Hi All

This forum has been amazing throughout my time here and more recently for my ILR. I have now received my ILR and wanted to share my experience.

Applied for ILR Route : Set (O) Tier 2 (General) 5 year route, no dependants, Super priority service
Date application sent : 10 April 2019 - Online submission
Document received by HO : Uploaded same day on Sopra Steria UKVCAS
Ack letter received (if applicable) : email acknowledgement 10 April 2019
Date Biometrics Enrolled : 03 May 2019 - Core Service Centre
Payment Debited : 10 April 2019
Email received notifying that they are considering the application: N/A
Approval/Refusal Received : 03 May 2019 within 2 hours!
BRP Card Received : Waiting..

I had a salary increase and job change in same SOC code in January 2019 i.e. 3 months prior to applying. The salary increase took me over the ILR threshold. This was reported to HO via SMS in February 2019.

Hope this helps others in a similar situation. All the very Best!

Discovered this forum a few weeks ago - impatience building with the Home Office... Hopefully our timeline will reassure others that they're not alone in their waiting!


Applied for ILR Route : SET(M) 5 years
Date application started : 28/11/2018
Date Biometrics Enrolled :28/11/2018
Ack letter received (if applicable) : monthly
Biometric Letter received : NA
Partners passport returned: 12th April
Approval Received :Still waiting...
BRP Card Received : Still waiting...


Went through the old postal route thinking it would be the safer option. Looks like applications through the new online system are moving a bit more quickly - so kicking ourselves for not wanting to be guinea pigs for the new system!

Yesterday cancelled a trip to Australia for a friends wedding. Reassured that other people who've submitted around this time recently got the approval. There's hope for us yet.

Been 5 months now. Why are they so slow?
Still waiting. Received communication on 24th April that not all documents were submitted. Went back into Sopra Steria the next day where my passport was re-scanned because of an error previously.

This is despite me receiving confirmation in January that all docs were received. My MP is escalating to the immigration minister. I’d recommend others waiting more than 6 months to the same. Good luck!
