Hi Everyone,

I have been learning from this forum since I started preparation of ILR (Tier 2 5 years General route) and used UKVCAS Super Priority Service

Just to provide some additional information that might help the others:

I submitted in Cardiff on15th March at 11:00am and got email today at 10:00 that my and my partner's ILR have been granted. It is a little surprise that HO works on Saturday.

Hi there. Yes- same situation.
SET(M) Application submitted: 4 March
Biometrics in Cardiff: 12 March, 9am
Exceptionally complex issues email: 12 March, 2pm

I’m guessing the complexity stems from the fact that my partner is self-employed and we had loads of documents to submit as evidence. I know that compared to so many on here, I’m in the early days of waiting. I’ve scrolled through pages and pages on here and I haven’t seen anyone post a positive outcome after receiving the complex issues email. But I’m hoping that once they received their BRP, they just didn’t leave a post (and that they aren’t still out there in limbo).
How about you?
Thanks for sharing this. I have submitted set(o) application based on tier 2 visa at Cardiff on11 March I have seen other cases pending that are submitted at Cardiff as well.
Just an update.
Yesterday, I responded to the complex issues email asking if there was anything I could do to facilitate the processing of my application and I received this response today (Saturday 16 March):

I apologise for the ongoing delay with processing your application.
Once we have completed your case, we will be in contact again.
We will also review if the SPV fee you paid is still applicable.

To the people who have applied through the Croydon centre- how long did the whole process take at Croydon? Did you have to queue outside?

You case is complicated because you submitted an out of time second application following a refusal of flr m.

You should have appealed as obie had advised.

The reply was from the same UKVISETM@homeoffice.gov.uk address as the exceptionally complex issues email, however the email signature was different. The original complex issues email had a caseworker’s name attached, but this latest reply did not and the format of the email signature was slightly different. It wasn’t an auto response.

Hello people,

I was following this topic for a while and I stopped for a bit because I just want to stop thinking and worrying about the visa application and get on with my life as usual. Now I finally heard some news on my case so I'd like to share my experiance.

My timeline is as this:

- T2 to ILR applied via Super Prority Service on 27 Nov 2018
- Biometric enrollment 5 Dec 2018
- Called numerous time to the UKVI switch board in the next two month - pretty useless
- Contact my local MP after Christmas, and he wrote two letters to HO - received standard reply letter
- My case worker sent me an standard email saying my case has extremely complex issue after the MP sent the first letter. She refused to explain in details.
- At the begining of February, two HO officer came to my company and did an inspection, interviewed me and the contact person for the sponsor license, the process was about 2-3 hours.
- Two weeks ago, the inspection result came out positive.
- Then I emailed my case worker again asking the progress, she never replied.
- Today I received a refund for the Super Prority Service element GBP 610, but I still haven't hear anything yet. I'm assuming a decision has been made and they approved my application, since on the super priority service refund policy, it says if the visa is refused then this fee is not refundable. Fingers crossed!

My company had never received an inspection since they had the sponsor license..so maybe that's where the complex issue is. Hopefully a decision letter and the card is on it's way..
I hope everybody receive their results soon. Good things will happen eventually :)


Hi Momozz

Thank you for sharing, surely this is a positive sign.

If you don't mind, could you please share your experience with HO officers visit. What sort of questions were asked in interview.

Sending good wishes your way

Thank you in advance
Hi Mitsu

They asked general questions like my immigration history, my role, how much I earn, when was the last payrise, what I do in the company on daily basis, and I was asked to show evidence.

The interview with my sponsor is longer, they asked about my role as well, and basically checking if my employer is complying with the sponsor guidance, updating records etc. They also checked where I sit in the office and briefly met my colleagues in my department. I hope this helps..

I am in same boat like you, I have submitted my application on 9th of Feb still waiting for decision, Me and my wife both are self-employed. I have done couple of escalations thorough MP and direct home office but they saying same thing, it can take up to 6 months and you can apply for refund. Not really helpful.

Congrats @RebeelT on being granted your ILR in such a quick time after submitting your bio-metrics.

I did submit my application this past Sat. 16th March @12 noon at the London premier lounge under Tier 2 5 year route and am currently awaiting to hear from Home office. i believe HO will have reviewed your application between the date of online submission and the date you attend the UK-VAS appointment for the bio-metrics.

I will share my timeline and experience hopefully anytime this week. As for now, i will keep my fingers crossed for an email from HO.

Hi Bamboo10,

I uploaded all documents yesterday onto UKVCAS website, on the appointment day as you already aware the UKVCAS review the uploaded documents and forward it to the home office and submit the final application.

When my Husband applied for SET-LR in December, he did not get any email notification, but got directly the decision letter in a week time. I hope if the email is not been sent yet, you will get the decision letter and BRP in the post.

Good Luck and best wishes.

Hey guys

I finally got my approval via email today. They said a formal letter and the BRP will be sent in the post within 10 working days.

Full timeline:
Application: Extension to Tier 2 (General) Visa - Change of Employer
Application made: 13/02
Appointment at Croydon/Biometrics Submitted: 16/02 12.00pm

1st call to Home Office: 22/2 - hung up on me
Lawyer's call to Home Office: 25/2 - told that a decision would be made in 3-5 days
Official Letter of Complaint: 1/3 - no response to this
Letter before Action: 7/3
Follow-up call to Home Office: 18/3 11am
Home Office email response acknowledging Letter before Action: 18/3 1.11pm stating:
'We aim to complete all Super Priority Applications (SPV) within the 24-hour service standard. However, where we are not able to do this we will complete the application as quickly as possible.

Unfortunately we have experienced some technical difficulties with the new UK Visas and Citizenship Application Service which has resulted in some delays.

Where delays in making the decision are not the fault of the customer we will refund the SPV fee.

I can confirm that your client’s application is now with a case worker and a decision will be made shortly.'

Email approval received: 18/3 2.44pm

I can only advise everyone to keep escalating issues as much as they can, and good luck to everyone still waiting.

I called the helpline (03001232241) to get an update and potentially escalate my application. But the lady on the phone said she does not have access to the case worker system and cant do anything. She mentioned that all you can do is wait. please note that I have received complex issues letter after my super-priority appointment last week.

Wondering which number do you all use for SET(O) escalations/update?
I also sent an email to the case worker to get an update, but have not heard from him/her as well.

Hi all... been silent for long, sorry...I did apply for ILR (post 5yrs via Tier-2 Visa) in Nov 2018 end and got the BRP with ILR only in Jan end (after repeated escalations and after my MP chipping in)...and got my £610/- refund just last week....thanks again to the moderator and many members who were helping and guiding all along...and help keep cool despite the hard wait..hope this would soothe at least some, waiting for hrs/days/wks.

I’ve got a query please:
1) I need to apply for my wife for extension of her PBS dependant Tier-2 Visa (since not been the in UK for 5 yrs as of yet) and for ILR status for my kids (they are apparently eligible).

a) Wondering who would be the primary applicant and would I be able to apply for them at once, at all ?

b) what would be the forms, pls ?

Many thanks for your help/guidance...many thanks 💐👍☺️

NB: Didn’t want to risk £15,000 fee (as premium), so applied for myself alone and now applying for the rest...

Can you please DESIST from posting application questions in this topic as you have already been asked in your post split and moved to the ILR sub forum.

This topic is ONLY for experiences with UKKCVAS super priority service and NOT application questions!!!

Dependent Tier-1 ILR Application-SET-O online when I am British Citizen Already-New UKVCAS

Hi All,

I thought I will share my experience recently for Dependent ILR Application for my wife and Daughter(9 yrs Old) @ UKVCAS center Birmingham.

Dependents ILR Application(SET-O online form) Date- Saturday -March-19 ( Extra 100 Pounds charge for each Dependent by Sopra Steria)
My Status when Dependent Applied for ILR- British Citizen ( my ILR was done in 2016 and Citizenship in 2017).

We went in Birmingham Sopra Steria Building near Birmingham International- walk-able distance form Train Station.

Appointment time= 12 pm (Saturday Appointment)

we reached early by 11 am.

Process at Sopra Steria Office:

1- They will check your current passport & Appointment booking letter.
2- then you will be issued token number - its written on your appointment Booking Page itself.
3- The your Token will be called for Adult Bio-metric first and then Child biometric will be done separately.
4- then there will be slight break of 10-15 min and you will be called at counter for verification of your uploaded documents.
5- Please note that Officers at Sopra Steria are not Home Office Case workers so their Job is to just make sure all Mandatory documents are any other supporting document that you wish to submit to Home Office are correctly uploaded .if all documents uploaded correctly ( use good scanner- I used Canon Pixma ) they will not have any issues.
6- Officer then informs you that your application is submitted with whatever documents you uploaded and decision will be made based on service you paid.we paid Super priority which is 24 hrs( working hours) decision time.
7- there is no acknowledgement that you will receive at this point but verbally you will be told that your application is submitted--this was bit strange but then we went with that assurance .we reached sopra steria office at 11 am and all process was done by 12:05 pm so we were very happy with service .this is far better than PSC's.

Now Decision making part-
1- as we were informed at point -7 above that decision will be made in 24 working hours , i did not even check our email until Monday 12 noon as I thought it wont be in by end of Day Monday or even Tuesday for that matter but you know what we were surprised that email was sent my home office that Application is success by 11 am on Monday that's hardly 3-4 working hours which is great.

2- As mentioned in Home Office email they said BRP card will follow and we received BRP cards by Wednesday in our letter box.

all sorted and big Monkey off the back as we were all waiting for this ILR application to complete soon....super service by Sopra Steria and Home Office .

Now here you go with Document List that I uploaded for this Successful ILR Application:

Online Documents Uploaded on Sopra Steria Site:

1- Mandatory Documents for Wife:-

a- Consent-part-1 signed by her & Consent-Part-2 signed by me as our Water Bills have both names.(scan)

b- Life in UK Test Cert- she passed this back in 2015 but it's valid for Lifetime (scan)

c- English Language Test Certificate (scan)

d- current Indian passport First & Last Page (scan)

e- current BRP Card (Scan front & back of card)

f- Wife's Home Office letter mentioning current Live to remain ( scan) - This may not be required as BRP card is more or less same thing but I just di that.

g- Marriage Certificate

h- My British Passport Front page- (scan)- again this may not be required....but I did

2- Supporting Documents for Wife:- ( residence & Cohabitation in UK)

a- Utility Bills ( water bills for each yr 2015, 2016 , 2017, 2018 & 2019) - this was Residence Proof as well as Co-habitation proof as our names on this bills.
b- for 2014 yr I submitted her Driving license part-1 DVLA Letter when she applied for her learning License.

c- For Co-habitation( normally required for last 3 yrs only to prove relation ship is husband wife) I provided letting agency's letter mentioning that we have ben living in apartment together since we started letting agreement form 2015.This and point a & b above were enough I think to prove that my wife is living with me and she is living in UK for last 5 yrs continuous period.

d- Previous Passport -Immigration Stamps when traveled form UK.I only scanned the passport stamps when she left or arrived in UK and not entired passport pages.That would be killer for home Office case worker.

3- Supporting Documents for Wife:- ( Sponsor or Finance)- this might not be required but again I did

a- As I am IT Contractor with my own company , I provided Dividends , Paysilps for last 12 months.
b- Accountant Letter mentioned my company is in good financial health and confirming Dividends an Payslips reference for last 12 months
c- My Personal bank Statement for last 12 months mentioning Dividends & Salary paid form my company.


For Daughter -it was easy############all scans remember

1- Her BRP Card
2- Her Birth Certificate
3- her Current Passport
4- her previous Passport which was expired but had Immigration history for last 5 yrs....again only related pages not entire passport pages
5- address proof for daughter was taken as hard and soft copies but not uploaded as it's not at all required .....but just in case



Note- I had taken all Originals with me but I think they only need Originals if your scanner is not good or uploaded document is not clear.

All the best guys...........I am sure you will love new service..............

I called the helpline (03001232241) to get an update and potentially escalate my application. But the lady on the phone said she does not have access to the case worker system and cant do anything. She mentioned that all you can do is wait. please note that I have received complex issues letter after my super-priority appointment last week.

Wondering which number do you all use for SET(O) escalations/update?
I also sent an email to the case worker to get an update, but have not heard from him/her as well.

Hi all... been silent for long, sorry...I did apply for ILR (post 5yrs via Tier-2 Visa) in Nov 2018 end and got the BRP with ILR only in Jan end (after repeated escalations and after my MP chipping in)...and got my £610/- refund just last week....thanks again to the moderator and many members who were helping and guiding all along...and help keep cool despite the hard wait..hope this would soothe at least some, waiting for hrs/days/wks.

I’ve got a query please:
1) I need to apply for my wife for extension of her PBS dependant Tier-2 Visa (since not been the in UK for 5 yrs as of yet) and for ILR status for my kids (they are apparently eligible).

a) Wondering who would be the primary applicant and would I be able to apply for them at once, at all ?

b) what would be the forms, pls ?

Many thanks for your help/guidance...many thanks 💐👍☺️

NB: Didn’t want to risk £15,000 fee (as premium), so applied for myself alone and now applying for the rest...
Can you please DESIST from posting application questions in this topic as you have already been asked in your post split and moved to the ILR sub forum.

This topic is ONLY for experiences with UKKCVAS super priority service and NOT application questions!!!

Hi all,

I have applied for ILR (Tier 2 general 5 year route). Gave my bio metrics on 25 Feb 2019 @ cardiff library.
Same day received Exceptionally complex issues letter :!:
It is very frustrating waiting for something which is life changing. Also, I got other things linked to this decision.
I am feeling little relaxed and calm reading this forum thinking that I am not alone in this situation.

Just wondering, anyone who received the exceptionally complex issues letter got the decision ?

Also, I read about escalations? do they really work? should i have to start making phone calls?

Thanks,
Kiran

I had my biometrics appointment at Croydon on Saturday 16th March and haven't received any emails yesterday or today so far. Any idea who I can call/email to see what's happening?

Switching from a Tier 2 to a Family Visa (spouse of British Citizen) if that makes any difference.
