@ mrmehmood Please respect that this is TIMELINE THREAD ONLY. Any question posts have been and will be removed.
(Casa, not CR001)
Please don't send me PMs asking for immigration advice on posts that are on the open forum. If I haven't responded there, it's because I don't have the answer. I'm a moderator, not a legal professional.

This forum has been my go to for reassurance and advice, you have literally carried me through two UKVI applications. To those still waiting don't despair, its a stressful and anxious wait, but don't worry they will respond eventually.

My timeline was very confusing as it took a long time for the money to be taken and then for the biometric letter to be received. I was worried and contacted them by email a few times but I always got the same reply that it's under progress. Each case is different from another, and while this forum is very helpful for information, don't despair if your dates were different or longer than others.. Good luck to you all!
