Biometrics letter received on 20/04/2018
Biometric submission on 20/04/2018
Monthly email received on 23/04 and 21/04/18 saying still under consideration
Request for upgrade submitted 23/04/18 but declined saying am not eligible for an upgrade please suggest why they have refused my upgrade request and how much time HO is taking for postal applications.
Can you please tell what was your status while make the SET(LR), I went to Sheffield PSC to submit SET(LR) but case worker rejected my application and told me can’t use same day service, and advised me to submit postal application due to complex case according to her, Cause my previous application made on may 2013(T1 entrepreneur) was on appeal due to hear June , I have withdrawn the appeal and went to PSC, the case worker said my previous passport is elsewhere in HO so that she advised me to make postal application. Then I have sent the postal application on 17 May and HO received 18 May 2018, fees deducted 22 May 2018, since then waiting for Acknowledgement letter and Biometric letter. If your case is straight forward ( you sent the application with existing visa) then you could upgrade to premium . But don’t know why they declined your upgrade request. Probably case worker nearly make your application decision so that they don’t want you to upgrade( I have read one case like you on forum) hopefully you will get the decision soon. Also please tell me while you made upgrade request what reason you submitted (why you want to upgrade like urgent travel, quick decision, for employer etc) , I will try again to upgrade to premium once get the acknowledgement letter. Good luck,Thanks
