BRP enrolment letter dated 4 Feb 2017 received on 7 Feb 2017

Following this complex issue letter I checked my whole application and found one mistake on my application form however I submitted 3 additional correct copies. Since the form was filled manually and the additional copies were from my excel the latter ones were correct.

Mistake corrected+cover letter made+CH directed towards documents submitted already(correct ones)+additional copies submitted dated 16 March 2017.

Application decided on online portal last update -14 March 2017 indicating application posted

IHS Partial refund- received on 17 June 2017(future dated 19 June 2017 on bank transaction)

Awaiting decision letter from DX: checked with them on phone: no records yet
