Hello,

I think it starts from when a valid application is submitted.

Not sure if my timeline will be counted from 25 August or 16 September.

From 26 August 2011 : 5.5 weeks
From 16 September 2011 : 2.5 weeks

Status: Waiting
It will be counted from 16 Sep 2011. As this time they will start processing your application.
The question is... to be or not to be....

Did you try to ask what they mean by pending ?? I don't know what they do which takes that long.
Now i really don't know what should do ?

thats the problem,

I asked them what to expect next and they said its all pending and they cannot tell me any thing about further waiting time, its all in process - and that is the reason I was thinking what's the use of this service, you cannot call them before 14 weeks, and if you call them afterwards they just say its all pending/being processed which I you already know..

ILR applicants: Is it normal to wait for upto 18 weeks ?

Post by seto30june » Fri Oct 07, 2011 6:13 pm

Dear all,

just want to know about SETO ILR applicants, my 14 weeks waiting time is well over now. Is there any one who has waited >= 18 weeks. I just want to know is it normal that one has to wait upto 18 weeks [or more] or is really unusual, because what I am thinking is to withdraw application if I don't hear any thing in a months time [ total 18 weeks] and then to apply personally.

I did call them, what they say its in progress.

Any experience in this regard and suggestions will be extremely helpful for me, and ofcorse for other fellows who are waiting for over 14 weeks now.

Many thanks and kindest regards

If that was not the full payment I think I [ & I believe most of others] would d done it ages ago, its just a pain every day. I think I l wait for a month and then would strongly consider withdrawing.

Do you need your passport urgently otherwise try not to think abt it and just have fun. I must admit I look out for it in the post everyday and 12 weeks on and still waiting.

I find that coming to this thread doesn't make me feel better either so I'll just come back once a week or two to see if ppl in my batch have gotten theirs. Mine's Set O - applied 15th July.

Applied for SET (0) for myself and my son - UK Ancestry
Application rec'd 7th of Aug
Payment Taken 11th of Aug
Letter Rec'd and Dated 10th of Aug

Been waiting for 6 weeks now, so I suppose another 8 to go (mid Nov), I am a little worried however that some of your applications are taking longer and I hope it doesn't go over 14 weeks as I need to travel back to NZ in December for our wedding. I have also read that it takes 15 working days to get my passport back........so I hope it doesn't get to end nov and I have to withdraw my application because my visa expired on the 15th of Aug (uk ancestry) and I will not be able to come back into the UK once I come back from our wedding in NZ? Do you think come 14 weeks I can request there fax number and send through a request to hurry it up a bit, seeing I have to go back for my wedding?
Thanks

Thanks
Hi Everyone,
My son and I received our passports yesterday, stamped on the 3rd of Oct and delivered on the 7th of Oct......so waiting time was just over 8 weeks. So relieved....!!!! All the best everyone

I am completing 23 weeks and into 24th week since I applied for ILR Set(O). Its been damn frustrating as every time I call they come back with the same answer that its still being processed. I have now posted a letter to HOME OFFICE raising a concern regarding the delay as I noticed that some of them who applied later have already received their ILR. HOPE is the only word that I have in mind..........

Go to your local MP and ask him to write and status update letter to Home office hopefully u will get a reply with proper reason why it is getting delayed. Or they will give u a decission.
