Just checked. For applications made in the UK there is no refund :(
I am thinking 6 months or 5 more months now (1 month already gone) coz. 3 escalation did nothing, they won't do a 4th one for me, MP didn't reply either, complaints email ppl haven't replied either, another email address they gave me said don't email on this one.

So basically I have nowhere to go and no one to take this up with. After 6 months, there is a parliamentary ombudsman service or take HO to court. So just have to wait.

There is nothing else I can do really. What a great way to treat legal and skilled immigrants!!!

There is more you can do!

For one, you can write to / tweet the Home Secretary and his shadow!

What have you got to lose?!

Hi all,

Hope everyone had a good Christmas and looking forward to happy new year 2019- advances happy new year wishes all.

I want to share my experience of applying my SET LR application.

1. I submitted online application on 24th December - within 28 days eligible period.

2. Looked around my home to book appointments but nothing available even for 80 miles radius. Then I have to book the premium lounge in London mark lane for today the 27th at 9:30am -£260 extra ok top of £3018.20.

3. I uploaded all documents myself - they will give you a checklist. I scanned in pdf and used online combine & compress tool to combine and reduce the size of each file as the new system allows only size up to 6MB each girl.

4. Went this morning to mark lane London by 8:30 for 9:30 am. People for 7am appointments were waiting outside saying they did not open yet ??? 😁😁😁 was laughing myself thinking they real day begins now

6. Went it by 9am, the reception guy asked to wait. Called me by 10 to go inside the loto wait there to be called giving a number

7. I had orange juice and corrosiant worth
£260 😬🙄. Called inside a cabin room at around 11:45am.

8. A lady asked my appointment letter and passport. She took biometric and photos. Scanned few pages of my new passport. Toook the checklist and was saying wat she can see in her computer which I uploaded myself. Everything was fine as she said.

9. When asked about the results she said we don’t know. Call the number or email. She said it would be may be 2nd of January. She said they are working only half a day today but there were already 20 more people waiting.

10. I hope 🤞 good news will come ASAP. Did my what part so sit and wait 🤞

Will update as days goes on

Any help in regards to SET LR form application please ask me anytime

Thanks and regards

Hi vpruk,

Seems like you applied for SET LR, wondering if you been asked to submit cohabitation documents for last 2 years?

Generally if spouse is settled or British, they they ask to provide cohabitation but my wife is on Tier 2 - Dependent, I am surprised they asked for cohabitation in my SET LR application.

Any thoughts? Do you have dependent spouse who will apply once you get ILR?

Thanks for reply.

So your spouse is also on Tier 1/2 Dependent? I did provide cohabitation documents but can't understand why they need them with my application.

I applied for SET LR on 22-12-18 at Glasgow. I called UKVI and they informed me that, so far the working days are 24, 27 and 28th, and generally the decision is being made in initial 24 hours but its normally announced in on or after 5 working days. So asked me to wait for 31st, 2nd and call them on 3rd Jan.

Hi

My wife is on tier 2 dependant- don’t know why they asked for address correspondence!
Also I didnt mention any other reason to stay.
There were yes or no option - when I selected yes it gave examples like medical illness or some emergency kind of thing. Don’t know whether I am right but I just said no other reason.

Thanks

Hey Vpruk,

Noting but anxiety at the moment.

Dont know either if I did right. but I put yes and wrote about my Job and Mortgage, later they asked to provide evidence to reason to stay and I attached both evidences.

Good luck to you, let us know when you hear anything.

Hi bibi

What centre was your appointment at?
Also do you mean by DX email that there is a parcel for you or DX delivery of the BPR card?

Glad to see some confirmations coming in faster now. In my case I have been waiting since Dec 17th and so far nothing.
My question to you guys, do you think it may take longer for an application of 4 Vs 1? ie: myself and 3 dependents (wife and kids)

Thanks!

Provided you and your dependents have 'similar' applications, there should be no reason for longer processing time! Maybe a marginal increase in processing time (minimal) but not a significant delay.

At any rate, with Super Priority it should all be done and dusted in 24 hours (we wish!!).

Home office is automatically sending refund of super priority fees if they have failed to process within 24 hours. I received a communication dated 24 December by registered post today stating refund of 610 in the card where the original payment was made from in due course.

I did not ask for refund but it has come automatically so I hope all of you whose were delayed also will get the refund also. My sopra appointment was 8.12 and decision was dated 12.12. Thanks.

Good news, thanks for sharing. How did you find out about your decision and when? ie. did they send you a letter, email or just your BRP?

Hola guys,
I am in the same boat at the moment. I attended Sopra Steria on 28.12.18 for my super priority application for ILR LR. I submitted my application online on 22.12.18 and received an automated email from UKVI that they have received my application which is being considered. The strange thing in that email was it mentioned it could take up to six months for the processing of my application although I applied for super priority service but then it said its only an automatically generated email to confirm they have received my application. Has anyone else received a similar email from UKVI on submitting their application online. Please advise.

I will keep following this thread for any updates from other people and will post updates on my case accordingly. I hope every one gets a decision soon and happy new year in advance.
