SET M - Waiting times

Post by fpoptani » Wed Jul 22, 2009 10:58 pm

I am a Brit and applied for ILR on SET M on the 21 June 2009. Does any one know what are the actual waiting times? Any body applied on SET M and heard or not heard from Home office. I believe my papers were in order and we have to kids who also are Brits. The only problem is we spent quite some time abroad mostly together but sometimes on our own. Any responses much appreciated.

That is an unfounded excuse. I think it is plain incompetence.

Deliberate act, of punishing people, or to look tough.

It is also aimed at encouraging people to go for the fast track system, which takes a day to be processed and more costlier.

Funny how abused of the system is not used as an excuse for that one.
Black life matters.

Any news yet?

My husband applied by post for ILR on Form SET(M) in February this year and they processed his application and granted him ILR within five weeks - we were expecting to wait around 3 months which is why we did not plan any holidays in the time after he submitted his application.

His application was very straightforward - we both work full-time, no reliance by either of us in public funds/benefits, no kids or previous marriages and he did not spend any lengthy periods of time outside the UK during his 2 year spouse visa, just had a few 1 and 2 week holidays.

Good luck to all of those waiting!

Hi guys, hope you all keeping well i'm new here but i'm going through the same thing you all are going. I sent my application set(m) on the 12/07/09 and they received it on the 14th of july took the money from my bank on the 15th, i got the acknowledgement on the 18/07/09. It's been a month now. I am so worried, very upset cos i would love to go and see my family and take a break because all this stress is not helpfull at all.
Please keep us informed guys any news pleas do write them down.

Good luck to everyone!

I'm waiting, too.

Application sent: June 22
Confirmation Letter: June 24
Cheque cleared: June 26


I am trying not to panic as from the research I've done it seems three months is the average waiting time.
Just got word this weekend though that our landlord has sold our house and we have to be out by the end of September, hoping to get the visa back by then!

Well they do need the originals so you do not have problems with that. If you send them by special delivery they should receive them next day but how long the case will take it's hard to say as it's in their hands the fact that they are dealing with your case as you've received that letter means that i't is not going to sit in any of their draws but will be dealt with. Good sign I would say.

Good luck and please as you keep us updated!
