Waiting since 4th Dec.

My case is Tier 2 to Tier 2 switch, which should be the most straightforward case.

Sigh.

Hi,

I have done my biometrics in Reading centre under super priority service under tier2 general change of employment category on 5th January. still no news,

Dear old friends in this thread,

I had a short break during the xmas/new year time and expecting to get some news on my application but there is not any. Just read through all the post from page 33 to 67.

Thanks @oldmankensey for listing all people's application status and congratulations for getting your visa in the end!

Thanks @badhodor for keep updating us on what you did and hope you can get your visa soon!

Not sure about the others @FarooqShah86 @saimajaan @ecu-daba @qwmm @avishekm what is the status of your application?

Myself have been waiting since 28 Nov 2018 submitted via super priority SET (O) ILR

I have also escalated 3 times but this is just useless as I can see from you all and my own experience.

I email my local MP again today, hoping he can do something.

I have not wrote to complain to the HO thinking that it won't help, but will do today.

I am happy to discuss with you further on what we should do (together) regarding this matter, even face to face in London.

My email address is email address removed by moderator

Happy New Year all! Best wishes!
Good timing...Yes, indeed.
My Bio were submitted on 24th Nov...except for four generic replies, no case/ specific replies...

Acting together should be the priority 👍

I just called the so called customer service and they have processed yet another 'referral' for my application and said I should hear back within 5 working days. I'm sure there's little use of doing this but not sure what else I can do while I wait! :cry:

Does the rules of this forum allow us to send contact details through ?? If yes, then we could share our mob numbers and discuss what further...ridiculous.

Hi,

Application submitted: 08 - dec-18
Biometrics done : 19-dec-18 @ mark lane premium
Service : set (o) super priority

No communication , decision or letter from home office yet.
Called UK V&I to get an update. Later got an email saying " We aim to complete all applications within the 24-hour service standard. However, where we are not able to do this we will complete the application as quickly as possible and where delays in making the decision are not the fault of the customer, the super priority service fee will be refunded"

While it's good to know about refund, does this mean my application is now under 6 months service standard? :-(. Any experience anyone?
Did anyone have such response? Did you get your decision yet? How long did it take after such email or response? Please can you advice?

...just been a silent listener to this forum, but after availing a 24-hr service and having to wait since 24th Nov is killing...can’t concentrate on anything...


I had doubt that it would go against the rules of the forum- exchanging personal details...what if like Timothy suggested, meet up at a place, say London this weekend ???

Anyone (apart from a few lucky ones on this post) who enrolled biometrics 26 Nov - 1 Dec still waiting?
I applied for SET(O) using Super Priority at Manchester Library on 1 Dec.
After numerous escalations, contacting MP and also sending emails to complaints department, still no news for me.
Hi Cja

I am waiting since 8th December. Tried everything 3 times escalation calls, email to MP and complaint email but no news so far. Yesterday received a generic email saying that your application is under consideration and and we expect to make a decision within 6 months of the date of your application, which is our service standard" which doesn't make sense at all after one month. I haven't received any email from HO asking for any further information. Not sure what is going on. Mine was very simple and straight forward application: ILR through 5 year tier 2 (general) route Set(0). Previous to that i was on Post study work visa. Have got two master's degrees from UK. Every time calling customer service is useless.

Since posting a peronal contact is against the forum’s rule, shall we build a WhatsApp group and spread the id of it through private messages?

BTW, I live in London as well.

We will definitely post back any outcomes on this thread to help people that are suffering the same.

Don’t think you can PM either...if u keep it generic- an exact place (eg:outside of XY tubestation) and a time & date...whoever can make it, could convene...

I’m also for London this weekend...

Date online form submitted: 18/12/18
Biometrics and UKVCAS appointment in Croydon: 31/12/18 at 9am. The entire process took about 15minutes.
Email confirming grant of ILR received the same day at 3PM.
Delivery of BRP:still waiting

I've uploaded all documents prior to the appointment date and I did not purchase the extra document checking service.
Hi Cherrim
Congrats! Did you uploaded your documents in separate categories or just in Mandatory and Others? Im struggling to upload the documents to correct categories.

Hi Cja

I am waiting since 8th December. Tried everything 3 times escalation calls, email to MP and complaint email but no news so far. Yesterday received a generic email saying that your application is under consideration and and we expect to make a decision within 6 months of the date of your application, which is our service standard" which doesn't make sense at all after one month. I haven't received any email from HO asking for any further information. Not sure what is going on. Mine was very simple and straight forward application: ILR through 5 year tier 2 (general) route Set(0). Previous to that i was on Post study work visa. Have got two master's degrees from UK. Every time calling customer service is useless.
Hi guys, After my initial application on 6th December, I have escalated it 4 times. I have escalated it again on Friday and received the generic email about 6 months wait again on Monday. So called back immediately about it. The advisor mentioned the Super Priority people should not receive it. And she escalated with further details again. I also contacted my local MP and she called them today and will chase them again on Thursday. So just now received another email from the UKVI contact centre email.

“Thank you for contacting UKVI and sorry for delay in reply.

If we cannot decide the application within the 24- hour service standard for reasons outside the control of the customer the application will be decided as quickly as possible and the SPV element of the fee refunded to the customer. We are currently reviewing decisions made since the start of the UKVCAS transition period to identify cases where we have not delivered a decision within the SPV service standard. We aim to complete this exercise by January 2019.


Hopefully this will help. I am planning to chase them again on Thursday from my end. Even my company’s immigration adviser is chasing from his end. This is such a pain, as need to travel back home.

For a while it seemed like they were clearing out the backlogs but now it seems to have slowed down again.
Newer applications are being processed within 24 hours - now I think I should have waited till Jan.


Exactly what I’ve been thinking...cursing myself for applying it in November end 😫...but how on earth, can that become a disqualification 🧐

Had a bit of hope when few who applied in Nov/early Dec started to get their outcomes...but now it seems like they have kept the rest to the 6-month pile 😒

Even mailing MPs has not proved useful for many - likely coz MPs haven’t received the whole picture that it’s not a single case but loads of cases not going according to T&Cs of the service....

How about those affected in this transition period (when HO introduced the new front desk) - 24th Nov to 10th Dec - super Priority applicants join hands and send a mass petition

1) to the Home Secretary ? Or to the Leader of Opposition ?? Or,

2) to the Press (eg: BBC)- but not sure if FT report made much impact.

All pls reply (could discuss with ur solicitors too) and let’s go forwards accordingly...what do u think ?

NB: mine is a straight forward 5 yr Set(O) case and I have a new job to change to...delay in this would jeopardise my new job 😩...I’m sure many would have such pressing issues to sort...
Hi, so what happened with you, Did it all go well? I applied on the 27th of December and still nothing! Its so annoying
