Update:

I am one of the July 2012 applicant. Just received a mis-delivery note from our postman when I came back from work this evening (16/04/2013)!

The number on the card is the prepaid special delivery envelope that I've attached with my ILR application 9 months ago!! Going to pick it up tomorrow from our post office depot. I hope it's good news! Will update you guys again tomorrow.

Good luck and all the best to those waiting.

[quote="saanju9"][quote="angel62"]I cannot apply for settlement under Tier-2 as my wages are below £35,000 then if I got ILR under long residency then my wife time spent as my PBS dependent will not count towards 2 years qualifying period.Am I right or wrong?[/quote]

No because she is a Tier 2 dependent.. she can count towards 2 years qualifying period.. so she can apply after 2 years

[quote="Damanisshallo"]

Since the dependent came to UK in Dec 2009 which is Pre-July on a dependent visa he/she would fall under the first condition of the first if (Qualifying Period).

Because the dependent was on a non settlement route he/she would fall under the first condition of the second if (Calculating Qualifying Period).[/quote]

sorry man little over look of your algorithm in previous post.

But you said

"[color=red]then[/color]
You cannot add/Combine/Amalgamate your stay.
[color=red]else[/color]
You can add your previous stay towards qualifying period.
[color=red]end if[/color]

in this algorithm your 1st saying you cannot and then "else" your saying you can

whats the difference between
[b]"cannot add your stay"[/b]
and
[b]"can add your stay towards qualifying period"[/b]

just need a bit clarity here[/quote]

Dear all,
Please anybody can update sushdmehta post as follows according to the new rules.

Hi All

I contacted UKBA just now and they give me some unexpected answer.

They managed to tell me that they have just assigned my case to a case team in liverpool.

I called the 0870 number, but i might have accidentally press the wrong button but somehow it's got connected quickly anyway.

I will update you all once I got more news.

Many Thanks

Hello mrgSingh.

I am in the same situation... Applied on the 09 August ( Set 0 - 10 years route ) still awaiting. Did not contact my MP so far. Is your case straight forward ? As you said i don't think UKBA working on July application this is not true. Now they on strike for the week..sooo more delays....!! How many time you contacted your MP ? you think its worthy ?

Due to Bank Hol payment taken out : 30/08/2012 (Paid by Debit card)
Acknowledgement letter : received on 3/09/12 (dated 30/08/2012)
Biometric letter : received on 23/10/12 (dated 20/10/12)
biometric done : 24/10/12
passport/bio card received : waiting

Got reply back from my MP again...very disappointed...
The UKBA unable to confirm the time scale to make a decision on my application. They state that they are still working on the July applications which doesn't appear to be true here...................
Don't think if we have any other option other than wait........................

Hi , No Lawyer, No pay Slips, I only sent what they had asked for, only additional document I had provided them was SAR one page which shows all my Landing cards records, No Visa gapes,,,,however there was one in-coming missing stamp on my passport but i did not provide any thing to cover that.

I did contact my MP after 4.5 months , after 6.50 month, and last Monday (8-04-2013), sent few time emails to UKBA but no reply received from them

I hope you all get soon.

Congratulations from me too. You can now get on with your life. Sorry I edited the religious bits in your original post. Good luck to your PhD and your job hunt in academia (must be tough though - but now you don't have to worry about the residency requirements).
