To date, a total of 42,295 applications have been received under TAMS II. There are currently 4,595 applications under consideration for approval under tranche 18 which closed on 21 August 2020 and which are currently undergoing administrative checks. We expect to be informing applicants of their result in the very near future.

All applications received in a given tranche are initially checked to ensure that all administrative issues are in order. Once this process is complete, a ranking and selection is carried out and all eligible applications selected for approval are further processed.
