No criminal or civil convictions :), it seems because I previously lived in Ireland it's mandatory as they don't share the same CRB checks. Emailed them a couple of days ago to send me the address however still waiting! TC.

How I can get in touch with my local mp. Do we need to see him personally or write him the whole issue in email?

Please Advise!
Try search for your local MP via the internet and they usually have contact details on their website. Email, Telephone or Face 2 Face it surely depends on your MP preferred or most effective means of getting in touch with the MP mate.

Finally brown envelope arrived, after a long wait of 5 months.

My Time line
Eligibility criteria: HSMP 3 years+ Tier 1 2 years + 1 year ILR (Applied for myself, wife and 2 children.)
Method of application: NCS - Bolton
Date of application: 11/11/13
Date of receipt by UKBA: 12/11/13
Date of debit of fees: Payment drawn from my account on 11/01/14.
Date of Acknowledgment received: 15/01/2014 (dated 11/01/2014)
Date of approval: 10/04/2014 Post arrived on 17/04/2014
Date of Ceremony: Not yet


Apparently the delay was due my Case worker going off sick.

Also for KOLL requirements i had only submitted my Degree certificate and latter from university stating that my degree was taught in English.
I had received a letter from Home office requesting for NARIC letter. As NARIC letter was not required as per the home office website. I mentioned this clearly in a covering letter and also included a self assessment from the point based calculator. This was sufficient and i received approval based on this.

Thanks for everyone.
