How are people getting information about the status of their applications?
Every time I call (both the 0845 and 01516 numbers) I get a recorded message which tells me that they are not giving out progress information for any applications made in the last 6 months.

Is anyone else having any problems and does anyone else have any solutions (besides waiting of course :))?

Congrats deeday :)

EDIT: Managed to get through finally to be told it is now with a worker.

Type of Application:Marriage, ILR, 3 years residency
Method: Through NCS
Date of Application:11th March
Account Debited:16th March
Acknowledgement letter:23rd March
Decision: Yet to be told
Approval letter:Yet to be informed.
Date of Ceremony:TBA.

In limbo now, but at least our application is with a case worker.
Does anyone know how long a case takes once it has been allocated to a case worker?
EDIT: sorry in such a muddle didn't read the top post on this page!!

Guys keep posting the decisions, we really appreciate it as they encourage us to keep up the faith!

Model, In the acknowledgment letter what was the date of the receipt of the application mentioned, is it the date of receipt (as per royal mail) or the date of debit of credit card?
It is the date payment taken.

The ackn letter may have the date of the ' payment taken' but it doesnt give you a receipt date.
Receipt date will be the date its signed for as per royal mail tracking.

Pathetic service by NCS at Hatfield.Needless delay in payment due to careless processing by NCS.Anyone had similar experience?

That is indeed shocking service, you should ask for a refund.

Did you get a letter from HO about this or a phone call?
Thanks

my time-line and some advices

Post by waleedakeel » Tue Apr 19, 2011 9:35 pm

Based on 4 years HSMP + JR and 1 year ILR
Date of ILR Jr Approval: 15 March 2010

NCS or Postal: NCS Vale of Glamorgan Council
2 adults and 2 children

Date of submission: 21 Feb 2011
Date of receipt of application at UKBA Liverpool: 22 Feb 2011 (Guess)
Date debit card deducted: 1 March 2011
Date of receipt of acknowledgment letter: 4 March 2011 dated 28 Feb 2011
Date UKBA made decision: 25 March 2011
Date of receipt of Approval: 4 April 2011
Date of ceremony: 7 April 2011
Date of Passport application: (C&S) 7 April 2011
Date of receipt of children passports: 13 April 2011
IPS letter for interview sent out on: 13 April 2011
Date of Interview: 16 April 2011
Receipt of passport: 19 April 2011 dated 16-4-11

Few points I hope they help
- Calling home office to ask for process advance is not helpful at all, better to wait.
- As most eligible people applied before 6th of April to avoid fee increase, it takes nearly double the time for the same period of the year.
- Although postal application could be faster in both citizenship and passport, it is safer to use NCS and Check and send as many errors and mistakes could be picked.
- Passport interview is solely for check of identity and you don’t need any documents with you.
