Recently I've lost my BRP card (tier 4 student) and I did my application in the UK, here is my timeline
2-08-2019 Saturday: Application on gov.uk
3-08-2019 Sunday: Bio-metrics Appointment (Premium Lounge)
waiting: Letter from Home Office stating that the replacement card would arrive within 7 days
waiting: BRP RC card received

since I've done the biometric appointment I did not receive anything from the home office
I suppose to have an appointment at VFS global tmw but unfortunately I cant submit the application without the BRP

Also, I've an imp trip to my home country on 19th of sep and I don't know if i can go without the BRP? I have a pic of the old one !

There should be an email address where you can let them know if you haven't received your BRP card. Otherwise report it here https://www.gov.uk/biometric-residence- ... ot-arrived

I had to do this for my husband as it took so long to arrive. Got it within days.

For my husband's timeline - overstayer 11 yrs
Aug 2016 - FLR (FP) Partner
Feb 2018 - FLR (FP) Partner refused
March - Aug 2018 - JR permission refused with merit
Aug 2018 - FLR FP (Partner) PSC - Approved

Letter received 4/09, dated 1/09. Still haven't received the BRP and DX courier has no record. This is unnecessarily frustrating.

This topic is NOT relevant your circumstances as you have applied for a visa extension and NOT a brp replacement card. They are completely different applications.

My timeline:

Application Made Online: 14/08/2019
Biometrics Appointment: 22/08/2019
Approval letter by post: 04/09/2019 (dated 01/09/2019)
BRP not received after 10 business days
Lodged online informing BRP not received: 16/09/2019
Received Email saying BRP "recently produced": 19/09/2019 (letter advises within 3-5 days)
BRP received by courier: 25/09/2019 (letter dated 21/09/2019)

As the above timeline suggests they simply forgot to produce the BRP after approval, so make sure you inform the home office if u dont get it within 10 days of letter.

Although I'm still within the 8 week timeline, still disappointed about how long the process actually takes after approval letter.

1. It is not HO that produces the BRP. It is produced in Wales by another agency. There have also been well documented technical issues with BRP production recently.

2. Your process was realtively quick, many wait upto 6 months.

Hi all just also posting my application processing timeline to share my experience too.

Application : BRP maiden name to surname change
Applied online: 30/10/19
Biometric appoitnmet booked: 1/11/19
Documents scanned and uploaded online:1/11/19
Biometrics submitted Birmingham: 4/11/19
Acknowledgement letter: WAITING
BRP received: WAITING


When I attended the biometrics appointment the person didn't even ask to see the original documents to the scanned uploaded documents. Expired and current passport were scanned. I still have my biometric card with my maiden name, she didn't ask if I should surrender it. Came home with passports and bio card and all my documents. Is that correct. Anyone with similar experience?

Hi Moneset. How you apply by solicitor or by yourself. And what is the fee. Do I need to book an appointment or I can send my all original document straight to home office.
