I applied for the tier 1 200k route and paid the added value service to keep my passport on 10th March, Biometrics done 13th March and interview on 10th April. I received on 11th June this email:
“Our office will now proceed to the next stage of your application. To complete this process we require you to undertake the following steps:

2. Please also submit a copy of this e-mail so that the Visa Application Centre will accept your passport.
3. If you require a TB certificate for travel, please ensure this is up to date and valid.
You will be contacted when a decision has been made and your passport is ready to be collected.

I returned my passport on 12th June.
Has anybody got that before? And does it mean that I got approved? I was thinking if it’s a refusal then they wouldn’t ask for my passport back.
