I never vote before as I wasn't interested in it - never ever! However this discussion is interesting. What makes a good party? Depends on what you find important. It seems that you care a lot on the economy, such as the house price. The recent recession is a global disaster. It would happen no mat...

This is an interesting topic in this forum. I never thought "buying property" could be "immigration related". Hee hee... I am not a financial adviser either however we have to think: are we sure the property will go up in the foreseeable future? Say you pay around £10k per year for renting a flat, ...

Re: gap issue

no it does not count as a gap. Because you sent your application before your visa expired. For example If you were to sent your application on the 12th of december then you would have had 12 days gap (from 30th of Nov until 12 Dec) the date you post your application got to be before your visa expir...

taylondon, it depends on what you meant by "gap". One of my visa expired on 30Nov03 and at that time the university help me to extend my visa by post. The application was sent before 30Nov03 however the new visa was stamped on 16Dec03. Does this count as a gap?

Re: ILR Processing

The good part of UKBA is that they are making ever step to strengthen UK workforce by eliminating people who do not deserve to be the part of UK economy. Comments are welcome. MKI Agreed. This could be part of the function of UKBA. However "strengthen UK workforce" does not have to bring in the lon...

oluwa112, I know how you feel... I simply typed "10 years long residence process time" in Google and found the email. It doesn't look fake to me. I have a friend who made her application based on 2yrs spouse Visa - and the processing time was more than 12 months.

What he could see is the information in the database and therefore he couldn't provide anything more. The rules are not designed by us and th...

You only need to study 4 chapters to pass the test - no tricky questions. Trust me, it is much easier than passing a driving test in the UK.

oluwa112, Thanks for your advice.
I checked my Acknowledgement letter today. The signatoury is "UK Border Agency". There isn't a name on the letter I am afraid.
Yesterday and today are the postal strikes in London. I won't be receiving anything until Monday.
