I agree with Green apple that starting from today all through to next week there will be more approvals coming through for all Dec 2013 folks. That word patience is really key but very difficult to have in this instance considering the news coming through and the number of months we've all been waiting.

One thing I know is that the best is ours, believe!

I am assuming again there is no sequence for processing applications. Pretty sure it is not first come first serve basis?

Why? Every application is different and therefore can take different times. Case workers can work at different speeds.

It's not a big conspiracy, you know.

I agree. But case not being allocated has nothing to do with complexity.

We may have started celebrating a little bit too early. I called the council for a private appointment, they have no knowledge of my approval yet, and I have not received the letter either.

Guess another weeks wait or so looking at royal mail times for second class post at the moment.

Can people please chill out and be patient? The target processing time is 6 months. Why is everyone so anxious since it has only been two months after you have submitted your application?

For the amount of money they charge, 6 months is not good enough, I am afraid. They should be providing a much better service than they do currently.

once. i asked about my update and you would not believe that they were counter questioning me saying "is there anything that I am afraid off".. common...... they can do better than that in giving a professional response.

I can only sympathise with everyone here. I have waited a full six months for my Indefinitely Leave to Remain without ringing UK Border Agency Customer Service line once for an update. Why can’t a lot of people here do the same? Remember you always have a choice. If you are not happy with Government then you can always choose this leave this country by voting with your feet. It saves you from all the headache and the expensive fee you have to pay.

I do not mean to be rude at all, and will all due respect Slchoong, not everyone is in the same boat. Some people are relaxed as there are no other pressing concerns, others on the contrary may have other bigger things resting on these applications.

As a case in point, most people here would have gone for an in-person PEO appointment as opposed to waiting 6 months for ILR, that should give you some perspective on how the rest of the world may think differently from you about some things.

This is exactly what I wanted to say...

from the posts, what I can see is that the majority of people are obviously legally here with an ILR, have very good degreesand work. Also again the majority haven't sent their passports so that means they are free to travel.

Don't take me wrong but just show some patience, we are almost there and 99% sure your applications will be approved either this month or next month.

Please stop nagging :D

For what it's worth, when I called them the other day they said my application was 'not complete'.

Progress, I suppose. ;)

"2nd Class Post" - got this info from Royal Mail's website " 2nd Class mail will deliver your letters and parcels in two or three working days, including Saturdays". Please don't hold your breath based on this info, I've seen 13days delivery timeline on this forum for 2nd class post, refer to p2kin's approval info.
