So annoyed with the UKBA!!!

Post by syed_ILR » Fri May 17, 2013 10:17 pm

I am applying for ILR next week and I also booked Tier1 appointment just in case. Paid 100 pounds each for the appointments.

I just checked my email and I got an email from the Tier1 PEO asking me to confirm again if I am attending the appointment and confirm my details again. If I don't reply to that email in 24 hours they will cancel my appointment!

Wtf!!! Why would I pay 100 pounds if I have to confirm this again. What if I did not check the email and something went wrong with my ILR.

Anyone has a clue what's going on ??

They treat us like we are crap!!! They can do anything and everything whenever they feel like...

Better to check regularly the email account and the news & updates until the day of peo appointment.
Please donot send PM. Write in open forum to facilitate others too.

I got email once I paid 100GBP ... email was exactly same as the one I received immediately after booking online.

Call the same number you call to pay fee ... it is easy to get hold of them .. and ask them to confirm your payment.

Secondly .. keep logging in regularly to make sure your appointment is ACTIVE ....

Agree with sheraz 7. Until I attended My PEO appointment,I checked every day twice, My E-mail account and also whether My appointment was still Active in the UKBA web site.

If you want your ILR appointment to be as scheduled originally by you,there is no harm in checking UKBA E-mails..O.K you turn up for your PEO appointment and the PEO staff tells you that your appointment has been cancelled.What are you going to do then??It's your ILR appointment, not any body elses??

@Syed_ILR:
I totally agree with you and you should write to UKBA. It does help them improve their services.

Here are email id, I used in the past:
UKBApublicenquiries AT ukba.gsi.gov.uk
ApplyOnlineE-Support AT homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk


I wrote to UKBA about speculative booking and problems with appointment.
I indeed got acknowledgement saying they will forward to concerned dept.

Kevin I think you are not understanding my point. I am not asking anyone what to do or what not to do. Obviously from now on I will be checking my emails regularly.
My point is what is wrong and what is right. Do you agree it is right or wrong? Do you think me checking the email is right or wrong?

I understand your point.I am not telling you to check your E-mails every day.Your stand is,Why check the E-mails after paying £100?? I have no problems with that. What is the end result, You have to get your ILR with out any hassle,that is the bottom line. I don't mind going throug any hard ship in going through to get that.I went through that expeerience.nce you get your ILR,you will understand, it's all the stress bloody worth it. When you experience that feeling then let me know.

Due to high demand of PEO appointment an applicant certainly need to be extra careful especially in now a days until the time of appointment.
