Hello Everyone
I got my £610 refunded today 😊

The BRP is on its way. Just checked the tracker.

For those who are waiting!!!! How can i say that how i truly understand the pain and misery you’re going through right now!! It’s bad and it’s excruciating 😖 but i’m sure there’s an end to this!!
I give all the credit in my case to my MP. She did it for me. No questions about that.

So if you haven’t done so then get your local mp involved now and then wait. Because mine was sorted in 20 WORKING days from the day my mp contacted them initially so you have to have patience for that. But trust me they do take MPs seriously.

I wish you all nothing but the very best!!!!
Salam namaste shalom ni hao :)

Hello everyone.

I live in London and my lawyer is saying that super priority is only available via the premium centre on Mark Lane.

However, I see that some of you have had super priority decisions after submitting your biometrics in Croydon.

I don't know what the options are because the application hasn't been submitted yet. Can someone please clarify for me?

If I can avoid Mark Lane that would be preferable, to save myself £200.

thank you all in advance!
Hi,
There is no such thing as you must go to premium center to give your bio-metrics. You can go to any center in England as far as you can book an appointment. I applied through super priority service ( got my BRP in 3 days) & I booked my appointment at Croydon center because I didn't want to pay additional fees just to submit my bio metrics in London. My appointment was at 12:00 but they took me 11:30 because I went there early.
hope this helps..

Yes, I go email from DX saying Your Home Office item has been despatched with tracking number but so I have not heard anything from homeoffice. No email no letter nor anything about refund.

Can someone remind me of what super priority deadlines are? 24 hours, correct?

I went to Reading UKVAS on 12 January for a 10 am appointment, and estimating 24 hours, I should have had an email by Monday 10 am. However, let's say that Saturday is a non working day for the Home Office, then by 10 am on Tuesday. UKVAS/HO missed this deadline, but by the end of the Tuesday I did get an email with a decision (no BRP yet in the mail as of today). While I know everyone else is facing MUCH worse, I wonder if I should press for some funds refunded given they didn't meet their own deadlines. Any thoughts?

Hi to all,

So not to bring the thread down, but my ILR was refused this morning, I haven't read the last 30 odd pages but it seems everybody else has received theirs.

Brief relapse: Application Set M on the 5 years after being partner of a EEA National (whom during that period I married and reside in London)

They refused my application because I applied on the 11th of November, rather then before the 25th of October. Some may remember that there was no appointment up and down the whole kingdom for 45 days, and I tried every day to apply. Because that classes me as an overstayer in the UK's eyes I am to be deported in 7 days. Which will be interesting as I live with my Wife (Polish who is now a british citizen) in central London, run a Consultency, have two cats and a large liability to Banks and HMRC>

This escalated quickly.

Next steps:

Create a new complaint, appealing that their absolutely hopeless system was the cause of the delay in application, and they should have record of this.
Reapply via the EEA PR route.
Find a way to talk to some department saying that I am preparing my appeal which requires me to leave the UK
Take advice from anybody here.
Prepare Plan B: Sell everything and get His majesty to send me back to some antipodean country.

This went from doing the absolute right thing (tier 2 2011-2014, and then EEA October 2013 to October 2018) to waking up to a screaming wife saying you have to leave the UK in 7 days

To add insult to injury, This letter was dated the 16th of December 2018, and was received today via 2nd class signed for on the 19th of January!

This sounds very scary!

But I think you should have 28 days *after* your current visa expires to make a new application.

Anyway, this is ridiculous. Against basic human right.

In regards to the 28 day window, that was changed a few years back to 14 days and at the discretion of the Caseworker. I will fall just outside of those 14 days.

Plan B currently in progress is applying within the UK to the appeals board, stating all of the above, But I am not sure whether to do the EEA PR now and send my passport away, whilst they can deport me at any time, as the letter they sent was OVER a month late.

This is a complete mess, I have lodged formal complaints in email and via 2241 several times and all that time they already had made a decision on the 16th of December. If I was a sham marriage or coming through this process in more complex way I can understand the cynicism but this is just not reasonable in any way.

They might say 24hrs are actually 3 working days (8hrs each day). But give it a try and put in a complaint and see where it goes. if you do receive a refund let us know please

As a married partner of an EEA national you never become overstayer even if your documents expire. Your right to stay is still there but your document which proves this already existing right will expire. You will also never be deported for not having residence documents.

You applied under the Immigration Rules (not EEA regulation) so they were right to refuse the application. If you wanted to use SET M route (which I don't know why you would want to do that and pay a lot more, especially if your wife is economically active) you should have posted the application.

24 hours is 24 hours not 3 days. If submitted 10am Thursday, decision must be dispatched by 10am Friday. 10am Friday, 10am Monday. 10am Saturday, 10am Tuesday.
However, they don't have to deliver the decision in 24 hours. They must dispatch it. It is not clear yet if this means printed, or give to Royal Mail.

So they won't say it is 3 working days. But they might say the email was just an additional action and a decision was dispatched before that by post. Still you should try. It costs nothing. Let us know.

Hi guys, applied and submitted biometrics for Tier 2 to ILR under set 0 on 27th December. No correspondance till date.

My question was...for month of Decemeber my uncle from oversees sent me 950 pounds as gift money. This appears on my statement for december. Just wondering if I have to give tax on this money or am I just overthinking this ?
Thanks in advance.

Hi guys

I had my ukvcas appointment this morning at Croydon and it went smoothly. Had uploaded all my supporting documents beforehand so the process was very quick. The application was for my ILR and have gone with the super priority option. Have read a few comments on this group and am a bit apprehensive about the wait process :( but can see most posts were in November when this new system was introduced. Is there anyone here that has had their appointment quite recently like a week or 2 ago and have received the decision within 24 hours?
