Dont worry mate...i am sure you will get some good news soon...There have been 3 cases in the recent past who have recieved the documents in less than 20 days...I am sure you will get some good news before 09th Nov.....I think HO is clearing all the applications at the earliest....

Good Luck!!!!!

I applied on 18th of Oct, and amount fee deducted on on 23rd . But when i see the ukba .homeoffice. gov.uk site --> HSMP-- waiting times.. it shows 5 weeks. I am woried because I have another 3 weeks for my present visa to expire.
The site also says it is updated weekly. did you see this site around the time you applied and is this page updated since then. any idea?

Hi...
Yes i applied on 09th Oct...and i was shifting from WP to Tier1....
batch was 320****

Bit surprised actually...there are lots of guys how applied in the recent past have recieved there documents in 20 days....
And for me i did not send any UT and also did not get any call from HO after approval..they directly sent all the documents to my address..i had requested them for a courier pickup, but they ignored it....
When the packet arrived, i was not there at home, they dropped a "Sorry we missed you" card...i was so restless all weekend and on Monday finally it was a good news...

I think you will get the docs back soon....Dont worry...

Ritesh,

It took an average of 20 days for a lot of us. Going by the current trend, your Tier 1 should arrive by the end of this week.

You don't have to worry about you visa expiring though, your current status is valid as long as the UKBA are processing your application or appeal.

Batch PBS319xxxxxxx WP --> Tier 1

Post by GJ10 » Wed Nov 12, 2008 11:26 am

Hi All,

I have applied for the Tier 1 general on the 25th of Sept. Its a Work Permit to Tier 1 General application. My application is from the PBS319 batch, is anybody else waiting from the PBS319 batch.

I have called the CC several times, initially i was told that my case forwarded to the caseworker on the 22nd Oct, couple of days later i was told 14th Oct and another couple of days later i was once again told it was 14th Oct.

From the past two days the CC people are not willing to give any status as all, not even asking for the PBS reference no. This is quite frustrating as this feels like sitting in the dark, with no way to get any inforamtion or update.

Is there anybody from the PBS319 batch, still waiting??

Should i send a UT request??

I also want to thank the people on the forum who provided information to prepare the tier 1 application.

Thanks & regards,

GJ10

Hi Tester,

Have applied end of September and am still to recieve any reply. I can understand your frustration. Everytime i call i hear the same old "still under consideration".

Last week, couple of times the CC operator was not even willing to take the reference no.

Today when i called i found out that the no for CC has changed, now you have to call 087 0606 7766. The people at this no are even more unco-operative then the one at the Sheffiled no.

How can they sensibly justify keeping somebody's passport for so long??

Btw: anybody who is preparing their application please take care about the Maintainence Funds. A friend of mine was rejected recently because he had £795 for 1 day in the last three months? The caseworkers follow guidance to letter, it has to be minimum £800 every single day of the last three months.

Thanks & regards,

Hi,
I'm currently in UK and on PSW and thinking to apply for T1 General. I have some doubts. Can someone kindly resolve them please.

1 > I was a fulltime student in UK since Dec 2006 till March 2008. I have worked fulltime before my studies. For my previous earnings can i show the payslips before Dec 2006?

2 > For Maintenance requirement can I show the funds from a bank outside the UK. As I have enough funds in my home account?

3> For English Language Requirement - As I hold a UK masters, is that sufficient?

Many Thanks,

Hi GJ10,


Same happened with me. When I called CC today, they said status of my application is "Awaiting Further Consideration". I asked them its meaning but they were unable to explain this and just keep repeating the same line again n again.

My application status:
WP --> Tier 1 General
Application Sent: 4th Sept
Status 19/11/2008: Awaiting Further Consideration


Have you applied for Urgent Treatment also?

Thanks.
