I can finally share an update and good news from my end!

I got my approval letter and BRP card; both in the mail yesterday. Got a call from my lawyer at around 1230 saying he has received a letter confirming that my application has been granted and then I got another call from him around 1700 saying he has also just received my card via courier.

Here's my timeline:

Application type: Set O Tier 2G to ILR
Online application submitted: 19/11/18
Biometrics appointment: 28/11/18 at Beford Point, Croydon
Raised 5 'escalations' by calling the UKVI helpdesk but as mentioned previously, that literally does nothing in terms of actually escalating or pushing for an update as the relevant people never get notified
Wrote to my MP and the complaints team on 17/01/19 but have not received a response till date
Approval letter and BRP card both received on 25/01/19
Date on approval letter/BRP card validity start date: 23/01/19

Congratulations nice111,could you please list your support documents and which category did you put them?
And also
Did you upload your document page separately then you put them on one file or you combined them on one file
For example you upload all pay slips sperately one by one and put me under same file or you combined all the pay slips on one file?
Have you submit consent form for home office to check your support documents?
.
Hi Mizer, Thanks

List of Documents

1. My Wife's current and old passports.
2. BRP card.
3. My Bitish passport.
4. My last 12 months Pay slips. (Category B)
5. My bank statements showing 12 monthly salaries.
6. My Employer's letters and contract.
7. English B1 Trinity Certificate.
8. Life in the UK.
9. Declaration.
10. Cohabitation: Covering last 2.5 vears.
Bank statements, Voter registration card, Driving license, Credit card
statements, TV Licenses, Electricity letters, Optician's letters,
Broadband's letters.

Additional Documents
11. My P60.
12. Original marriage certificate.
13. Mortgage Statements & Letter
14. Children's British passports and birth certificates.

In my opinion docs upload categories are not that important. Put documents into the most relevant tabs and rest in others. I put most of them in others and rest according to the categories which seemed most relevant to me.

I scanned all bank statements in one file and all payslips in one, every category in each file (150 to 200 DPI).

I didn't submit any consent form as it was not asked for in the document list. Only provide documents which are listed in documents checklist (you will get it once application is submitted).

Thanks to immigrationboards.com. Brilliant forum. I was following this post for a while and others experiences (since new online system) really helped me prepare my application.

1. ILR Application, Set (o) Tier 2 Applicant + dependent Spouse + child
2. Submitted my online application on 15 JAN 2019 in Super Priority category
3. Attended Biometrics at Belfast UKVCAS on 24th JAN 2019. Sopra Steria experice was really great. Staff was polite and helpful. We reached 45mins early and they started the biometrics immediately. Before the appointment time, we were finished with the biometrics. It was quick. However, my P60 attachement was not showing successfuly uploaded on the Surinder Singh route staff computer. Since it was not mandetory, I logged into my sopra steria account on phone and deleted it. Keep all scans on your phone so in this kind of situations you can upload it by yourself.
4. Did not hear anything from Home Office on 24th & 25th JAN. No email, No phone call.
5. Today on 26th JAN 2019 received Letter from Home Office (by RoyalMail Special Delivery by 1pm) mentioning BRPs will be delivered within 7 days by Courier. No explicit mention of ILR GRANTED or APPROVED etc.

Such a big relief and time to celebrate with family & freinds.

Let me know if someone needs more information on application, documents etc.

I doubt that anyone would be able to tell you for sure.

Why would you want to use 2 different email addresses and confuse them as well as yourself?

My suggestion is use one email and keep it simple if you dont have any important reason to do otherwise. The way this new system is going atm is completely unpredictable so dont make things difficult.

I dunno why someone would use two different email addresses but if that has already happened, you will be fine as Home Office will not see the email address you have used on UKVCAS. I had a client 2 weeks ago who wanted to use his own debit card so after filling the application form, he completed the payment section using his own email address. Nothing happened other than that he had to forward the confirmation emails (for registration) to me.

Hi Mizer. Thanks for your reply.
This wasn't my question btw.

My question is does she need to prove 3 years residency or 5 years?

She was out of country from Jan 2016 to March 16 so if 3 years apply than we need to wait till March 2019.

She was in country back in Jan 2014 so if 5 years apply than we can apply now.

Dont want to jeopardise anything therefore wanted to have advice on it.

Please desist from asking naturalisation application questions in this topic. You already have a topic in the British citizenship sub forum where you have been receiving advice!!!

Hello All,

I am applying for my wife's ILR (Tier 2 Dependent route). Its great to see all the replies about the new UKVCAS service. I have a few questions that I would like to get answers for and I'm hoping there have been a similar situation in the past:

1. As a proof of cohabitation I have got my current tenancy agreement, however, my wife is added as "Permitted Occupant" on that agreement and I am the tenant. Is that going to create any issues if I attach this tenancy agreement to my list of documents?
2. I have uploaded all the pages of my wife's current passport. She has two old cancelled passports as well. I am planning to upload those as well. Do I need to scan all the pages of those and upload? Also, will this go in the "Other" category on Sopra Steria?
3. What is the "Declaration" document that we need to upload to the list of documents? Is that the first page of the consent form?

Kindly let me know guys.

Thanks.

Hi everyone,

I have already booked an appointment for next week for my ilr application from 5 years tier2 route. when I checked the HMRC personal tax account I found that during the year 2017-2018 there was an issue with my tax payment from my previous employer, and it shows that I owe around £1000. HMRC already send me the letter about the money I owed and I escalate that to my current employer accountant. The accountant said that it will be fixed automatically and it will be deducted from my salary accordingly and I leave it. But I am concerned if this will make any problem with my application. Could anyone please give me some advise. Thanks a lot
