Hi,Below are my details
Application Timeline
Eligibility criteria: 5 yrs Tier 2+ 1 Yr ILR
Method of application: NCS on 18/10/2013
Date of Application: 18/10/2013
Date of receipt by UKBA: 21/10/2013(I was told it will be sent to UKBA on 21st Nov) I did not recieve any receipt
Date of debit of fees: ? TBC

I am more worried now as i haven't received any Acknowledgement or my money taken.

My question is does UKBA send receipt of application even if its applied via NCS service, at the moment i dont have any reference number for my application either from UKBA or NCS Southampton :(

Guessing the last date should be Nov 15th rather than Oct 15th. Is that right krish? Anyway, congratulations! That's fast for an October one.

November 2013

Post by jotter » Fri Nov 15, 2013 1:02 pm

Hi all,

We don't have a separate topic for November 2013, which I can understand as the number of applications has been more of a trickle since October 28th. All the same, if we are not going to have a separate topic, it will be great if November applicants can make themselves known here. Apart from myself I could only see 4 applicants so far (innocentdevil, sam800, ah_kassem and reachren). There have to be a few more than that.

I know we'll be waiting a while but let's fill in the time gaps for an accurate picture. :)

UPDATE: OK, seems we now have a separate topic for November. In fact, looks like we have two. :) Pick one and stick with it.

Hi guys,
I just wonder if anyone has a similar timeline to me? I has been more than a month but I had no response from UKBA neither any money has been deducted from my account. I did contact UKBA by email but I got a very unhelpful response.

Thanks

Hi sarwar74. Hopefully the MP should be able to expedite your application. My application took 6 months to approve. I also had to get my MP involved who chased the Home Office on my behalf and the approval came through the door after 15 days of getting the MP involved.
