@CULLINAN, have you received your ceremony invitation?
Yes, I received it on Dec 18th.

@fivem An enquiry can be made but most likely no response will be sent before 6 months are over so it is not recommended. I am at 4.5 months. I might send an enquiry by end of this week due to this survey email mystery though. will be keeping a close eye on what you do and when you send the email -...

Re: **** COVID19 Biometrics appointments and UKVCAS ***** (Discuss here ONLY)

All, I have been a little quiet observing the thread. It seems people are struggling to find appointments, let alone book them. If these are difficult to come by, why does HO/UKVCAS continuously send emails for people to book and attend appointments in 2months? Surely it should be free rein and not ...

Hi All, Just my two pence - Applied Sept 3rd, IDV upload Sept 12. Got the approval email 21st Oct. Only used the IDV, did not go for in-person submission ( aka dual submission). There are few others similar to my timescale. So, if you applied only through IDV, I don't think there is anything to pan...
