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?

Hi

So I applied as a spouse of a British Citizen. When you book your appointment there is an option on the ukvcas website to upload documents. I had uploaded in pdf format and also paid £35 for them to pre check it’s all uploaded in the correct format.
Mandatory docs: my passport, husbands British passport, signed family declaration form, husbands naturalisation certificate.

optional documents: life in uk test letter, degree certificate, utility bills letters, bank statements and payslips for both husband and I, mortgage statements for last year, council tax bill, joint account statements too for last year and employee letters for both of us.

Just an update. I just checked my junk mail and found an email sent by home office yesterday that we have sent you a letter to register your biomentrics to the nearest post office.if i had register my biometrics i should ignore this email. Strange thing is, i havent received any such letter and my appointment is on monday. I hope it gets sorted asap
I received this same email yesterday and got really scared. My appointment as I mentioned was this morning so hope all is ok. I assumed it is a generic email.

U don’t need to tell them they can already see it. The lady asked me if there was anything I had forgotten to upload and have brought with me today so she can upload. But I double checked everything and all docs were uploaded.

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
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.

I think you are absolutely right. It looks like it was refused because I entered on EEA partner, not a uk settled partner (EU vs UK immigration law)

The exact reason is as follows

For the reason outlined above, your application for indefinite leave to remain as the spouse of a person present and settled in the uk is refused asn you have failed to meet the requirements of the immigration rules under Paragraph D-ILRP.1.3 with Reference to R-ILRP1.1 with reference to E-ILRP.1.2 and E-ILRP.1.3(1) and E-LTRP.2.1 to 2.2 of appendix FM

Interpreting those clauses and subclauses leads me down the road of IT should be refused if you didnt start with the settled partner or marriage visa.

What is the basis of your complaint?? You applied for something you didn't qualify for.

The general text in the letter about leaving the UK is generic.

Sorry but I don't get it. If your application was rightly refused, why are you making a complaint or want to send an appeal notification?

What is the basis of your complaint?? You applied for something you didn't qualify for.
-> Refusal letter dated over a month ago turns up today saying you must leave the country which nullifys the grace period to try to voluntarily leave and put you straight into being picked up and deported as per the immigration bail laws.
-> 28 day leeway from when the EEA National had expired was not applied and then deemed overstay which cascaded into furthur requirements not being met
-> the lack of clarity in the appendix FM (im not a lawyer) that seems to infer that the only way you can settle as partner of a british settled citizen is to have come on the relevant visa, not satisfy the 60 month requirement no matter what Visa it is (Partner of a EEA national doesnt cut it)
-> Finally absolute zero communication along in the whole process along with the wizard as per my accurate responses said to use SET M not EEA PR.

There is more in the list if that helps...

Add absolute lack of the ability to be able to book the super premium service on the old system before the cutover on the 2nd of November to the new system. Many people tried for many weeks to make an appointment and pay the fee across the whole country to be told there are no appointments for 45 days.

Do you think its reasonable to post a letter dated from the 16th of December on the 17th of January to be received today with a refusal and demand to leave now?

I understand that you are angry about the situation especially because you paid over £1000 instead of just £65 but none of the reasons is a valid ground for appeal.

First of all, you are not required to leave the country (even if the letter tells you - that is a generic letter everyone with a refused SET M application and expired leave will receive). Receiving that letter after a month is also not a valid reason for an appeal. The complaint team may (partially) uphold your complaint for this reason but what will you get other than an apology?

Secondly, it was entirely your own fault to submit a wrong and late application. No appointment was available? Right, but you could post the application.

Thirdly, lack of clarity in the Immigration Rules is not a ground for appeal. You could seek assistance (free).

Again, you are not required to leave the country. Apply again by submitting the right application. Expired EEA family member residence card is also not a problem. You didn't need it in the first place. You just got it to prove your right to work etc.

Hey Bibi2, I appreciate your response and take it all onboard. Not angry so much, more the fact i have a letter here saying theres a immigration bail on me and this went from trying to do the right thing to you must leave now on a month old letter. I dont believe it was entirely my fault in regards to the submission as the postal application of Set M was not an option for myself under the guise that I could travel and work whilst it was being processed. Little did I know on the 12th of November that it would be so that if you left the UK then your application would be withdrawn. If that was known on the 11th, I would of indeed posted the application and then not travel nor make work and personal plans over the christmas.

So let it be known... On Set M, to settle with a partner for ILR, is it a fact that you have to have entered on a spousal or partner visa, done your 5/10 years then apply? Or is it open to anybody who has done 5 years on a visa who is a partner of a British National? ie there is a valid entry requirement required that means you have to enter on a spousal or british partner visa?

Already started the EEA (PR) and the stress levels have definitely dropped. I do love the fact my refusal is a clause with 4 related sub clauses and one of those sub clauses has 2 more sub sub clauses, and is apparently generic, but google couldnt find that exact phrase

What a time to be alive.

To qualify for ILR on Set M, the immigration rules are clear that you must have held the relevant spouse Settlment visa for 60 months, ie spouse of BC or ILR holder and must have entered the UK in this category visa.

No other visa route can use SET M even if their partner becomes British during that qualifying time.

You can use SET M only if you have a residence permit as a spouse of a settled person or British citizen. In other words, if your previous application was FLR M, this time you use SET M.

It seems you don't have a residence permit as a spouse of settled person or British citizen. Instead, you have a residence document (not permit - as that is just a proof of a right to stay and not a permission to stay) as a family member of an EEA citizen. If yes, they were 100% right to refuse your SET M application. People like you can only settle in the UK by applying for a document confirming the right of permanent residence (paying £65), or submit SET LR application (over £2000).

Guys, I cannot thank you enough for the feedback. You see the entry point part is the issue I was not clear on, nor was it clear on the wizard. I am more then happy to put my hand up in fault, it is clear that part was the deal breaker.

Since I was not eligible for Set M (and paid dearly in money stress and time) it is presumed that I will not get deported as per the standard response for a refusal to Set M as I am still partner of a EU national?

Waking up to an immigration bail notice isnt an experience I would recommend for all of us trying to legitimately work and life in this country.

Its time to fill the EEA PR out (85 pages in paper + supporting documents) apply and party like it was 2013.

So let it be known... On Set M, to settle with a partner for ILR, is it a fact that you have to have entered on a spousal or partner visa, done your 5/10 years then apply? Or is it open to anybody who has done 5 years on a visa who is a partner of a British National? ie there is a valid entry requirement required that means you have to enter on a spousal or british partner visa?
To qualify for ILR on Set M, the immigration rules are clear that you must have held the relevant spouse Settlment visa for 60 months, ie spouse of BC or ILR holder and must have entered the UK in this category visa.

No other visa route can use SET M even if their partner becomes British during that qualifying time.
Guys, I cannot thank you enough for the feedback. You see the entry point part is the issue I was not clear on, nor was it clear on the wizard. I am more then happy to put my hand up in fault, it is clear that part was the deal breaker.

Since I was not eligible for Set M (and paid dearly in money stress and time) it is presumed that I will not get deported as per the standard response for a refusal to Set M as I am still partner of a EU national?

Waking up to an immigration bail notice isnt an experience I would recommend for all of us trying to legitimately work and life in this country.

Its time to fill the EEA PR out (85 pages in paper + supporting documents) apply and party like it was 2013.

Did your approval email come from a generic home office email address? I can find my caseworker name on my approval letter as well, so maybe you can read the letter again and try to find the name? Then usually the email address is FIRSTNAME.SURNAME@homeoffice.gov.uk
Hi, it was from generic email address and same on the approval letter. No case worker name so have replied back to the email address the approvel email came from
Hi Mumbai2003,

I was wondering if you have received your BRP as I'm in a similar position. I received my ILR approval on 3rd January 2019 using the UKVCAS super priority service (Mark Lane - London) and even though decision was made within 24 hours, the BRP has yet to arrive! I've tried contacting them through various avenues (direct email, call, reporting the issue on the website given etc..) and they keep telling me there's a technical issue with the production of BRPs and will give me an update when the issue has been resolved, but can't tell me when!! I'm seeing posts of people receiving BRPs just a few days after the approval email/letter so I was wondering if it's a location specific issue.

Also apologies if this is not the right place to post this question as it's not really related to the UKVCAS priority service.
Hi Rofriend,

Just a thought after posting few replies on this forum and going though the posts from Link, have you tried calling DX up and see whether they have got it or not

Worth a shot, you can call them up from 08:00 tomorrow or if within London then head down to their depot with ID proof as why butI get a feeling in my case they may well have it or misplaced it
Thanks for your suggestion Mumbai2003. I have checked with DX and, sad as it is, they have nothing for me.Tbf HO has actually told me that there’s a problem with the production of BRPs so I think the problem is with them unfortunately. My MP has sent them an enquiry about this so just waiting for them to get back to him. Fingers crossed.

Sorry for making these posts longer than that already are. Please let me know if this is not the right place for these sort of discussions.
