Finally its here

Eligibility : dependent 5 yrs + 1yr ILR ( AN + MN1)
Date if application : 25th April - NCS Bracknell
Date of approval : 17th August
Date of receipt of letter : 31st August

Aplogies for the delay in updating - I was travelling

How it can take 13 days for the letter to arrive is beyond me.

Anyways, better late than never being the operative sentiment, now onwards and upwards to the private ceremony and then the passport.

Thanks to everyone on the forum for the support; and best of luck to those who are still waiting
