zimba cant we do anything about inhuman behaviour of the HO ?? there must be something , 26 week inself is too much but 52 weeks and no reply is not acceptable.

Question is we are not asking HO to provide free or subsidised service we are paying more than the cost still we are treated this way ?

Can Gurus Please advise

I have applied for ILR under Tier 1 Entrepreneur (50k) as a Team in January 2019.

My wife who was also qualified for ILR applied along with me. I have got UK born son who was now 4 years old I haven't applied anything for him as he was born in UK.

It has been More than 1 YEAR and no response from UKVI. In August 2019 after escalating issue via local MP I have received a letter saying that they are waiting checks to complete from other government agency which I predict its HMRC.

Apart from that no update - All my text returns ,PAYEE all are up to date.

I'm following my local MP but no response. I'm really helpless, tired and don't know what to do.

I do have Family back home and I do have concerns back home


Gurus like Zimba,can you please advise how to proceed in this situation
Hi rajrea, oh oh can't believed your decision is still pending. I'm in the same boat, they have sent a letter to local MP and said the same thing government checks :(
Try to keep chasing them, send emails, letters and twitter posts on UKVI handler. I can feel the pain of waiting for this long as I'm doing the same and now over 10 months. I will suggest you, as I'll do the same in 2 weeks PAP letter. Atleast they have to answer that letter with reasoning, best of luck to you and me !! Thanks

It’s really unfortunate that people can be made to go through frustration like this. You just have to keep calling them until they also become tired of your calls and answer you. It is quite frustrating to say the least.

Your frustration is totally understandable however the advice remains the same. I am afraid you need to wait to hear back from UKVI.

Thank you Zimba for your reply
