January Application

Post by markdk » Mon Jan 21, 2013 9:44 pm

Eligibility Criteria: Spouse of BC (3y), but also HSMP (4y) +ILR 2y
Method of Application: NCS Hamilton
Date of Application: 3rd January 2013
Date of Receipt by UKBA: ????. Royal Mail tracking states "your item has reached the delivery office and is out for delivery", but has said the same for the last week.
Date of Debit of Fees: ????? Nothing yet (update: finally debited 2/2/13)
UKBA says: Nothing of course! (no reply to email 16/1/13)
NCS say: We checked with UKBA and they said "just wait a couple of weeks"
So my application is who knows where??!!
Update 27/1/13: NCS rang UKBA again and someone could actually be bothered checking their system this time...said YES, we do have it...
But still no debit of fees or letter confirming they recieved it.
Status: Limbo update: relieved
Date of acknowledgement of receipt: 5/2/2013 (dated 1/2/2013)
Date of receipt of approval: 20th February 2013(dated 14/2/13)
Date of ceremony: 19th March 2013 (first date free in Edinburgh)

After waiting a month for them to even debit my fees, only 2 weeks to process it! Thanks to everyone who has put time and effort into the website.
