Re: Submitted Online Form today - have I applied to early?

we have our Premium appointment on Friday and we will be bringing up the subject of the application date with them there, hoping they can at least make a call and see the situation. If we find out then that no, it's not a valid application for the date reason, we will request a withdrawal of the app...

It’s exactly where google maps says it is. Doesn’t have a building number but big glass window with nameage on the inside wall won’t be hard to fine.

Re: Premium Service appointment booking issue for ILR (LR)

Hi, I booked an appointment for ILR spouse same day service. The appointment is on 3rd Dec 2018. She was granted visa from 30/12/2013. Upon applying 28 days policy I see that the earliest I can apply is 2nd Dec. I called Soapra Steria and asked them about the application date. They confirmed that t...

Re: Submitted date vs Appointment date?

my only hope is that the HO will be seeing a spate of these slightly early applications this and next month as online becomes the only application method and they choose to be a little flexible as long as the appointment comes in the valid window.

the HO being flexible. Yeah right...

Can I use a 'Transaction List' signed/stamped by bank?

I am relying on a savings account for ILR financial requirement. I need to show the balance hasn't fallen below £34,600 for six months. I have a 'transaction list' PDF, generated by online banking, going back 6 months and 2 weeks, then printed out and taken into the branch and stamped and signed. It...

Re: New Appointment Centre UKVCAS

I've been waiting all week for the new centres in London to come online (Barbican, Kensington, Victoria, etc) and gave up today and booked £200 appointment at the London Premium Centre. Tried to get a free one at Croydon and nothing available until December 3rd! Which is too late for us.

the 31 December 2024 validity date is due to a requirement by the EU to restrict BRPs which do not incorporate the next generation of encryption technology.

Re: UKVCAS Super Priority Service

having paid for a 24hr decision, if they take 4-6 days with me, there's no way on earth I won't be claiming at least a partial refund, especially as it's ILR I'm going for and there'll be no further need to keep the HO sweet. :D

Re: ILR applying without B1

why are people being switched across to FLR when they are applying for ILR? I've read about 2-3 of these incidences on these forums now, yet any solicitor I spoke to said "no, we've never heard about that, it would never happen".

Is it because the old visa has expired?

Re: Submitted Online Form today - have I applied to early?

We thought about things at the weekend and have decided: 1. to go ahead with the application, not to cancel it. The main reason for this being our understanding that a rejection won't affect our chances of immediately re-applying. 2. AGAINST the cover letter. We might pen something simple ourselves,...

Re: Submitted Online Form today - have I applied to early?

I spoke with an immigration lawyer today. Summary below: 1. There is no clear guidance by UKVI about this precise situation but she leans towards "online submission date is to be considered the application date". There does seem to be more of a consensus on this board in the last day or so that this...

So you agree that there is nothing clear in the rules or guidance? I have now heard from 3 immigration solicitors this morning and they are unanimous that the current situation is very ambiguous and that there is no clear guidance as to this date question. I repeat what is included in the guidance: ...

Lacking clear black and white answers on here, I've sought advice elsewhere the guidance does appear to be somewhat contradictory and the hotline support is sometimes not accurate, in my experience.
