I m a bit confuse....

Post by danivale » Fri Nov 26, 2010 10:10 am

I m not sure if "confuse" is the word or maybe "worried" should apply better...
I sent the form with all my papers and they received them on 9th of July. Then I receive the COA letter like around a month later.
After that, in September 1st I requested my passport and marriage certificate to apply for a National Insurance number, and they sent everything.
When I applied for the NIN they said it was denied because of the home office... so I called and they said that I don't have the right to work in this country so I asked them why, as I m married to an European citizen and they said that I haven't send them the marriage certificate... So I told the lady that I did send it and I asked it back to take it to the Job Centre and they said that they were gonna send me a letter saying that I can work and if they needed the marriage certificate back they will call me or my husband and ask for it.
That happened on October 21st so I waited for a letter that never arrived... Last week, I called again asking what happened with the letter, and the guy I talked to said that the letter was issued on 25th of october and he was gonna report that I didn t get it and send a new one.

Today, I just called the home office and they said that a desition has been taken on november 24th and I m gonna get all my papers back in a few days but they didn t say anything if it was approved or nothing, she said she couldn t give me that information over the phone, and to be honest, now with all the mess they did with my papers I have to say... I m worried because I don t want to do all over again.. I ve been waiting enough

I just called the HO this afternoon to enquire about the situation of my application and I was told that a decision has been made and I shall get a letter from them within the next 2 weeks.

Is this their normal saying as I was expecting her to say I shall get my documents and passport back?

I need someone's response fast. I'm really panicking right now.

Here is the history:
Submitted application - 12/07
HO received on 15/07
COA dated 06/08
COA received on 16/08

No need to panic, Generally the HO just say if the decision has been made and that you will receive your docs in the post. Just because she said letter doesnt mean that it has to be bad news. Keep your fingers crossed and just wait to get your documents back.

Yes, but what should I ask them? It clearly says in CoA that I'm not allowed to call or write them until 6 months end...
Do you think I will get it till March?

you must have sent the passport back. Did you send a covering letter or smth with it to explain them, or just passport and that's it?

Hi
This is what happen to me. I sent my application end of May but the UKBA told me they did not receive it until July when they sent me the COA. In October I called them and ask for my wife EU passport and they sent it after 2 days. End of October I call them to say my wife is now self employed and the man told me I dont need to because a decission has been made. He didnot tell me good of bad but when my documents came back it is positive.
5 years resident stamped on my passport so be hopeful.

Residence card arrived separately in a piece of paper.

- Submitted at the end of July 2010
- Request passport back when submitted
- Passports arrived 2 weeks after submission
- COA arrived 3 weeks after submission
- They never asked for the passport back
- Received a paper with the residence card 03/12/10
- RC issued 22/11/10

Weird that it is not printed on the passport, but I guess it's fine.


Good luck everyone! And thanks a lot for all the help on this forum!

Perhaps because the UKBA couldn't be bothered to request that the passport be returned. Bear in mind that when applying for certain visas the free standing RC may not be accepted.

it looks like they've started processing August, maybe September applications..
what is the average amount of applications does home office receive per month?.. Anyone?
