Hi all,

I got my SET(LR) approval on the same day. I switched from Tier 1 Entrepreneur.

Date application (online/postal) : 25th January
Document received by HO/Uploaded through UKCVAS : 31st January (20 Mark Lane)
Acknowledgement letter/email received (if applicable) : None
Date of UKCVAS Appointment (if applicable) : 31st January
Complex Letter received (if applicable) : None
Approval/Refusal Received : 31st January (Same day at 13:10 pm)
BRP Card Received : Waiting

Couldn't be happier. I was expecting long delays because I was on Tier 1 Entrepreneur and never expected a same day approval in a million years!

Good luck to everyone!
