Very sorry to butt in, but I'm getting a bit nervous about my application. I'm an EU citizen and here is my timeline:
Application sent: 10/3/2016
Money taken: 14/3/2016
Confirmation e-mail received: 06/4/2016
And I've heard nothing since, so I am a bit worried that most people here have gotten theirs back in 3 months...
Has anyone else experienced longer wait? If I get in touch with the home office, are they allowed to give me any information on my case, or do I have to wait here in agony until the 6th month mark? Thank you for your help!
They are not obliged to give you any information until after 6 months and this they seem to stick to. At least with your email confirmation you should have a case number, which is more than seems most receive recently, so I guess you could get lucky and someone can assist you, though they do seem unwilling to do so. Always worth a go right?
Stefan7 received his DCPR after 105 days, though his document was dated 24 days earlier. It seems they have a lag for sending out the confirmations after they are approved as well as delay in processing.
I assume you have not changed address and it could have been sent to your old place?
Hey Bumble, thank you for your reply, it made me feel a little better, perhaps I'm just one of the unlucky ones, and it will come somewhere within the 6 month mark. I just called them, and you're right, they refused to give any assistance, which I guess make sense if they are snowed in, but absolutely nerve-wracking for all of us...
I haven't changed my address.
I have been living in the uk for 10 years, arrived when I was 14 years old and went to secondary school, sixth form college, then university - total in education over 8 years. I've attached all of my education certificates with my application.
I then started two part time jobs for a year or so and attached all of my payslips also, but then I had a 4 month break in employment and lived of my savings, did not claim any benefits.
After that I've started full time employment for over a year and attached all my payslips etc.
Is it possible my application will be refused, because of the 4month gap?
