I would presume that new fees will go up for ILR Set(O) too. I am going to PEO next month and feeling under interrogation totally!fandango wrote:Dear all
I have unfortunately become rather knowledgeable with all this. My story is I married my Israeli husband, he got a spouse visa Entry Clearance and on Thursday 4th November we will be applying in Sheffield PEO with our Set M form and (lots, probably too many!) documents.
I have rung today (and a million times) to the Home Office and I have been informed that on Monday 1 November the fee for Set M will go up to Â£1250. This is a shame. I was hoping it would remain at Â£1095 but alas.
There will be a new form to print off which you HAVE to submit. I will get my banker's draft on Monday/Tuesday now then. Wish me luck, though we are genuine etc etc, I still feel under interrogation and not looking forward to it at all.
Kind regards, JO
Thanks Sushdmehta! I am still waiting for the actual date for these fees take effect on. Lets wait and see...sushdmehta wrote:Fees to be Implemented from November 2010 (Page 4-5).
You are mentioning a fee of Â£1250 and talking about a banker's draft. I query ... does that work .... if you want a same-day service? Won't the PEO insist upon waiting for the banker's draft to clear ..... so you won't get a same-day service?I will get my banker's draft on Monday/Tuesday now then.
There are people out there booked appointments in Nov but not sure if they can pay on line. Due to the 28 day rule, applications can't be submitted prior to 28 days before eligibility. If people pay now on line, does it mean the application submitted earlier than 28 days?John wrote:Well no, I don't think they do. They hope people will fill in the form online, and pay online, and anyone doing that today will, it seems, pay at the old rate.Do they really expect people to fill it out on the morning?
Apply by post if your husband's current leave is due to expire before he completes 2 years in the UK. Even if you apply in-person the application will put on hold and you may end up paying extra money for the same postal processing timelines.lesley15 wrote:Hi my application will have to be submitted on line before the 28 day rule because my husband entered the uk on the 7th December 2008 so can apply 9th November 2010.
Applying to settle here if you delayed your entry to the UK wrote:If you were given permission to enter the UK as a husband, wife, civil partner or unmarried/same-sex partner but you then delayed your travel to the UK by up to three months, you can apply to live here permanently using application form SET(M) shortly before your permission to enter ends. As long as you meet the other requirements of the rules, we will put your application on hold until you have completed your two-year qualifying period in the UK.
The date of payment for an in-country application is not the date of application. And UKBA has not published anything to suggest so prior to / after launching the online payment service.claudiafan wrote:If people pay now on line, does it mean the application submitted earlier than 28 days?
If using SCS, I guess the date of application will be the date of receipt of application by UKBA (as is the case for naturalisation applications routed through NCS).Specified forms and procedures wrote:13.1 For the purposes of these rules, the date on which an application (or a variation) is made is the date of posting for postal applications, the date of acceptance by a public enquiry office for applications submitted in person or the date of delivery to the UK Border Agency if sent by courier.
