waoo, these 2 got the approvals and they applied in March, but don't forget guys around 200-250 people apply every day and only a small fraction comes here and give us their time lines so we can not judge the HO speed based on only couple of applicants time line.

I hope HO will try to clear some back log before holidays.

Well, I fell to the temptation of calling HO today largely due to the fact that I'm yet to get ack letter 3 weeks after the money was deducted from acct.

Yea, was told case is yet to be assigned to case worker...and can't tell whether ack letter has been sent or not.....yah all see why I've resolved to waiting till Sept?

Hi Alta, I have already received my ack letter on 7th dated 31st, your payment was taken on 28th if i remember correctly.....you should have received by now....you can blame Royal Mail 2nd Class

but from what they said ...its good news then.....your application is being checked and in verification stage before being picked up by caseworker....and i dont think we will have to wait until september..i guess at the most end of May.....fingers crossed...

I was out of country from 14/04/06 to 17/04/06...The man at NCS said that I am not eligible as I was out of the country today, exactly 5 years back. But I argued that when the HO will receive the application it will be 18/04/11 and as per that time I was psycially in the country five years back. He asked me if you want to take risk go ahead and I did.... now sure how HO will react so bit nevervous....
After checking the Special Delivery proof online...I am relaxed now...:))

In the acknowledgment letter, do they put the official date of receipt of the application? Is it the application delivery date or the credit card debit date?
