the online applications usually have a part where you can download the biometric letter once you submit and complete the process.
The final screen I come to is just to download the document checklist and download the application form. I did both of those things and sent them off. There's only a sign out button.

The email I got confirming payment said 'You must provide your fingerprints and a photo of your face. You will receive a letter explaining how and where to do this.' I assumed I'd get a letter - there's nothing I can see online.
my husband did the application right after Easter 2019. no attachments when he received the acknowledgement email that HO had received our post. I guess we just need to wait for the biometric letter by post which basically sums up the 6 mths waiting time.

Hi everyone - thought I'd let you know my ROA has just arrived at home and it took five months and four days this time. Previous time, five years ago, it took six weeks. Criminal, really.

Application went in 28 November 2018, arrived today 2 May 2019.

Anyway, good luck to you all who are still waiting, I know it can be an anxious time!

When did you provide biometrics, and how did they contact you about it?

new online system mentioned as at 5 Nov 2018 no need to submit passport photos hence no passport photos were submitted. and still waiting for a biometric letter. probably should have provided passport photos in the post. anyone can comment?

I applied online in mid November 2018 and it did ask me for a passport pic.

I'm in the same boat, with the exception that I provided photos even though it said you didn't need to (I did that because some notes still referred to them). I was told in an automated email I would get a letter telling us where to go to submit biometrics, but I haven't yet received a letter (3.5 months later). Seems no way to get through by phone, so I wrote a letter three weeks ago, but no response, as I expected.

While I await my daughter's RoA cert, I applied for a new British passport for myself. Very quick, very easy, good communication, and much cheaper. Indicative of how poor UKVI is.

At about month 4 I did get through to a human who said they couldn't tell me the progress of my application because it has been outsourced and they don't even have access to any of the records!

I got a letter today (almost 4 months since application) saying I must supply 2 passport photos or app will be refused. Odd since I did actually supply two, even though the system said I didn't need to but would have to submit biometrics. Anyway, at least some communication, and finally an acknowledgement of the application.

I got my daughter's RoA cert back this week, about 4.5 months from application. As I said earlier, they contacted us for passport photos - even though we were told during the application process they weren't needed any more and we'd be receiving a letter telling us where to go for photos/biometrics.

after reading your comment we've decided to write a letter too in June to ask about biometric and received a letter last week requesting for 2 passport photos of husband. the letter is odd as there was no dept number or any officer name just Home Office. posted 2 photos to them asap. keeping fingers crossed that we will get the passport back before we travel back home end of aug!

Hi, How many days after sending photos you got your daughters passport?
We applied ROA for my Son 2 months ago, received a letter last Saturday 13 Jul to send photos (even though we sent with original application). We have our travel booked for 27 Jul, just wanted to make alternate travels plans if it takes longer.
