If you’ve chosen their text message service, you’ll receive a text confirmation of submission. Not aware if there’s any other way they send any confirmation.

Read page 13 of Asylum policy instruction - settlement protection. Was updated in 2016 on gov.uk. It explains about the applications that were made early.

No you cannot. You must apply online and make an appointment at Sopra for biometric enrolment etc.

Any reason you cannot simply read through the topic instead of asking members to post details that have already been posted???

Thanks, confirmation of submission is I think instant, I do receive that same day, but once the HO got your application and enrolled biometric I reckon applicants receive a letter by post within 6-8 weeks confirming the application and related documents received, but not entirely sure that’s why asked here.

The email confirmation you get straight away which includes your reference number. However there’s no confirmation by post. Yes if you book your appointment and want to get some sort of confirmation that you’ve uploaded your docs via sopra steria, you’ll need to buy their text message service. If you’ve not received any confirmation at all, it’s best to call them directly I think or email perhaps.

No, I didn’t buy text messages service, but is there any confirmation apart from the first one which includes ref number, is someone has got any letter or email so far? probably won’t sending any.

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
Thanks hoods24 for your support,

I'm still waiting, Now only 5 days (4 working days) are left until the 6 months completion since my application. I will update when I get mine!

As mentioned previously, uploaded all docs online and then booked a bio metric appointment via Sopra Steria, the cheapest one I could find was £75 as the free ones were 3 weeks later and I didn't want to risk it.
The service was great and all the staff were helpful and smiley, the lady who was dealing with me said to me that she went through all my uploaded docs and everything is on track, now just fingers crossed.

Wish you all the best.

A friend of mine applied for ILR Set (P). He submitted his application, then he'd got the email which he used to register with the Sopra Steria ,uploaded his documents, booked an appointment and had his biometric data taken.
He has never received the confirmation email from the HO ( the acknowledgement email with the Case ID).
Is that normal?
he has been waiting for nearly 4 months now

The only confirmation you get is an email which is straight away after submitting the online application on gov.uk
You don’t get any confirmation after you’ve done your biometrics and scanned your docs. Unless you buy sopra steria text message service.
