I see no updates on Jan 2015 applications these days. My application was received on 27th Jan and I've been waiting ever since. I understand their service standard is 6 months but when I saw quite a few people getting quick approvals including one of my colleagues, I called them and they advised that enquiries on my application haven't been completed yet. I really don't understand what enquires they make and what's taking so long.

Hopefully one day the long awaited brown envelope will arrive.

I have received all my documents ( indefinite travel document and all supported documents) back with a letter saying to send urgently my old travel document ( 5 year live to remain) .The letter dated on 18 may and received on 21 may.
The letter specified that the old travel document is needed to prove the residency requirement.

I found this link about residency requirement.I didn't read at this stage of stress :D !
