VK1979 QU0TE: Quick one - Did you receive all the suppporting documents along with approval letters?

Actually we had applied through NCS so all our documents were photocopied apart from the English language certificate. They dont send photo copied documents back and neither does the english language certificate.

thank you Zara and lumera. Not a good start to the weekend as my car got broken into while parked in front of my house - scary to think a stranger was within a meter of my window :roll:

No body gets their certificates back as HO keep them for the record. We were told this at NCS. Hope this help.

Thank you for that.

Another qn - My entry visa was on one passport which I renewed within
the last 3 years and my new/current passport had my ILR sticker. I sent both passports. Now when I checked the returned envelope, there is only 1 passport. the covering letter states 2 passports as enclosures but only one was actually in the envelope.

Any ideas on what I can do to get my previous passport. It is of no use but I would like to have it for documentation (evidence of previous travel visas)

I think you should write a letter to home office. Ask for your passport to be located and returned to you. When writing the letter state your reference number from the acknowledgement letter and your unreturned passport number (hope u would have a copy of that). You can also ask the moderator they might have professional view over this matter.

That is some serious backlog. :shock:

I also wonder if the higher number of applications in March was connected to the increase in fees?

Depends on if you did include a signed for envelop with your application thn if you did you will be always able to check it out online with your Tracker N that was provided in the first time u did sent the application at the post office.

If not i wouldn't think it will be signed for ! But i may be wrong .

If envelope is not included with the application, usually it will be sent in RM 2nd class. If you have read this thread, a lot of people complain about using RM 2nd class.

Can any body help???

Post by sheryar.uk » Thu Jun 28, 2012 1:25 pm

Canmy wife apply indefinite leave to remain in the UK as suppose of BritishNational?

My wife came to UK inApril 2007 as dependant of Work Permit Holder, as at that time I was on workpermit (TWES).

I applied for”indefinite leave to remain” on 23/01/11 on the basis of long residency in theUK and was granted an indefinite leave to remain on 20th February 2011. SubsequentlyI had to change my wife immigration status and she applied for leave to remainin as a “suppose of settled person in the UK “and was granted 2 years extensionon 13/06/2011.

I have recentlyobtained my British citizenship on 14/05/12 and also my two sons who are bornin the UK are British nationals.

In total my wife has beenliving in the UK for 5 years and 2 months (i.e. 4 years 2 months as a dependentof work permit holder and 1 year as a dependent of a person present and settledin UK). Is she eligible to apply for “indefinite leave to remain” now as shehas already lived here more than 5 years as my wife (dependant)? Or does sheneed to wait until June 2013 (i.e. completion of 2 years as dependent of personpresent and settled in UK)?
