Hi Congratulation!!

Just wanted to know something about the biometric letter. In both cases you you did biometric in few months gap from the date of application.

Did they take that long to send the first biometric letter specially on second scenario almost 5 months? if that was not the first letter for biometric could you please tell me when did they send the first letter?

Thanks

Thanks for your reply.

Took very long to send biometric but gave you the result in 2 weeks that's really quick compared to the time they take for postal applications.
