Home office telephone number

Post by minnie77 » Mon Jul 26, 2010 8:51 am


Does anyone one know the home office telephone number that will be answer by a real human instead of machine?

Our application for EEA3 & 4 were already over 7 months...

I just want to check the status of our applications.

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards,

Update :

Still call the same number : 08450105200

Choose 1 then 2

Finally talked to somebody

Have been told our applications are at the final stage, we should have our passport back shortly.

Going to travel at the end of August, they suggest we should have our passports by that time.

I called this number today, choosing option 1 then 2, to enquire about the status of my EEA4 application.

For a surprise the lady, who answered the phone, was not rude like most UKBA employees. She put me on hold for about 4-5 minutes and then only told me that the application is in process and she could not give me any time frame. So, basically, no useful information :-(
