Re: @sojan

Thanks for sharing the information. When you filled the extension form, it asks you to provide the biometric details. I assume since your previous tier1 visa was issued when this biometric work permit did not exist, you left that section blank? Can you please confirm this, as I am in a similar situ...

there is a lot of confusion here about ILR process. I don't understand why are people applying for early extension (2 years) in some cases. What are you trying to achieve? All you are doing is wasting your money and worrying over nothing. My ILR is due in 2012 and to be honest I am not a single bit...

Just got a news from my friend..
he enrolled for biometrics from post office.. charged 16GBP per person, but easier way of giving rather than waiting for PEO's

only worrying thing is how safe are the details with post office.

receiving letter for biometrics just means they started ur document review.
It doesn't guarantee any success/failure

Looks like early renewal has caught some attention. My friend got all paperwork back advising to send for extention 28 days before expiry. Thankfully they didn't deduct his money!!!
