oh no,
finger cross.

I think because they are short of staff and no budget. and they use available resources for other applications which paid good money compare to us pay nothing :(.

I wish we had option of fast track :)

But what else can we do other than wait?

let's keep each other update,

Ask your employer to use employee checking service, whilst your application is in process. The home office will send them notification confirming your in time application which should allow you to carry on working. If the application was made within 28 days before the expiry date, you are covered under section 3C of immigration act 1971, which should allow you to have same rights when you had your leave.

I hope you receive a positive reply next week mate.
I heard from someone if you can’t access the application online anymore that means they might have made their decision. As it tells you on the website that you can access your details for sometime I think and then they would delete all the data. Don’t know how much truth is there to it.. Check if you can still see your application online. All the best

The home office website:
Gov.uk

Where you fill your online application. The last page of further actions, they tell you upto what date you’re able to view your information. And after that you will not be able to view that page.
As this MIGHT be a possibility they have decided your application that’s why your information is not there anymore...
It’s not 100% but could be something..

Hope this helps

Hi Guys

Thanks for sharing all the info as it is very helpful, I have finished the ILR app online and I'm due to book the biometrics, is my only option the Sopra Steria ? as it is £100 and the free appointments are far ahead, how do I upload my docs?
Much appreciated

You can upload online at home if you have a scanner, which will cost you nothing, depending on number of documents you’re uploading may take alot of time. Sopra steria is more quicker and easier as they’ll upload everything for u and take your biometrics and pics, obviously for a price which is not very desirable but it’s convenient I think. If u go for sopra steria you might wanna get their text message service as you’ll receive a text confirmation that you’ve submitted your docs via sopra steria...

Hope this helps
All the best

Thanks for your response, I have completed the application and I'm booking the appointment now, but haven't seen any part of the process that allows you to upload the documents, also where are the required docs listed?

thanks for your help

The required list of docs can be seen after you complete your application on gov website. List of docs will come up then. Plus you can add more docs to support your application like your bank statements, payslips etc. The choice of uploading your docs should be there on steria website when you’re choosing your options.
