UKVCAS IDV app

Hello everyone, For anyone who received the email stating that their biometrics will be re-used, have you been further contacted to provide/upload your photo and other documents via the IDV app? I check for it daily on the Google Play store but cannot locate it, so it looks like it not ready? Thanks!

Re: Surinder Singh Settled Status Paper Application:

Thanks Mike. I'm concerned that the COA have an 'expiry' after 6 months of being issued. If you follow the progress on this, you'll see they ask if the COA is less than 6 months. https://www.immigrationstatuscheck.service.gov.uk. so what now when the 6 months is up, will they issue another letter? ...

The question relates to an EU (non British) citizen whose family member followed the EEA EU rules route and not the UK immigration rules spouse visa route.

Re: Advice on moving to the UK

@Morbeous, we too lived in Ireland and I know it can be tough over there. But I agree with iwolga, if you'll leave and come to the UK, you'll have to start over. Try and rally through until your wife gets Irish citizenship; 2 years is better than 6 for your wife to get settled/citizenship here. As f...
