Hi all,

Hi All,
Hope you are well. I received the stage 2 approval email after 16 working days, from the date of submitting it through IDV app.

I received my Global Talent BRP card yesterday.
However, I couldn't find the NI number, which is supposed to be printed on the rear.

Is the NI number same as my previous BRP(Tier2 ICT)
Could you guys check yours and let me know.
Thanks,
Suriya

Your national insurance number has nothing to do with your visa and it is completely independent of your immigration status. It will always be the same; it's your personal number.

I had a query on the stage 2 VISA application, I have to put a date when I would be arriving in UK. Given the current pandemic situation, I am not 100% sure if I could move very quickly. Do you think I can put a later date on that stage 2 application? For example, if I submit stage 2 application on Jan 1st, can I put my UK arrival date as July 1st? Is there any upper limit on that?

This topic is only for stage 2 timelines and not for general questions about an application still to be made. You should post all your application questions in you existing topic you have.

You cannot request a visa start date more than 3 months in the future.

My biometric appointment at the Victoria centre was cancelled on Oct 14 because some COVID case got detected at the centre. The call centre says "someone will get in touch for a fresh appointment". There is no visibility of the future. Is there anyone else who is affected by this? Any idea of Stage 2 timelines in such circumstances?
