Eligibility criteria: Tier 2 + ILR 1 year

Date of application: 1/12/2019
Payment method: Debit Card
Date of acknowledgement: 2/12/2019
Date of debit of fees: 2/12/2019
Date of biometric letter received/issued: 1/12/2019
Date Biometrics enrolled: 3/12/2019
Date on Approval letter: Not known yet but got a reply to my email on 15th to confirm it was approved/letters issued.
Date of receipt of approval: Not yet, but called Council and they got my details today.
Date of receipt of ceremony letter:
Date of Ceremony: booked for first week Feb (private).

Thank you all, especially aman90, for helps regarding this journey. Your contributions make this forum incredibly helpful for inexperienced members like me. Several observations that might be useful for all:
- Waiting time starts from the date you submit your application. Biometrics date is irrelevant so you don't need to pay for early slots if free slots available in 2-3 weeks.
- If you email home office for updates and don't get reply, it means they have nothing to update you. But if your application was processed, they would update immediately. My case, I got reply just 10 mins after sending (NationalityFrontEndTechnicalSpecialists@homeoffice.gov.uk)
- Try to search for information here to get the best experience/lessons. Solicitors may make mistake sometimes as they are human.
- Openness and honesty should help. If you are in doubt of something, just declare it or write in additional information section or cover letter.
- After you have submitted the application, you don't need to inform things that are not significant such as FPNs unless you are convicted. This is confirmed by the HO's helpline as well as members here. But they do suggest if you want to be open, just inform them - it should help in case you have made mistakes somewhere in your application.

Thank you so much, everyone! This forum has been so helpful! I'm waiting to get a phone back from the council to book a ceremony, cause noone was available to pick up the phone at the time.
