I never escalated or emailed anyone
Apologies, I misread and thought you did.

To give me some peace of mind - is the "Remove File" open now gone from your UKVCAS account as it's been reviewed/approved etc - or is that option still here?

Hi Folks,
Got my approval letter today from home office. Such a relief this is!
For benefits of others my case is as follows:
Paid for super priority appointment: 16Dec
Attended appointment at Manchester library : 22Dec
Decision made by UKVI: 24Dec(within 24hrs)
Approval letter received by post: 2Jan (within 5working days) with NO confirmation Email.
Mine was ILR application- Set O Tier 2 (General) after 5years of sponsorship with 2 different companies (changed employer in-between so have 2 COS)
Other info: As I've haven't received any email about the decision and my online application was not freezed after appointment - I was linking this to the delay. Called up Sopra call centre this morning (after holding line for 78mins) and they have confirmed that despite the fact that documents are not freezed they have forwarded my case to home office on 22Dec itself after biometrics appointment. Documents which has been uploaded/available till the date of biometrics is being send to UKVI and after that addition/deletion of docs have Zero impact on the case.
I sincerely wish all others you are waiting should get thier affirmative decision soon.
Let me know if anybody has any other questions!!!
This forum is such a support to me, thank you all.
Hey sidg congrats on your approval. Can you please tell me what company delivered your letter and was it signed for ?

Hi SidG,
I think vibe123 was referring to the approval letter you received i.e. whether it was delivered by Royal Mail signed for or DX delivery.

Congrats to those of you who received the good news today. It sounds encouraging to see more people getting the letter/email communication today.

As far as I’m concerned I’m still waiting since the 17th of December :cry: but I’m trying to stay optimistic. I will keep you posted and hoping from all to do the same.

SidiBou
Thanks!

Hi All,

Does the delay has anything to do with the premium centres which we have attended?

Also does writing to the local MP help? How many of us have tried it and got positive result?

My details:
Premium service center: Wakefield Library
Attended appointment on : 06 Dec
ILR application- Set (O) Tier 2 after 5years of sponsorship visa

Escalated to HO twice and emailed once. Got the standard email response.

Hoping for a positive result !

For me the approval letter came by Royal Mail (needed signature for letter) and the BRP came via DX courier (signature also requires). Hope that helps

Hi All:

I attended my biometrics appointment on 26th Nov and had not received any communications. I have called the HO for 4th time and I was told to e-mail send an e-mail to the following address:

applyonlineE-support@homeoffice.gov.uk

Has anyone less been told the same? During my last escalation on 20th Dec I was told my only option was to write a complaint which I did. I am now being told to send an e-mail to this new address. Total mess and utter confusion.
Which form did u fill? Route?

Hi all...

Still waiting...
My submission was @ Manchester Library was on

Sat, 24th of NOVEMBER 2018 😫🤭🥶

(I only applied for myself, thought of applying for family once I get mine)...had to go all the way fm London.

Application for ILR via 5yrs Tier 2 route- 24-hrs Super (Duper) priority service...a straight forward case basically.

Did escalate it 4 times, to which I got 4 generic e-mails within 5 working days...the only change being- there was a mention of refund.

Yes....the list of applicants with dates (and ideally with type of application) needs unpdating...a simple communication from the officials would have helped a lot....shall update of any news...tnx all😍☺️👍

Hi ianone, yes the BRP was delivered at 930 this morning by DX. The letter was received on Monday the 31st by Royal Mail. That letter on Monday said “within 7 working days from decision date” (27th I think for you too). I’m sure your letter will be coming soon, if not the BRP directly. Keep us posted...

Thanks for sharing, this indeed shows that '6 month email' is indeed generic and has nothing to do with real decision date.
