Request for more documentation regarding your travel?

I am getting worried as I did many (15-20) trips to Europe for work but well with in the allowed limit.

Why?

For my [10yrs] ILR application I had 75 trips [mainly Europe, also worldwide] and none of those were for work, but well within the limit.

Now for the naturalisation, I had 49 trips in last 5 years [again none work related], but as they are also well within the limit, I see no reason to be worried.

No, it was for proof my wife was exercising her treaty rights during the last years.
Don't worry, as long as you haven't been out of the country for more of the allowed time, it doesn't matter the times you've been away.

Thanks for that.

I wasn't worried because I travelled..but it might delay the process. It has been 2months since I applied and am already looking for the post every day. :lol:

Nothing for me.

Excitement's gone and I am preparing myself for a long wait...considering some people on this forum had to wait 9 mths to a year.

I know it is not the same, but

it is a stage that we have to pass

have you considered any action like writing, shouting, whatever :-)

Thought about it, and I know a couple of you have written to them. I'll wait and see what happens with your attempts...if it works I might just go ahead and try it. Alternatively, I might wait till the end of the month when it's passed 6 months and then I can really hassle them!

Finally! I received the approval letter this morning! It came in the Special Delivery prepaid envelope I sent to them, together with the additional documents they asked about two weeks ago.

Now to book the ceremony!

BC

Post by elliass » Sat May 05, 2012 6:46 pm

Hi all,

I applied for BC in mid of last Jan/2012. I called to inform them that I am going abroad for a month they asked me for my details to record my trip but the lady found out nothing in the system (still no file in the system) so she asked me to send a letter about the trip.

After I came back to UK called them to check whether UKBA received my letter the lady told me that it is recieved and my application is under consideration. 3 weeks later I called to get status the gentlman told me that my application is in the process but without any additional information provided by the advisor. I asked him franckly how many weeks more might take mine to be processed he said that It is defficult to know but it might take a month or two months more no longer. But I am not sure about what he said. Maybe only guessing.

A few days ago I called UKBA again and I asked them about my application but no luck to get any status because I am still under six months.

In this case I will wait till I pass 6 months then I will called them to get update about my application.

Thank you for reading my case and good luck all of you! :)

was it necessary to inform them

Post by iTSPossible » Sun May 06, 2012 11:19 pm

I assume once you submit your application and dont leave atleast 5 working days after it thats alright, after that you can leave for 1 month or so, and dont need to inform them,

Thanks Blackhole. Well, if it's 6 months now, you can start calling them every day until they give you a proper answer!
Good luck!

Someone I know applied in December 2011 - just don't jump on me - you know who - "forum police" particular member and I don't mean moderators or admin, just because it's a December application please, thank you.

They waited 5 months, rang to ask for documents to be returned as they needed ID, hoping for the approval decision to come along with the docs. Docs were sent back, but no decision. After 5 months. The wait is still on. How disappointing.
Anyone had the same situation? Thanks.

Thank you, Blackhole, it is a very stressful time, and there seems to be no method in this madness. I, myself, was quite lucky as I got my BC within around 2 months of applying, but this person I know doesn't seem to be so lucky.

Shame they wouldn't give you any updates, let alone an apology for going over 6 months...... Good luck to you and all the others that are waiting.

Anyone rang UKBA recently?
