Re: Citizenship Ceremony cancelled due to Covid-19

Just had my ceremony today - Surrey council. Probably last one before they move to virtual ceremonies for everyone.

Good luck to you all.

Re: Citizenship Ceremony cancelled due to Covid-19

Hi,
Mine is Surrey.

Re: Citizenship Ceremony cancelled due to Covid-19

I guess further delays caused by Royal Mail (reported in the news today) don’t help either.. just add to the misery!

Re: Citizenship Ceremony cancelled due to Covid-19

Hello all,
Have been following patiently..
Approval Sep 30th.. no invitation letter yet.
Surrey council and they don’t book ceremonies unless you’ve received your invitation letter. I don’t even know if they are still doing ceremonies.

Can only keep waiting..

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

UKVCAS ditching the IDV app for future applications can mean one of two things: UKVCAS want to restore their stream of income (tough economic times!) OR There are serious problems with IDV app! I hope it’s not the latter and I hope we don’t hear one day the all applicants who used the IDV app need t...

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

Sole applicant. Applied June 11th. Submitted documents as soon as it was permitted. Have EU settlement status for 1yr +. Still no invite and not able to log in. Still confused and frustrated. If anyone can figure out why this is and what the pattern is for sending out invites.. I’d be very impressed...

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

Someone in another group reported receiving an invitation to us the IDV app which they did yesterday!!
They applied in March

Very promising so let’s keep waiting.. don’t understand why invitations are also being done in phases!! Why don’t they send to everyone and UKVI can process in date order!!!

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

I am also not opting out of biometric reuse and will simply wait for the app.. reason.. not sure! :D Just seems right to get the stored data re-used without the hassle of obtaining everything again.. In fact, I hope this process gets adopted for the future “post-COVID”.. will save everyone lots of t...

Nothing else can be done, so I hear you.
This will eventually be over one way or another!

Just wondering over how many days do we expect the biometric re-use emails to keep coming?!! And in which order are they being sent out?!! Applied on June 11th and nothing yet.. applicants with later dates have received their emails.. clearly this is not the fair process claimed and surely it can be...
