Applied for ILR too early

Post by Mera6453 » Tue Jan 21, 2020 11:59 pm

Hello

I have applied for set (m) and paid a fee, only to realise a day later ie today that I applied too early. Just because of a silly typo mistake in my checklist.
I haven't been to the appointment, so it's not processed yet, but I don't see an official option to put the application on hold for next 3 weeks until I become eligible. I will call UKVI, but I have doubts I will get a sensible response as per prior feedback on this forum and I am not sure it matters to them that I noticed the error myself. Any advice greatly appreciated! I do hope I haven't put my entire future in this country under risk because of this, though I am beating myself extremely hard.

Thanks a lot

Relax. You should be eligible on the day of the decision. Delay and book your appointment from the day you are eligible. All is good

That's a huge relief, thank you so much Zimba! However is there a possibility that my early application date might become a reason to refuse the application? I have read related topics and I thought UKVI is very strict about it.
