how applications CTD are made.

Post by uchida » Thu Dec 05, 2013 11:58 am

Hi guys,
I'm seeking advise for a mate who has just been granted leave to remain as refugee. He received his BRP today. My questions are:

1. Can he travel to EU member countries with the BRP, without a national passport?

2. How does he go about applying for a CTD? he called a number supplied in the letter sent to him by the HO confirming his status, but couldn't get through to anyone, and had no success in making any sense of what next to do.

3. What documents doe he have to submit to make the application?

cheers, guys..looking forward to hearing from anyone.

cheers.

Just check your post 15 December 2013 is coming in next week that is why I have asked you which year? Secondly you can call them your self but you will be first listening some bad kind of music then after 26 minute some one can reply you if you have over 6 month waiting. other wise it will says your application in still in progress.

Alrighty,
I have been looking at everyone posts since i applied for my TD. I generally wasn't confident to do it directly to HO and i asked my solicitor to do all the legal actions on my behalf.


Here its my timeline:

Date of application: 17th of July 2013
Date of receipt by UKBA: 19th of July 2013
Date of debit of fees: 19th of July 2013
Date of receipt of acknowledgement: 29th July 2013
Date of receipt of travel document: 9th December 2013


Although it took them 101 working days to issue my TD, i was also informed by my solicitor that he ended up sending them a letter to speed things up otherwise they need to answer what has took them so long to issue my TD in court.

It's not fair if they charge people instantly but all of sudden forget about their application.

There is no formality on how they process the TD's.

Long story short, It's been really great to see your posts here, it did calm me down.
