I can make a wild guess that the moderator is a human.

Guys please dont get me wrong, but if we discuss about some useful stuff here, then moderators will have no choice but make this as a sticky post.

Guys - it doesn't matter if this is a sticky or not - all we need is some place where we can discuss on applications apart from BC Timelines

no even i havent. I applied on 13th. So think its too early to start calling without any reason.
There is one forum member who applied in June and has already received his/her approval. Application was family member of EEA national. Not sure it was quick because of that. If not, I assume that June applicants will start hearing from HO soon

Yes,best to wait for a couple of weeks more before making any calls..

I think lots of April and May application are still waiting for result, I applied on 14th of May and its still going throguh initial checks as of first week of July. As there were number of approvals added here by the users who applied on around same date as me so thoguht to check and called HO but they said going throguh Initial Checks. I asked to the advisor what are the next steps and she said:

After Intial Checks (these are checking details with HMRC, references, absences and any other supporting info you give in the application),
it will go to
- Allocation to case worker
- If Case workker thinks then it will go throguh further checks otherwise decision will be made

If case worker thinks that further checks are required then it will go throguh those checks, but the adviosr didnt tell me what further checks are.

But I am not in panic mode just yet :)

Submitted my application 3 May, called 23 rd June and was told my application is awaiting allocation. The decision ( positive) was made 5 July. I am writing this to encourage you guys, i know how frustrating it is to hear those 2 words. My thoughts are with you, I am sure you'll get your answers soon. Funnily enough mine came when my thoughts were completely elsewhere :wink:

Nationality

Post by rightmove » Tue Jul 12, 2011 11:56 am

not sure why we dont share this, but i guess Nationality has a bearing on time line. Is there any harm in sharing this info alongwith everything else. Just a thought. May be certain nationality go through more checks. And hence it will give comfort to the members with same nationality about the timeline.

that's true, but if they do any external checks, some domestic agencies of a particular country may take longer to respond. Just a guess

i was one of those people, just got an invitation letter from the home office, saying i was approved and should contact the council. thus it seems invitation letters are send by the home office, not the local councils. My friend received an invitation letter separately in the post couple of days after receiving the approval. The reference i gave was the same H/O reference number which was sent in the acknowledgment letter (same numbers)
Hope it helps
