Hi Piyush123,

Yes, I had forwarded the UT request on 12th Nov. Initially i was confirmed that the UT has been accepted, later i was told that it has been forwarded to the caseworking team. Lately, on the new CC no, they dont confirm anything about the UT request.

Your application has been outstanding for a while, have you had any communication with the UKBA, any verifications or has it been the cold dark silence for you as well??

Also, did you apply with the HSMP approval letter, in theory this should have made your application quicker?

Regards,

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.

Hi GJ10,

Did you hear something from HO on ur application?
I'm still waiting for mine.
I have sent the UT request on 21st Nov by post. CC also confirmed that they received it and forwarded my UT request to case worker team on 22nd Nov. But still I havn't received any acknowledgement mail from HO. CC knows nuthing more then that. They just say that keep waiting.

I do have applied with the HSMP letter but still they are taking lot of time. Donno what they are doing with the application. I also dont think that they have verified my application on any level.

Please give me updates from ur side?


Thanks

Hi Piyush123,

Still in the same boat. No reply so far, have been calling twice a day for the last week or so. I have flights booked for this Thursday, have sent them the flight tickets and still havent heard anything.

I am not sure, what takes these guys so long. I have been following Trackit.com as well. Seems like a lot of people from the September batch are still waiting.

I wish best of luck to all of us.

Thanks & regards,

Hi nitind_k,

You definitely need to get your marriage certificate converted. Also, did you get the marriage endorsed on your passport?

Good luck,

Hi GJ10,

My situation is still the same. Havn't heard anything from HO. The same answers from CC.

I also check Trackit. But it seems to me that people who have applied in Sep'08 are mostly through.Only a very few cases (including us :( ) are still pending.

Regards.

I wonder why people have stoped posting their timelines and feedback on this thread!!!!

In earlier days, members also use to give their feebback in case of refusals/unsuccessful applications however it has been quite a lot of time since I read about any unsuccessful applciation!

What do you think members? Why is it so?

1. Are there not many people applying for Tier1(Gerneal) these days?
2. Have people stopped posting their feedback?
3. Are all applications going thru successfully?
4. There is no one coming for help/consultation even in case of refusal?
5. Is new point based system (Tier1) so transparent that people do not need this thread any more?

I have been thinking about the answers of above but could not think any so decided to contact you guys..... what are your views..

I think 'Super' made application overseas from New Zeland, however we are mainly talking about 'in country applications' in this thread.

GENERAL WORD OF ADVICE

Post by GJ10 » Tue Dec 09, 2008 4:46 pm

HI ALL,

CAN YOU PROVIDE GREATER DETAILS WHEN YOU POST YOUR MESSAGES, LIKE...

- CHANGE IN VISA CATEGORY (STUDENT, WORK PERMIT, SPOUSE...Etc)
- OUT OF UK THEN WHICH COUNTRY AND WHICH EMBASSY
- CLEARER TIMELINES
- ANY OTHER FORM OF COMMUNICATION RECIEVED ON APPLICATION

THIS FORUM IS AN INFORMATION SHARING GROUP AS WELL AS A SUPPORT GROUP....

GREATER INFORMATION HELPS BETTER UNDERSTANDING AND SUPPORT.....

REGARDS,

GJ10

Hi,

I am planning to apply for tier1 application by end of this month.

I am having a doubt in my pervious earning section.
I planning to show my pay slips from January 2008 to Dec 2008, but in the month of December 2008 month no money is credited to my Indian salary because there was a due from the company and company is recovered the due from my December month salary. I am having the salary slip with all the details and it has mentioned the total earning was recovered towards the company Due and the net pay as 0.
In this case I can show the pervious earnings from Dec 2007 to Dec 2008 instead of showing from January 2008 to Dec 2008.

Please clarify the above point.


Regards
Kandasamy

Hi Kandasamy,

The points for earnings are based on the gross salary and not on the net salary. So even thou you may have a 0 as net pay, you gross pay would be considered for Dec 08.

In my opinion it would be safe to show you Dec 08 salary and claim points as per your gross salary. Please make sure you highlight the gross and net salary figures on your payslip and the credited amount in your bank statements. Net salary and bank account figures should match.

Hi hussainkothari,

As you mentioned if I am showing the Dec2008 pay slip then in my bank statement for the month of Dec 2008 there won’t be any entry for salary credited for this month. Whether they will consider my gross salary, if salary is not credited to my account.

Regards
Kandasamy

"Awaiting further consideration" ????

Post by parag23 » Fri Jan 30, 2009 4:17 pm

Hi, GJ and Piyush,

I applied for the tier 1 general on the 19th of NOV and got a reciept for the same from the HO on the 25th NOV 2008.

Well for a long time they were saying when i calld there 087 number that your application is under consideration now they say "it is under further consideration". I mean I am really frustrated with their way of working. Does anyone know how long more I need to wait for the same.???????
