Good afternoon everyone,
Hope you are doing well, I would like to share my timeline and experience, hope I can get some advice and if you saw my problem and that could help you avoiding from some potential trap, that would be perfect.
I am a non eu T4 holder who have married to a eu citizen who has already got his pre-settlement. i chose "post" for my application.
finished my online application form at 22/11/2019 with my BRP.
Post my document the next day, got my confirm email showed I submitted successfully and I should post my BRP on 26/11/2019
posted my BRP in the same day, and they received 27/11/2019
got my BRP back within one week
after that it is a long time waiting, during the time with countless calls and emails to the resolution centre.
until today 13/02/2020, still no biometric appointment letter, no coa.
they told me the reason it takes so long is because I used my BRP, obviously Passport and BRC is using the different system and BRP is under passport system, but since it is very similar as BRC, BRP application in the first place will go to BRC system, and it takes time to transfer from BRC to Passport system, so as a safe card if you have both a passport and BRP card, use passport to apply if you can, it will save your time I believe based on my experience. thank you , hope you all have a good day.
