This is about IRL – Long Resident

As per ILR application requirements for documents submitted, you should submit all previous passports hold during qualifying period.

You should also provide all previous passports and/or travel documents that you have used to travel to and remain in the United Kingdom.
(ILR Application (LR) v03/2106, page 9)

All the passports you have held during this time. If you cannot provide them all, you must provide the passports you have together with any Home Office letter(s) or other document(s) granting you leave to enter and/or remain in the UK. You should also provide documents of the type listed below to show that you were continuously resident in the UK during any periods for which you are unable to provide a passport.
(ILR Application (LR) v03/2106, page 24)

And, I cannot provide any of the listed documents.

However, I hold copies of previous passports but it is not certified though.

Please advise what should I do in this matter?

Many thanks,

so james are you aware which date the cw considers? if you will be posting application 4 months earlier and suppose by the time cw start process your application and that time you reach your ten years do you think cw would still process application as people says cw considers the date of posting application?

regards[/quote]


I still haven't decided.
There is a split opinion about cw consideration of date etc.

Yes and No both.

However I more interested to know what If CW refuses the application due to before time.

WHAT OPTIONS WIL HE GIVE ME.

coz by the time if he refuses at at least 1-2 months have at least passed. Hence 9 years and 11 months will be quite near.

So far I haven't got an answer for this from anywhere ; ((((

Also Tier 1 Extension fee+ cost is about 8K for 3 applications. if successful then 90 days later SET LR And SET M is another 9K.

timing is very important, u need to apply for tier 1 extension first, then vary ur application to ILR, just after 2-3 days of giving biometrics, i think by that way u will gain sufficient time, u need to do that with some good solicitor

Immigration gurus (this is regarding ILR),

I applied for a Tier 2 visa extension mid 2015 and Home Office sat on the application for 3-4 months awaiting for me to submit an additional fee on basis that my job was not on the shortage occupation list (EVEN THOUGH IT WAS).Upon receiving the request I submitted the paperwork to have the fee deducted from my account immediately but no amount was taken. After 3 months from the day I submitted the application and wIthout informing me that they were now going to decline my application, the HO wrote to my sponsor stating that I did not have the right to work. I did not have my passports nor any other documents returned at this point. As a desperate act I wrote to the Cardiff Office and they agreed to take the fee and process the application, subsequently issuing the Biometric Residence Permit from Nov 2016 as opposed to June 2016 thereby leaving a gap of over 4 months. Now I plan to apply for the ILR on the basis of long residency and question is can I use the 3C rule to compensate for this gap?

Thanks in advance.

Working holiday 2 years + EEA family members 5 years + Tier 2 general current.

Yes, you have to pass LIUK test. Why do you think you do not?

You will also have to include all your EU family members documents (exercising treaty rights etc) for the period you were an EEA Family Member.

You need the EU citizens proof of exercising treaty rights. You don't exercise treaty rights as you are not an EU citizen. You need bank statements, proof of the self sufficiency, proof of CSI, P60s, etc. Set(LR) form, question D14 on page 14 explains, link below

Thanks again. I think I am in trouble here. Spending all these years paying tax and have done stupid mistake of not having comprehensive medical insurance.

I have her health insurance card from Denmark which is valid until 2012. I have all the relationship documents but no medical insurance for 5 years.

So if I do not have CMI for her and me in those 5 years that mean I cannot qualify for 10 year category?

Foreign issued EHIC card is sufficient IF it covers the period your were on EEA Family permit. You don't list your dates of the various visa so I cannot comment further.

Dear all
I came to UK on Student visa on 28th May 2006. Since then my visa was extended as student, Tier 4 then 2012 I got PSW. Then Tier 4 valid up to 18th April 2016.
I was short of 11+ 28 days to complete 10 years. (28 May 2016)
I have one dependent.
I have applied for FLR (O) with my (one) dependent on 15th April 2016 via Royal Mail Special Delivery.
I varied my application FLR (O) to SET (LR) on 3rd MAY. 2016 Via Royal mail Special Delivery
Dependent application, FLR (O) to FLR (M) on 3rd MAY 2016 Via Royal mail Special Delivery
I have paid full fee for FLR (O) as well as SET (LR)
Dependent paid full fee for FLR (O) and for FLR (M) requested to transfer the fee to FLR (M) application coz there wasn’t any difference in the fee.

My application Timeline:

Application made FLR (O) 15th April 2016
Acknowledgement letter received for FLR (O) Applications 12th May 2016
Biometric Enrolment Letter: Not received

Varied Application FLR (O) to SET (LR) 3rd MAY 2016 Via Special Delivery
Application Received on 4th May 2016.
Fee deducted on 5th May 2016 (Debit Card)
Acknowledgement Letter: Not Received
Biometric Enrolment Letter: Not received

Varied Application FLR (O) to FLR (M) 3rd MAY 2016. Via Special Delivery
Application Received on 4th May 2016.
Acknowledgement Letter: Received dated 6th MAY 2016.
Biometric Enrolment Letter: Received dated 12th May 2016
Biometric Done: 31st MAY.

Now I am wondering why UKVI didn’t send me acknowledge letter and biometric letter for SET (LR), While FLR (M) application got response quickly.

Dear forum members please share your opinions and experience.
I will be waiting for your kind response.

Hi guys, quick question. I am approaching the end 10yr period and planning to apply for ILR soon. I did my undergrad in the UK followed by postgrad, postgrad work permit and Tier 2. My first UK Student visa was granted for two years only so I applied for a new one when I was on a short holiday back home (i.e. NOT in the UK). I was granted the second Student Visa while back home with no issues. First visa was valid until October 2007, second visa was starting from September 2007 i.e. there was an overlap.

I may be paranoid but just to be sure: does this count as a continuos stay? Getting a new visa back home was simply easier for me back then and, just again, there was a significant overlap between visas so within this period of time I always had a right to enter UK
