Applied for ILR Route : SET (M) ( 5 years ILR route) paid for super priority premium service 24 hr. Croydon (Bedford Point)
Date application sent / submitted online: 18/04/2019
Payment Debited :18/04/2019
Document uploaded on sopra steria: 24/04/2019
Date Biometrics Enrolled : I opted for a an appointment a month later as I had wanted to ensure i had got all my documents in order to upload and because I had to travel abroad in between submitting the application online and attending the biometric appointment. The appointment was booked for Saturday 18/05/2019 - Attended a Saturday appointment at 9am at Croydon (had paid £100 for the appointment). They enrolled my fingerprints and picture etc. They also took a scan of every page of my passport. I had paid for document checking service (£35), they said everything had already been checked of the documents I had uploaded and all was in order. Apart from this, I should mention that my spouse was not allowed in the building, only the applicant. However, the process was very quick and I was only in the building for half an hour.
Approval/Refusal Received : approval received on Monday 20/05/2019 at 10:30am by email. So paid for 24 hours service having attended a Saturday morning appointment and got email Monday morning. Pretty happy with the service.

BRP Card Received : waiting but should have it within the next few days.

As a silent follower of this forum and having found it soo helpful. I thought it was important to share my experience too!

This topic is for ILR postal applications for Set(O), Set(F) and Set(M) ONLY and NOT for Set(LR) questions or varying to Set(LR) questions and most definitely NOT for discussing Tax Discrepancies and Amendments.

Previous topic locked due to the usual off topic discussions and posts by some members causing the thread to become low value and rambling.

Hello,
Below is my timeline
Straight forward application, standard option. Received Bio card today, first I’d heard since March! I had recurved a biometrics letter asking me to submit my details in April however I had already done this and when I emailed they advised it was a system error.
All approved. It’s hard waiting!
Best of luck!
