My spouse submitted the ILR application [ set(M) ], and attended biometrics appointment with UKVCAS in May. It's been over 3 months, and well over 60 working days. We haven't had anything back from the Home Office yet.
How long are we supposed to wait before contacting HO? I can't seem to find any guidance about that. I didn't expect the processing time to be this long, and technically the current visa expires sometime next month.
Also, it looks like the home office email service is only for applications from outside the UK? Is there no way to contact them in writing about the application from inside the UK?
Would appreciate advice.
You don't get one.Can someone who has gone through the appointment with UKVCAS please let me know if they received an email confirmation or otherwise after their appointment?
It doesn't make her an overstayer if she submitted an application before her visa expires, which means once her visa expires, she is protected under section 3C of the immigration rules, i.e. existing visa conditions continue till HO make a decision.I am imagining a situation where my spouse has stayed in the UK beyond the current leave expiry date (awaiting visa decision), and then the HO saying they never received the documents and my spouse has overstayed illegally. It just makes me uncomfortable.
What date exactly did she enter the UK in May 2014?At the end of May 2014 on the 5 year route.
Yes you should. You might also want to make sure any letters haven't been delivered to any neighbours in error and they haven't informed you (yes this happens more often than you would think).No I haven't contacted my MP - should I?
