Return of originals

Post by Tre » Thu Nov 01, 2018 4:07 am

Dear all
I made an online application at the beginning of October and have sent the HO the originals as required including my current passport and resident permit. However I am going to have a job interview next week and the interviewer wants to take a copy of my current passport and work permit. Do you know when the HO will return the originals to us? Will they usually do so at the same time when they approve our applications?
Thank you very much and look forward to hearing from you soon.
Best regards

I received mine after I got my approval letter from HO. Maybe 4 days after approval letter

I applied in the 26 August and received approval 29 September or thereabouts
