got a call from HO but cudn't take it as i was in a meeting. They left a voicemail saying they will call again.
I called back and was told that they will call/email.

Not sure if it is to do with further request for more info or just to let me know that it has been approved... due to 2 escalations in the space of 2 days....

If anything i am more anxious now and unable to focus on any work.....

Quick update.

I attended the appointment on the 24th of November. I have been in contact with my solicitor and they have not heard anything at all. I called my solicitor on Monday and they said they will email directly the case work team in charge of my application. I chased them up again yesterday and she sent another email which she got replied a few minutes later
" They have now confirmed that your documents and decision letter have been sent out for delivery and should be with us soon.
We have requested a tracking number and are awaiting the same.
We will let you know once we have been able to track the documents or when the documents have arrived at our office."

However I emailed DX and they said they dont have any bookings for my solicitor's address/name. Do they use other couriers besides DX ? I can't think of the HO providing false information about my documents already being sent out. Also shouldnt have they said it was granted and the documents are on their way. Their reply makes me think it could be a rejection letter?

Could you please share the caseworkers email address here ? my appointment was on 1st of December. Called them last Monday and the person on the phone said he was going to refer my case and I was going to hear something back.
Nothing untill this morning. I called again and the woman on the phone said no one has referred my case before today! what a shambles!

After how many days one should realistically call and chase the application? I mean the normal standard would be a 24 hr turnaround.

The ILR Journey

• ILR Set M Form started in late October

Why have you applied for ILR under the UK immigration rules if you are on the EEA Route as the partner of an EU citizen?? Set M is not the correct form.
Perhaps I should clear that one up. She WAS (and still is) an EU national, but now a British citizen settled in the UK

Decision letters come through 2nd class mail. BRPs mostly come through DX. They don't have to be at the same time. DX may say no in the morning but then yes in the afternoon. It took 3 days in my case for it to be updated on DX system after approval email i.e. when I got confirmation from DX call center after several attempts, the parcel actually was on the way to my door - I received it just few minutes after confirmation :)

Having said that, no possibility is possible until you see it.

In the past the BRP has also been delivered to me in Royal Mail post. So I am not sure if BRP by DX is a must or they might have changed the system to DX only although some of posts in other forums do suggest that they received BRP in post (not DX).

Some members recently got it through Royal Mail as well. But mostly through DX.

Why have you applied for ILR under the UK immigration rules if you are on the EEA Route as the partner of an EU citizen?? Set M is not the correct form.

You cannot apply for ILR on form Set M under the UK immigration rules if you hold an eea residence card for the last 5 years. You need to have held a spouse settlement visa for 5 years (2 x 2.5 years visas) to qualify for ILR on Set M. If you don't hold this visa, your application will likely be refused and you will lose your fee paid.

If you hold an EEA RC for the last 5 years, you should have applied for PR on the eea4 form, which costs £65.

Who advised you to use Set M??
Char (CR001 not Casa)
In life you cannot press the Backspace button!!
Please DO NOT send me a PM for immigration advice. I reserve the right to ignore the PM and not respond.

Thanks.

[/quote]Yes quite a few have applied after 22 November, that is attending the Biometrics date at UKVCAS centre, and got ILR from Tier 2. They are on this forum and other forums also. At the same time quite a few are still awaiting decision. And few have got email approval but awaiting BRP and decision letter.

Hi - I applied for ILR via tier2 general 5 year route on Nov 26th at croydon super priority and no decision yet. However I called the UKVI helpline few times and escalated my case. Today I received a call from UKVI and the lady said that unfortunately my application is still not assigned to a case worker and it might take up to six months. She asked me to raise a complaint and ask for the refund, I couldn’t complete the conversation as there was bad network coverage and call dropped off. I did call back but they said they can’t help and need to wait until they contact me again. The whole experience has been horrible and now I’m not sure what to do next. Has anyone received call from UKVI/HO with a similar message ?

My biometric submission date was on 26. I have not seen any in the forum got approval applied on or after this date for ILR through Tier2 General.
