I received the same email the Monday after my online submission.... but BEFORE attending the UKVCAS appointment. So unfortunatly I don't think the email confirms anything about UKCVAS submitting the scans to the Home Office.kassa wrote: ↑Fri Mar 22, 2019 8:59 amThere is a confirmation letter. I went for my appointment in Croydon on the 16/03/2019. On Monday 18/03/2019. I received the following email:
"Dear MR XYX,
Case ID: xxxxxx
Thank you for your application to the Home Office. Your application has been received and is being considered.
It may take up to six months to make a decision on your case. If we are unable to process your application within six months we will tell you as soon as possible.
On my actual appointment (in Reading), it was a shambolic to say the least. The staff were very nice, but obviously struggling with the "technology". The two automated biometrics cubicles were broken, so everything was done at an overcrowded desk, where they have squeezed on a PC, fingerprint scanner, document scanner, passport/barcode scanner, DSLR camera, web-camera, and some other wand-like device. Any they have to use the webcam to video the capturing of the biometrics, which means repeatedly trying to align it with what they were capturing. Amazingly the appointment was on time, but I was very pleased I'd submitted all my documents online to save a lot of time!
