Received a text messaged "Your information has now been submitted to UKVI". 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.

@Ali0383 Please don't post questions in this TIMELINE THREAD ONLY.

Please don't send me PMs asking for immigration advice on posts that are on the open forum. If I haven't responded there, it's because I don't have the answer. I'm a moderator, not a legal professional.
