I have been waiting for 7 months. My assumption is that probably UKBA is not currently issuing any convention travel document as they have a huge backlog to deal with due to biometrics been introduced. So I think they are giving priority to BRP applicants not us. None of us has received travel document or response for our applications since April last year. When my MP contacted UKBA, he was told that they are experiencing an increased workload because of BRP which was started Feb 2012. I am considering to cancel my application if I don't get an response within few weeks time.

Of course none of us can travel without travel doc. That's why I applied for one. But I had to cancel all my travelling plans because of the delay in processing time that we all experiencing now. I also missed quite many job opportunities as my status paper is being held as part of the application.

The only reason why I am thinking to withdraw my travel document application as I am going to have job interview next month. I will need my status paper to prove my eligibility to the employer.

. I went to solicitor last week and he told me that he can bring it to me within 4 weeks, but his fees quit expensive. What do you think......???

Hello everyone, I need your help on completing the travel document application
A-What do I put in section 3
3 . 3 Please give below the details of any previous immigration applications in any name you have made in either the
UK or abroad. If you need more space, continue on a separate sheet and enclose it with this application form

3.4 Have you had your fingerprints taken as part of a previous UK immigration application
made in the UK or abroad?

B-Please give details in the box below of any of the listed documents you hold. These documents must be
submitted with your application and must be originals. Failure to provide these original documents will
delay your application and may result in its refusal.

Biometric Residence Permits (BRP). Photocopy of BRP showing your current leave to remain and status
or original expired BRP

My question is: DO I SEND ORIGINAL OR PHOTOCOPY of the BRP??????????


Thanks ever so much
