Hi Guys,



Today HO called the reception, basically where I work there are group of companies with shared reception, so they then emailed the receptionist saying they need job verification from my employer.


So shall I just tell my employer to email them back ?

My company's MD has replied back.

He is off for next couple of weeks, but he replied with official company email and provided his personal contact mobile number in the email saying should you need more information please ring.

Only problem, it was a lady who called the receptionist, but email was from a Lady at HO, my MD mistakenly put "Dear Sir" in his reply, I hope they won't get offended ?

Not offended enough to reject you. Dont worry - people make mistake. If anything she will think your boss is a idiot. Whats more important is the information about that they provided to UKVI.

Also in legal terms "Dear Sirs" was always used regardless of gender. Now people prefer not to use that term.

Hi Guys,


Just to update, today my employer and I received the calls almost same time. Nothing difficult very simple questions, where I work and who I report to, and wether I am related to the employer, which I am not.

Only thing is I had to repeat my marriage dates few times, I was saying something else they were repeating something else. In the end I humbly request them to repeat the dates, so I didn't want to get them wrong.

Finally they said they will pass my details to decision making team, which might contact me with email.

I was under the impression its the actual case work which makes the call ? But it suggest there different teams working on the application ?

There are many case workers who gather information and they recommend whether documents meet the requirements. THEN it all goes to an ECO who either agrees or disagrees with the recommendation i.e. makes the decision. ECO usually spends about 15 mins on a application.

Hi Guys,


I am double minded on something, as I mentioned last week, I paid for priority service but forgot to mention on the application that I actually paid for priority service.

Hence I emailed the HO paying £5.48 for the email service, i got reply back saying we need GWF and other information to escalate your case. Before I could reply few things happened, got an email from HO saying application received and being prepared for a case worker, then my Employer and I got calls today.


So question is should I reply to the email of escalation ? or wait for couple of weeks ?
