I sent them mail few days ago asking why I received second letter, reference number and receipt for my application, but I didn't receive anything in respect of my children's application since we submitted our application at the same time and was received the same day. Here is their reply:


Thank you for your email. Please note that minor applications are dealt with in the different section then adult applications. Once the initial assessment of your children's applications has taken place you will receive
your application numbers and your receipts for your application fees. Your patience in this matter is appreciated.
