I applied on 3rd of October emailed them twice and got the same reply, application will take longer. Wish I could just forget about and not be this anxious but that’s nearly impossible 😔. Everyone in October seens to be getting their approvals.

You will probably get approved same day once they receive your certificate.

I hope so but i shouldnt have to take the test again as i used my b1 for settlement application 2 years ago and on the website and on the booklet you do not have to retake it if you already used it for settlement application. I have sent them a letter explaning that which they will receive tomorrow. Lets see what happens

Congrats. Seems they approved ours same day since we both applied same day too. Congrats once more. The wait can be draining but we managed to scale through. This forum have been of immense help. Goodluck to all those awaiting the outcome of their applications. All i can say is patience. As long as your documents are complete you will get approval. Mine took 84 days..Less than 3 months.

I will book private ceremony morrow as i cannot wait till Jan 2019. I need to get this done and dusted and start my 2019 on a fresh and clean slate.

So i was asked to call the coucil listed on my approval letter. I did call them on Sat and they gave me Ceremony which is for public for 08/01/2019 but i explored the option of going private just for myself which they asked me to pay £110 i think.

Yea I would have booked private ceremony as well but my ceremony is for next week which is not bad at all, i was shocked to be given next week date for the ceremony. Thanks again pal
