Hi all,
I'm new here after reading your very helpful suggestions for a while.

I would like to ask you a question:
I've sent my application on Oct,5th and HO has received on Oct 6th.
Today I've gotten my CoA...the problem is: together with my application I had included a covering letter asking for my passport (and my husband's) back asap since we are due to a friend's weeding on Nov,23rd. The CoA gives me a "case ID": do you think they are already working on my application and I should wait or do you believe I would better call them to remind my travel plans?

Any suggestions appreciated, thanks a lot

Passport return

Post by Bombom the Frenchies » Wed Nov 03, 2010 4:30 pm

Hi bertuzzist

I requested my passport return at the moment of application as well.
Even though I received the COA, UKBA didn't send me back my passport without request.

This is what I did..
First I sent e-mail which is only for requesting passport back as it was not within 10days of travel.
Nothing happened.
So I called UKBA for my passport return when it gets to 10days of travel.
Then UKBA returned my passport with next day delivery which I enclosed togather with my application.
I made sure that UKBA uses the enclosed envelop when I called up UKBA.

I made application in mid September, but I haven't asked to return my passport to UKBA yet.
So I don't think your application is in process yet.
Also I called them yesterday asking how long it will take for me to get RC.
UKBA answered now they are making decisions for applications made in June and July.

If I were you, I make phone call to UKBA requesting passport return as soon as possible.

Sometimes the HO does not ask you to submit the passport again. They just issue the RC on an A4 sheet, so they might not ask you to re-submit your passport and just issue you with an RC.

hello bombom,
thanks for your advice, it has been much appreciated.

I've just called UKBA and talked to an advisor requesting the passports back with the pre-paid special delivery envelope I've previously enclosed with the application.
How long did you wait after requesting your passports back? they told me it can take up to 10 days but I suppose if they are really going to use my pre-paid special delivery envelope then it'll be a lot quicker.

I requested my passport return on 1st Oct and received on 6th Oct.
There was a weekend, so UKBA sent back the passport in 3 days of working days including the delivery.
While that time, I checked the delivery progress using nexy day delivery tracking number.
By using this, I could know when it was coming.

here is the history:
30.03.10 application sent
28.04.10 - COA received
18.06.10, 26.07.10, 4.08.10 - called HO - was told "still in a queue to be assigned to the caseworker"
17.08.10 - passport with RC back, issued on the 5 August for 5 years
total: 4 month and 18 days

good luck for all who are still waiting.

This is my first post.
I have been viewing other people's status for a long time.
today I surprisedly got my RC.

My record is here:
19 July: next day delivery to apply RC
20 July: HO received.
20 Aug: COA received ( the stamp in the letter showed 12 August)
4 Nov: requested my passport back via phone because of christmas trips
they said they will send it back in 10 working days.
11 Nov (Today) I got all document back with my passport. While I was unhappy that I only request my passport back. I found a RC sticker in my passport. It shows 8Nov 2010 for 5 years.

Process : 3month and 3 weeks

Share this joy to everyone . And wish this can encourage people who are still waiting.

I've received my passport (and my husband's) back today. It took a while because they didn't use the special delivery envelope as per instructions... :roll: :roll:
but never mind, the most important thing is we got back our freedom of movement.

Speak to you soon :wink:
