Is it common main applicant gets BRP days before dependant

Post by redbuta » Fri Feb 15, 2013 3:53 pm

Dear all,
We applied the ILR and got approved at Glasgow PEO. Thanks all for your help here.

My BRP has already arrived, however after couple of days my wife still hasn't got hers.

Is this common?

Previously when we applied for T1 G and dependant extension by post. the BRPs arrived at the same time.

Thanks!

I dont think it is common but it can happen since it comes through a courier. From what i have read and heard they all come at the same time. I think you should send an email to UKBA (details should be on approval letter).

Alternatively you could call the courier DXSecure to see whether they have another item for you first. Number 01604496798 and press * to speak to the operator. You will be asked for your postcode, name & address.

This is in fact a much better solution - you can't beat the gurus :)

I think this happens sometimes. I applied and got approved in Solihull PEO on 11th Feb along with 2 dependents. Today we only received my BRP and one dependent's BRP. Called DX and they have not got my other dependent's BRP. I have searched through this forum and this was the case with a few applicants. But, they received the other BRPs later.

Thanks again!

I called and they said there was nothing for me.

However after hanging up the phone, realised that I should have given them my wife's surname instead of mine...

Now it's after 5pm, will try again on Monday. Thanks all!

Fingers crossed for us to receive all the BRPs soon.

Have a good weekend.

Called this number. Someone answered the phone within 5 minutes. Unfortunately the DX does not have any outstanding delivery for my wife.

Seems UKBA hasn't made it yet... Start praying now...

That is a 100% guess work!! It is never a fact.. for my case it has always come together!!

And after your wife gets ILR, she is no longer a dependant !!

I have applied with 2 dependants on the 11th Feb and got mine and one dependant's BRP on 15th Feb. Got another BRP yesterday. No special follow ups just the usual email to BRP delivery. Strangely, they replied on 22nd that I will receive the BRP in 3-7 days and my dependent's BRP is also dated 22nd. Dont know if the email did the magic.

Great. All sorted for you then....
Enjoy.

When did you email them for which you received the reply on 22nd? just to know the time they take to reply back.

Cheers

I am in similar situation folks. I was granted ILR for myself and 1 dependent on 12-Feb at Solihull. I received my BRD card on 22-Feb and still waiting for dependent BRP card.

I have emailed BRP team on 27th Feb and waiting patiently for their reply. We have planned for travel to India by March end. Hoping and praying desperately that my dependent BRP arrives before that.
