I also called and spoke to a man named Ono and he said they would be able to help 5 yr long stay applicant who are on tier 1 or 2 points based. It costs £1200 but they can get you a new form and appointment and you can have the passport and documents within a week! He seemed really lovely so it's worth a try for those that can afford it and have the right requirements. Sadly this is not a possibility for me but thought I would share!

PS tier 4 10 yr long stay applicants cannot apply for this service!

Fax Number for complaints

Post by zamiramin » Fri Apr 19, 2013 10:31 am

Hi All


I had a death in my family yesterday and I need to write to the UKBA to expedite my application. I have emailed the head of the UKBA as well as the Home Secretary



I applied on 15 September 2012 and provided biometrics on 29 November 2012 . I have now been in the queue for over 7 months. My MP has told me on Monday that my application has not been touched yet.

Does anyone know a number I can Fax to ask for my application to be expedited.

Thanks

Now I wanna apply for MN1 for my son but there r couple of issues
1- his passport is expired, does he have to have a valid passport or just birth certificate will do?
2- the fee of £673, do I have to include £80 for cermony fee or as my son is just 5 years old he don't have to.
Thanks, if someone could guide please.

Finally! Good luck to those still waiting

Post by wating2003 » Fri Apr 19, 2013 11:04 am

I have been a silent reader since I applied mine ILR.

Applied date: 3rd Sep 2012
Biometric done: 31/10/2012
Bio card received: 19/04/2013, dated 17/04/2014
Passport&docs: waiting

My case is very straight forward, 6yrs student+ 2yrs psw + 2 years student.
I called UKBA 1st time on 11/04/2013 and they said nothing had been sent out, then I emailed my MP after the call. MP's secretary replied and asked my postal address on 16/04/2013 and I called UKBA again with no luck.

those who are still waiting I think you will get yours soon!

PS: anyone know when I may apply for the uk passport based on current rules? Thanks a lot^^

Still waiting

Post by missniu » Fri Apr 19, 2013 11:26 am

I finally wrote to the home secretary and UKBA CEO. I am freaking out that i did but i'm sure its worth a try.

I spoke to someone in the UKBA today and as usual, my application is still pending. She was nice though but she gave me a silly response.

I asked,

"Does this mean my application has not yet been allocated to a case worker"?

She replied,

"Once we receive all your documents, it is automatically allocated to a case worker"

I found this response strange because we are under the assumption that no caseworker is allocated.

Anyway, wish me luck.

Ok, so I just found out that my case has now been given to a case worker but they cannot confirm a date of processing. How long does it usually take to process if its been given to a case worker? I remember asking before and someone said two hours but I was not sure?

Also....I found out from the lawyer that one of the reasons why there is such a backlog of July and August applications was because of the Olympics and that many case workers were being called off their desks to deal with boarder issues at the airport. The Olympics were a great success and we are all very grateful for their help ....so I am feeling a bit more empathetic towards their situation. It must also be very frustrating working in an office where the computer is constantly crashing on you.

Fingers crossed we will all here positive things from them soon.

How did you find out if your case was allocated to a case worker?
(don't know about the processing time, but surely that's what they mean by "90% cases decided within 6 months"? i.e. from the day case worker received it! Hopefully, I am very wrong though. )

Well my MP assistant called the MP hotline and they told her the other day that the last time my case was looked at was on the 15th April and that was to log into the system that I was past the 6 month time period but had not been assigned a case worker. She received a phone call today that informed her I had been allocated to a case worker.

Possibly when you turn your application in there are a number of processes of case workers? One to put you into the system and decide whether you can do your biometrics and then a final analysis of the case? I have no idea to be honest but when the assistant called the other day it hadn't had one and today it does?

My feeling is that there is the following approach:
1. take the payment
2. send the application to the corresponding department.
3. log you into the system
4. request biometrics
Black hole
5. once biometrics received assign to case team
6. assign to case worker

I don't know when UKBA actually looks at the application to determine e.g. that you actually sent the correct form - perhaps before biometrics invitation?

But maybe it is their approach, wait until the deadline (6 months) and then assign it to case worker?
