Good morning timelinemates,

It's friday morning and i can't help but think it's been a slow week for us.I had hoped there would be more approvals than we've had and i'm starting to get the 30 day itch( i blame fingerscrossed123 :lol: :lol: :lol: ).

Hope next week bears more fruits.

Have a good weekend to all.

@sililiza69 - Haha! Yes, my impatience is contageous! It is very hard to be patient after the first month has ticked by... who knows what today or even tomorrow might hold!

@dantata - Congrats! Your dates are the same as mine (and sikiliza69 and a couple others) so let's hope we will get our approvals soon too!

Hello friends, just got the approval letters for my wife and daughter in two separate envelopes but not my approval letter. The envelope in which my wife's approval letter came also has a "page 2 of 2" which presumably is second page of my approval letter. My question is can I call the council and explain or should I call HO? Thanks

What to do

Post by lam85 » Tue Sep 24, 2013 10:31 pm

I see there are people getting their letters that applied after me... Do you think I should call or email ukba as I have yet to see any updates there are about 4-5 people who applied after me who already received their letters :( I'm getting so anxious and frustrated .... Also since I'm from a low risk country I can't think what may be holding mine up... Does anyone have contact details for ukba ? Does any one know why ukba seems to have slowed down these last two weeks ?! I am entering my 7th week of waiting ... Grrrrr :(

Emailing the team @ ukbanationalityenquiries@ukba.gsi.gov.uk
Add your application reference and explain precisely that you made a joint application and the page 2 of approval letter was missing from the envelope received.

or just call your council and find if certs have arrrived their end.

Please keep the forum posted.

Just called the council and they say "Please wait as you would get a ceremony date and letter from the council once we (council) hear from the HO. Once you receive that, you dont need your approval letter".

So I guess i should wait for a few days. Its a bittersweet feeling but have no other option but to wait!

Thanks
