:evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: Pretty annoyed.. Not jealous for the people who got approval. But me who applied on first week of March is still struck and people with 4th week got approvals. Same like me, people from February and even January didnt get approval. I am talking about the straight forward applications. When I was ringing them, they are saying its not even allocated to a case worker. So why dont they do the First come first serve basis and then the people will get a clue whats going on. I think HO is hiding behind the excuse of 6 months time span which they were allowed, so that the CW's can leave our life on their draws and celebrate holidays and BBQ's..

Hi, Can you please let me know on PBS calculator print out? Is it the old PBS calculator print out which you used for Tier1 or ILR? If new then please let me know the link etc for PBS calculator for Naturalisation. Also can I use the similar PBS calculator for my spouse(who was on dependent HSMP & Tier1 ) as well?

Please let me know.

They aim to complete 10 applications a day so by the end of the week or earlier they could complete it but then whenYou factor in HO delay in posting the documents it could be next week before you receive it. So just hang on not long left now. Mine was completed on the 28th of April and I only got it on the 8th of may. As long as its with a caseworker half your worries is over. Another thing is sometimes the call center guys dont have up to date info.

Hi faani, I think you guys will be out your miseries by next week. I know the wait is really bad as I was gutted each day when I saw the postman bypass my house or didnt deliver the brown envelope. It all will be over soon dont worry. It has also gotten a bit lonely in this forum ive noticed especially for the fact that as people get approved they stop posting.

I made my application on the 27th of March. I was bored at the office and called up the 0300 123 2253 customer service number at about 4:50pm just to get an idea of my application status. A nice friendly guy picked up the phone and asked for my name,dob,ref number and nationality- after a few seconds he said ''we aim to deal with all applications with a six month period''- (normal standard reply). He went on to say your application is waiting allocation to a case worker :cry: :cry: :cry: lol and should be dealt with soon.

I'm just going be patient and wait- One day I'm sure the brown envelope would turn up :D .. Congrats to those who have received their approvals so far :D

Hi Lasthurdle,
I am a 27th March applicant as well. I called on 6th May and got same reply. Looking at few 26th March approvals which got done on 1st and 6th, I was hoping that our case might have gone to a caseworker by now. But now after your call, looks like that either info is not right or there process of allocation is crap. It will be interesting to see if an applicant after 28th gets approval before.
I don't have issues with case worker taking time but definitely can't get my head around the process related to allocation of case.
Hope to get it soon.

Hi Haidi5

You're right it would be interesting to see what happens this week with approvals from the 4th week or even folks who applied just after us. At least you're not alone :) The positive is that March approvals are coming in somewhat ''thick & fast''.

@gaboon_viper- fingers crossed, it might be worth updating your timeline so it's added to the 4th week as well :)
