What’s annoying is that they have total disregard for ‘first come, first serve’ at all....No offence to all who have got their outcomes- which is brilliant really !!!...it seems like applying in Jan was much much better and faster than Nov...but we can’t go back, can we?
just wondering if all the waiters fm Nov and Dec had Visa rejections before - which could technically be classified as ‘bad’ immigration history, esp with newly trained HO staff...I had 3 rejections in a row on my first ever application for a UK Visa for very silly reasons, which were then sorted...my worry is that- has this history prompted my application to be thrown into the 6-month pile ???...mistaking it as a complicated one
If all the waiters have such issues (as a common factor), this could be the answer for the delay....and the dilemma that some are getting it pretty quickly and some are just waiting for ages...
Which means that wasn’t a criterion fir the delay...so let’s waaait then.
Finally Folks...Finally !!!
Whilst on my lunch break an hr back, got an email from Tier 2/5 Operations team @HO stating that:
My ILR application has been granted and that the approval letter and BRP shall follow.
Application via 5 yr Tier -2 route for ILR - Set (O)
Biometrics submitted : 24th NOVEMBER 2018.
Four escalations via phone and received generic replies- third of which was from the Permanent Migration team stating that it’s under consideration and to may take upto 6 months.
Then, as per suggestions in this thread- sent a mail to my MP 2 wks back - to which I got a reply the very next day- that his team was in touch with the DG @ HO.
Still nothing...sent a mail to the complaints e-mail yesterday....But, I presume it was my MP’s response that nailed it.
I know that a heavy rock is off my shoulders, Thank Goodness...but since it’s been there since 8 weeks- day n night, honestly I’m still feeling it...right now my only concern is for those who had been waiting with me since Nov and early Dec- of the likes of Timothy, Maadihali etc...I’m sure its in the pipeline folks.
NB: had mixed feelings to read the last line of the mail- ‘thanks for using our super priority service’.
My advice to those waiting:
- Get your MP involved ASAP.
- Send a mail to the complaints e-mail.
-Wait for BRP
-Can anybody advise how long should one wait before u can apply for the passport ?
Thanks to all who kept me going so far.
Especially, the moderators...tnx
