Hi Allesheikh
I applied on 30th March not sure if the application was old/new. Spoke to Home office yesterday and they told that it should be fine if I appled on 30th March and they even told that Biometric was not requied if the child is less thatn 2 years. Not sure why it was sent in your case. Anyway lets hope we get the certificate soon.

If it's any help (and it's probably not going to be) it took almost 3 months to acknowledge receipt of my 2 year old daughter's application. You can try emailing them and they will let you know whether it was received, which is what I had to do, but it can take up to 20 days for them to respond to that as well.

According to the guidance notes:

"The parents’ nationality and immigration status – we expect either both parents
to be British citizens or one parent a British citizen and the other parent settled
in the UK
." - did you satisfy this criteria? (I am not an expert in the rules but just checking what I know)

Does anyone happen to know if the 6 month waiting period begins after they've formally acknowledged receipt of your application or does it begin when the package was signed for at the Liverpool office?

Thanks!

Hi

Time actually starts from the date you posted the application but HO being HO don't know what the hell they are doing. What checks they are waiting for as this is a law so they have to approve eventually. They have started responding quickly in terms of acknowledgement letters and biometric but still no approvals. I hope they are awake. Good luck please guys do post on the thread once you receive approvals.

Thanks
Ali
