you don't need too many documents...all u need is your passports and Life in UK test... and completed application form... 10 Year route is easiest route to get ILR...

though prepared yourself for long waits in processing times


Good luck...

Agreed that it is one of the easiest application to get ILR, but this category is one of the longest waiting time.

The reason it was told that many members do send spouse flr(m) application along with set(o) because their spouse visa may be expiring along with their main applicant including me. so there is no chance of sending sponsors passport for flr(m) and giving reason that it is with UKBA and awaiting decision and later flr(m) visa will be awarded after the main applicant case considered.

but in your case i don't know that you have already received your passport and brp.

But anyway nothing wrong, just keep an eye on the post , best of luck. Please do call them or write to them whether they need your documents ?
Hi Z18,

as yes I have received my Passport & BRP card last week along with approval letter.

should I wait for them to contact me or just call them and ask whether I need to send my passport & brp back to them. if I will need to send them then it will create problem for my son's MN1 application.

any suggestion from your side. if I hear further then I will let you know.

@DB12 did you by any chance happened to call UKBA and get through them regarding this issue...i tried 3 - 20 mins but i couldn't and they are closed before i finished work to stay longer on the phone...

could u give us some update if u called them regarding whether to send your docs for your spouses FLR(m)..

thanks mate
Hi saanju9

I have tried to call them yesterday as my wife submitted her biometrics on Saturday but I had to wait over 20mins and there was no response and due to limited time I get being at work (between 1& 2pm) I could not wait for long time for someone to answer my phone. I am thinking to write to them or send an e-mail. i will try to call them today and let you know if i can speak to them or else if you find any information please let me know.

do they log the number of time we call them ?

I just called them again today to be told off "Why do you keep on calling us every week? Please continue to wait" . That guy didn't even ask for my reference number.

adkh2_1 wrote:Thanks for confirming dude..
i suppose my next question is what if UKBA tells you on the phone your application is not complete... and few hrs later you receive your ILR... I remember i saw that on this forum once....

AMH wrote:It doesn't matter how many number of times you called
I'm a sept applicant and I'm calling atleast 3times a week as 6months exceed

you should have said " the money you earn comes from my application fee, and i want you to do some work for what i pay u...not just sit in front of a screen and expect no one to call and bother them" :wink: :wink:

Re: Visa expires next month - eligibility of work

workseeker wrote:Hi All,

I have applied for 10 years ILR on 23 Nov 2012, received my Bio-metric in the month of 10 Jan 2013 which was done the day next. Now my Tier 1 General visa is due to expire by end of next month.

Even though it says in the bio-metric letter that I can continue to work until the decision has been made, does this rule applies for dependents as well?

If my dependents employer is asking for any evidence to show the eligible to continue her current work, can bio-metric letter addressed to me is sufficient enough to provide as evidence?

If you've made an application for your dependent and she's submitted her Bio-metrics, her employer should be able to do a ECS check with the UKBA.

On a separate note: If for any reason SET(o) application is refused after my Tier - 1 Visa expiry, am I still eligible to apply for FLR on Tier 1?

Yes, you'd be covered by Section 3C.

Any help on the above information is much appreciated.

Many Thanks

Thanks Damanisshallo,

As I said I have not applied for ILR for my wife yet, it is 10years based indefinit leave to remain. So, I need to apply first and then for dependents if I am not wrong.

Thanks
