Re: March 2015 Naturalization application timeline

Post by members » Wed Dec 02, 2015 6:02 am

Any March applicant still waiting? Applied on 02 March; it's been nine months and still waiting. Done everything possible (mp, email, calls etc.) only to avail nothing. I keep sending them email (further inquiry email address), which they sometime reply and sometime don't. To make things even more distressing, HO recently replied to my email with the blanket/generic information that it would take another 3/6 months for the application to be decided.

That should have been the first thing from HO when my application went past six months in September.

Unfortunately they didn't send any correspondence until the mp got involved, and when the mp got involved, all they said was this: "some application will take longer.... blah blah blah... there are some outstanding policy issues... blah blah blah..." There was no mention of a time frame.

Why 3/6 months email now? Where should I go now?

Any senior member, please help!

Applied on 03 March 2015

Outstanding policy letter received in September, but there was no deadline by when they will process the application; received another email in December that application will take another 3/6 months...

Life is not a joke, but UKVI is!

In the last 10 months i didn't get any reply from them...I called them so many times but every time they say your application is under process...and now i have received a letter from home office after 10 months for an interview....anyone experienced such interview ??? please help...
I don't want to add to the length of this topic which no longer bears any resemblance to a timeline topic due to the continuous chatter.... But suggest you create your own topic or perhaps raise your question under the following topic which is related to naturalisation application interviews... The information already available may also be helpful. http://www.immigrationboards.com/britis ... 70195.html
