waiting....

it is really worrying here people are waiting even after 6 months...

It is like an in-country arrest. I don't know whether this kind of law exists in any other country. Honestly I feel so depressed.

. Hi jony_dhaka, in one of your previous post you critisized us with wife and kids even grand kids that we stay here as so called student and got so many kids and you are feeling luckey that you are not marrid and have no kids. I haven't been back home last 9 years but still don't feel lonely because i have my wife and my two kids with me, i know we suffer a lot but still never feel lonely mate. Pls don't underestimate anybody because you never know what people have and you might not have. No hard feelings. Goodluck.
Very well said. I felt his criticism as well when he commented. Shouldn't judge other people as a group not knowing their individual circumstances.

Hi,
English language requirement is must if someone is applying on FLR (M). You have to pass English language test or claim exemption through academic qualification taught in English otherwise application will be rejected.

Some people may advise you that Life in the UK test fulfil the requirement of English language but it does not on form FLR (M). One of my friend's wife FLR(M) rejected because they sent LIUK and not the English language test following advise by a well know solicitor and now going through pain of appeal.

Please refer to FLR (M) application form page 29 SECTION 8 - ENGLISH LANGUAGE REQUIREMENT. If you follow FLR (M) Section 8 step by step you will find how English language requirement could be met and you will not find LIUK test there.
If you want to know more details then please refer to FLR(M) guide page 6 and follow this link.

http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/visas ... -language/

Easiest test is Trinity college you may already know
http://www.trinitycollege.co.uk/site/?id=2094

Best of luck,
Shad

GAP during 10 years long residencey

Post by fiazpk » Sun Jul 28, 2013 5:54 pm

It is soon going to be 10 years since I have lived in the United Kingdom, and I wish to find out if I am eligible for Indefinite Leave to Remain,
All my visa extensions have been well in advance of their expiry except one,
where my student visa was expiring on 13/07/2005 and I posted my student visa application on 18/07/2005 as especial next day delivery and confirmation of receipt of my application was issued on 28/07/2005 and student visa was issued on 16/08/2005,
It seems there is 14 days gap including weekends between my visa expiry and receipt of visa application was issued at stated on home office letter head,
And application was post after 4 days after visa expired the reason for this was that my college released my documents late on 15/05/2005, dates also stated on my college documents,

In my 10 years stay in UK, I have only once been out of UK for one month exactly,

I would be very grateful, if you could access my situation and confirm if I am eligible for ILR application,
Regards,
Riaz

Lost my old passport

Post by vaz » Sun Jul 28, 2013 6:35 pm

I am on tier 1 general and have been living in uk from past 10 years. My Tier 1 visa is ending on july 2016. As i am eligible for ILR for long residency, i thought of applying, but the problem is I have lost my previous passport which contained all my visas. And even i cant recall the dates I have been out of country. I do meet all the criteria for 10 years legal residency except once my application was sent back with payment problem, and later same week i re-applied and got the visa.

I am not able to find any solution for lost passport and to calculate days i was abroad. Please guide me.

Thank you

I applied before april ..we actually had more then this .. ur one is more simplified ..

PLEASE READ AGAIN :
Section 4 - Documents SET (LR) Application Form (version 04/13) Page 18
IT said ''All the passports you have held during this time. If you cannot provide them all, you must
provide the passports you have together with any Home Office letter(s) or other document(s)
granting you leave to enter and/or remain in the UK. You should also provide documents of the
type listed below to show that you were continuously resident in the UK during any periods for
which you are ((unable to provide a passport.))

If you are able to provide ur passport with all the visa history for last 10 years ..then don't worry about the long list .

Man i feel really sorry for your loss . .I think you should speak to a lawyer .Your case is complicated .i think you also have to provide a latter to home office saying the reason why you cant provide ur passport including any travel documents if u have .You might consider providing ur attendance in ur college or payslip that you was not absence in uk for more then 6 month at once and 450 days in last 10 years . Take look at (SET (LR) Application Form (version 04/13) Page 18 and 19)

Dear admin/moderators

this thread is no longer serving its purpose. Can a new sticky thread/post be started for '2013 Long residence application timelines' so that people applying for ILR can get an idea of timescales involved not repeated questions about the documents required etc.

Totally agree.

This topic became useless for Timelines. Previously, these timeline topics were moderated and off-topic comments were not allowed.

No offense, but you guys have the whole forum for your discussions, instead you write all this crap to this topic.

Where is the moderator?

I concur. People are just posting irrelevant questions, that should be for a separate forum, and this forum should be only for those who are applying ILR.

Where is the admin!
