Additional info:
1. I applied for both my kids who are under 10. I failed to find any professional referees so used two of my family friends here instead and a letter explaining the reason.

2. I received a letter and the certificate in the same envelope for each of my kids. Not sure if that letter is the approval mentioned above.

Interim updates:

25-07-2011 - Was told that there is a huge backlog and it is now taking 3-6 months to process each application which is clearly not the case going by some of the (recent) timelines here. Wonder if there is a "queue" system at all or whether the application are picked at random and processed?

Eligibility criteria: (section 1(3)
Method of application: NCS (wandsworth) ll August 2011
Date of receipt by UKBA: 12 August 2011
Date of debit of fees: 23 August 2011 (7 working days)
Date of receipt of acknowledgement: 27 August 2011 (dated 23rd)
Date of receipt of approval: 26 September 2011 (dated 22nd)
Date of receipt of documents: NA - NCS appointment
Date of receipt of registration certificate: 26 September 2011


Child born in UK. Parents gained ILR in July 2011. NCS appointment was £20 and very well worth it as I had made a minor mistake on form, and got to keep all documents.

Good luck to all others waiting.

Update: Called on 20th Sept (4 weeks since payment taken). Was told they estimate 12 weeks for childrens applications at present.

Update 2: Certificate arrived in normal post 26 Sept (they processed it 2 days after I called them, when they said it would be another 8 weeks!). Letter of approval and certificate were in same envelope. It was not sent by registered mail, or in a hard envelope - and is a bit bent and battered but still a wonderful piece of paper to receive! Best wishes to all else waiting. All up took 6 weeks from NCS appt to certificate processed, plus a few extra days to arrive in mail.
