Issue is about receipt of applications sent by Special Delivery.

If you have any information please put it here, thanks.
If u have sent it through ncs then they do send by special delivery and as I said give it a bittime and hhopefully when they take fees u will know its in right place doesnt matter wat ukba contact centre told u as it maybe sitting somewhere in ukba liverpool not even opened by anyone and royal mail told u its delivered so thats it normally po box is collected every once a week

i think you can wait for 3 to 4 more days , as they started taking payment for the application submitted on 01/10/2013.

In 3 to 4 days , they will take the payment for your application and will send the acknowledgement.

i think and suggesting , you no need to worry whether they have delivered to PO BOX or G P Box.

@akhan25 The issue is, on royal mail tracking website it is showing as: Awaiitng for Collection. When I phoned Liverpool Royal Mail Delivery Office, I came to know that, NCS Hamilton has written a wrong address and it is not known Liverpool Delivery Office where to deliver it and it is lost somewhere. When I phoned Royal Mail Customer Care (0845 number) I was told, it is in PO BOX. UKBA Said to me, they did not receive the applications yet.

It is 10 days back applications were sent from Hamilton to Liverpool (on OCT 4th). All other applications sent by other NCS Offices were received by UKBA in Liverpool.

How can only our application is sitting in PO BOX it we go by your logic?

Something has gone wrong somewhere, now UKBA, ROYAL MAIL and NCS Hamilton have started blame game and telling me no one knows any thing.

Whom to ask and whom to approach in this situation? Please KINDLY advise us......

I applied at NCS Barnet at the Brent Civic Centre earlier this month. It was sent via Secure DX to UKBA in Liverpool. The employee there said the bag is filled with all applications from that day and sent out in afternoon around 4.30pm

I was a bit surprised as all other NCS posters mentioned Royal Mail as the delivery service.

@rajasekhar - have you got royal mail tracking number - did you check if that is delivered?

If it is delivered as stated on royal mail - that proof is enough

Even I applied through NCS on 5th - reached on 8th to Liverpool

Also, from number of previous posts it is evident that acknowledgement letter will be sent out on the day payments are taken (and not the day payments appear on statement)

So give it a few more days!
