I'm completing my 10 years first week of next month. My application SET(O) is still pending with HO and interview has done in April. My question is that can I vary my application to SET(LR), if yes then would I have to wait to complete 10 years till next month or I can apply before 28 days while pending application.

URGENT help much be appreciated.

Thanks
Vesh
You can apply 28 days before, dont't have to wait to complete 10 years.
Hope this helps !!!
Thanks . should I go for premium service or postal and do I also need to give them the reason for varying application?

thanks
Vesh
Go for the Postal application as I am sure you won’t get the decision same day, as we have seen with the past applications, the case never been decided in a same day (mostly Self-Employed cases) and been forwarded to the Senior Case Workers.
And you don’t need to give any reason to vary the application.
Thanks Lad, but won't they take as negative if i don't provide the reason and can ask why I'm varing it as my interview has been done for SET(O)?

Thanks

They don't ask you the reason for varying the application, couple of my friends including me varied the application from SET(O) to SET(LR), and did not mention any reason.
Here's what we wrote in out Covering Letter we sent with LR Application -
I have already applied for SET(O) Visa Application. All my documents together with my Passport and Life in the UK Certificate are already with the Home Office. As I have not had a decision on that application I would like to request for Variation of my Visa Application from SET(O) to SET(LR)
As I am varying the application, I have left the payment page blank as I have already made a payment for the Visa Fees for SET(O) form and both the fees for SET(O) and SET(LR) are same.
I originally entered the UK on (xx/xx/xxxx) on a XYZ Visa that makes me am eligible to apply for indefinite leave to remain on the basis of 10 years long residence in the UK. Whilst I have been present in the UK, I have remained as a law abiding member of the public. I have maintained good relationships with members of the community. During my residence in the UK I never made recourse to public funds and have therefore not been burdened on the state.

Vary wife's application to FLR(M), you have to pay the IHS Surcharges, plus proof of you earnings of around £18600 (without any dependant), plus 6/12 each person proofs that you are cohabiting.
And request them to hold the decision until the Main Applicant's application has been decided.

Hi all,

I am going to apply my ILR on 10 years route. Here is my immigration history.
I came in 2007 July and was on student via till 2012 December. Than I got psw which expire in december 2014. I was applied tier 4 but college was late to give me CAS letter. So I applied FLR (Fp) in december and got refused with right of appeal in feb2015. I applied for upper tribunal and got refused with right of appeal to upper tribunal. Applied to upper tribunal and got refused in October 2016 . Applied to upper tribunal for appeal of court and got refused by upper tribunal in 2017 feb. Upper tribunal send me letter to apply to court of appeal by myself in 28 to seek permission to court of appeal which I did on time before 28 days and it's still pending with court of appeal . I am going to withdraw appeal from court of appeal and trying to get premium service in Glasgow. So please friends guide me that I'm doing well .
Your help really mean to me.

Premium service is NOT an interview. A representative means nothing and has no bearing on the outcome. HO unlikely to even talk to a representative if you are present. Submit the documents the forum asks. If your documents are already somewhere with HO, you are unlikely to get a decision on your ILR on the same day, so you will be paying premium rate for an application that will take a few weeks.

Thanks CR001 for your reply. Really helpful. just few more thinks if you help with.
1. Would I fill SET (LR) form for on 10 years basis?
2. In case of refusal would I get the appeal rights and while my appeal is pending would I still allow for work?

Hope to hear from you soon.

1. Yes

2. Maybe, maybe not. A couple of members have not received appeal rights for refused Long residence ILR. If refused and you have no valid visa, there are very few options open to you and working will be an issue. If you get appeal rights, your section 3c protection should be fine.

Also, if your ILR fails, your dependents will have a problem if their visas have already expired. Their FLR(M) will fail if your ILR fails and they are unlikely to get appeal rights.

Thanks for your reply. My wife's application is also pending as dependent of SET(0) (Tier 1 general route). Should I also vary her application to FLR(M) on the same day or wait until my decision comes of SET(LR).

She cannot apply for ILR on Set(O) if you vary. She only has the option of FLR(M) which will reset her clock to zero and a new 5 year route to ILR. You will have to vary hers and ask for it to be held till your ILR decision is made.

Why do you want to vary to Set(LR)?

Why do you want to vary to Set(LR)?
Some Solicitor advised me that you can vary from SET(o) to SET (lR) before 28 days (completion of 10 years) and leave wife's application pending as dependent SET(O). Once I got SET(LR) you can vary her application. Is that true? One more thing if for some reason I get refusal then apply for appeal then what would be my wife's status and what application i can apply for her?

Thanks

Congratulations to you. It's a good thing to see SET (LR) approval within the service standard after a while. Some of us are still waiting, hoping and praying. Do enjoy your freedom
