Congrats again! I've got a few questions for you below.
I think you have mentioned you used to phoned HO a lot querying your application progress (every 3rd day), but what exactly did they tell you?
Since you mentioned your case has been approved on 19th of March,I am wondering what did they tell you when you querying about the progress after 19th of March?
I've just phone HO, they actually didn't reject my query saying they can't provided any information. Instead, they used the system to search and the result is my case is still under consideration with caseworks.
Have you noticed any difference of their answers before and after 19th/March?
Is that ture that your query result of their system remains 'under consideration' after your passport being sent to be stamped on 19th of March??
I'd be very appreciate if you could let us know

This morning i recieved my documents back from the home office.
The letter from the home office is dated 19th of march saying that we are pleased to inform you that your application has been approved.
probably then it was sent to the passort department to be stamped which for some reason took more than a week to stamp it (maybe because of easter weekend ) .
my passport got stamped on the 1st of April and i recieved the documents today on the 3rd of April.
i had enclosed a pre-paid special delivery envelop and they sent my docs back in them.
i have been granted visa for 3 years .
so the time line for initial Tier-1 Applications looks like this if every thing is in order.
Date Applied :11th march
Reached Home office : 12th march
Debit charged: 13th March
Reference Number received :14th March ( PB2993....)
Decision : Approved on 19th March
Passport Stamped 1st April.
Docs Recieved :3rd April
what this shows is that there is a separate team handling Tier 1 application because my application was approved in 7 days as they recieved it on the 13th of march and the letter of approval has the date of 19th of march.
Ashraya hopefully your's would have been approved as well, i guess it would be matter of days before you recieve it as well.
Thank you to every one on this forum. i wish you all the very best.
