it can take a few days.

My mother-in-law got her very first visitor visa in three days. That was in Moscow in January.
The second one took three weeks because we applied in july.

Good luck.

Thanks. In the end my son had to put back her flights a week but she made it finally. (Yes, he shouldn't have booked the flights in advance) The visa took just under four weeks.
