I applied on the 22nd of Jan (5 years Tiers1+ 1year ILR) and I'm still waiting. It is a Straightforward application. I can see that almost everyone is getting approval letter within 3 weeks...it looks like applications are either being processed within 3 weeks or 6 months and more. I will have to wait until the 22 July to enquire about the status of my application with HO (6 months)

It's good see that they are sending out emails to confirm approval.
Did any of you had an email when the application was received by HO?

Just trying to understand who gets emails and who doesn't.

Hi zonkkk, maybe they wrote to me via e-mail because I don't live in the Uk.
During the whole process I never received anything via normal post, not even the acknowledgment letter. In fact I didn't even know the reference number for my application.

Thanks for the reply. I live in the UK and they sent me an email confirming that they have received my application (it included the reference number). So I was wondering whether they would send another email when it is approved.
