I hope so .... but the last call i made to HO was about 8 days ago and it was going throguh inital checks so if i dont hear anything in 10 days i will call HO again, but for the time being i think i will hold on.

I see there are few users who applied in 1st/2nd week of May and when they called HO , they got answer 'Going throguh Initial Checks'. I wonder if there is a new process for checks, etc (?)

Yes it is part of their current process, but what i was trying to say if they have added some changes and going throguh more checks than they used to do previously

In 95% of the timelines posted, it doesn't take longer than 11 weeks for a decision to be made on an application. If after 11 weeks your application is not yet under consideration, I suppose you can begin to worry. Before that, try not to work yourself up. I know its easier said than done :wink: !

Hi Guys,

A quick update. just called HO.

I dint have my HO reference no. Lady said that she will check this time but from next time I need to have a reference no.

She checked and informed me that a decision has been made quite recently but no documents have been sent out yet. I asked how long will it take for docs to arrive, she said few weeks.

So lets see when I will receive my docs.

Vipul - no way!!!! that's awesome news man!
Well atleast you can expect something in a few weeks!!!!
When did you apply again? June 10th?
I am inclined to call HO too and see what response I get! but I guess I'll wait for another week!

Best Wishes

Ok great!

I will call them sometime next week - to chase them for the ack letter if I haven't received one yet! and cheekily ask them about the status too...

You don't get another letter. Once you've received a letter with your ref number on it - that is used for all further communications for the Visa category you've applied!
This is from experience seeing a close friend of mine applying for HSMP on 3 different ocassions but his ref num remained the same through out!
His first 2 applications were rejected and 3 approved!!

The professional reference for my wife got a call from UKBA at her work-place. This did not happen when I applied (last yr, same person who gave reference). Has anyone else experienced this recently ?
