Applied for ILR Route : SET(O) - Tier 2(G)
Date online application Submitted : 23/01/2020
UKVCAS Appointment : 28/01/2020 (Tuesday)
UKVCAS Appointment Location: Croydon Core Service Centre (had to pay £85, no free appointments were available in London for the available booking dates)
Type of Service taken: Priority Service - 5 working days (don't do super priority unless super super urgent - you can save £300!)
Approval/Refusal Received : Approval mail received 29/01/2020 (next day, at 12:00!)
BRP Card Delivered (attempted, no one home to sign) - 03/02/2020

Thanks for all of the wisdom shared - I haven't been very active here, but have learned so much (and avoided any legal fees!) just from reading through previous posts.

One note - because I saw some confusion in other posts - I submitted a payslip and bank account statement dated after my online submission but before my UKVCAS appointment, and this was absolutely fine.

Overall I was surprised by how straightforward and quick the process was. My route was easy, I did not overthink it and collected all documents myself (no lawyers etc), only applied what was on the HO checklist during the application

Wishing the best of luck to everyone applying and waiting :)

Just want to share my timeline. My wife was on Tier 1 General's spouse visa, then went on to the 5-year partner route as I had my ILR back in 2014.

Applied for ILR Route : 11/01/2020 SET(M) (same day as her visa ends. But we have started to fill it in a week earlier)
Date application sent : 11/01/2020 online application with super priority service option.
Document received by HO : 31/01/2020 - finished uploaded around 7am before driving to the Biometric appointment at 10am. We uploaded to Sopra Steria's website ourselves - I used google drive to scan documents mainly.
Ack letter received (if applicable) : 11/01/2020 confirmation via email
Biometric Letter received : 6/02/2020
Date Biometrics Enrolled : 31/01/2020 - 10am. This was the only one we could book for free near the Birmingham airport office. The process finished around 10:50am.
Payment Debited : 11/01/2020 for 3208.20 GBP
Approval/Refusal Received : Approval email received on 3/2/2020 at 12:54pm
BRP Card Received : 5/02/2020 (re-delivered to 10/2/2020 as we're away - DX delivery). Date of issue on card says 3/02/2020

This forum has helped me a lot through the years for me (since 2007!) and my family. This is our final visa application and I hope and pray that it will be easy and uncomplicated for everyone else too. Thanks.

I'm new....

My current visa expires on the 28th February. I submitted my ILR application using the 24hrs superior service, my biometric was taken and document submitted at 8am Sopra Steria Croydon.Received a text messaged at 18:06 "Your information has now been submitted to UKVI". It's been over 24hrs, no email or phone call from the HO however i have called the UKVI helpline and they advised that I called back on Monday if I haven't back from the HO. I have been checking my current status using the link shared on this page and my status hasn't changed, so i guess no action has been taken.
