How do you know when your applications were assigned to a caseworker? did you call a number to check?

Many thanks for your prompt response

As I am a pre-Nov 2006 HSMP participant, my case was decided on the JR judgement even though I applied on a Tier - 1 form, fulfilled all the requirements and had 120 points. But I am happy for this to end successfully which ever way.

I dont know why did it take the HO so long to post the visas.

I am grateful to every one here for their kind support and guidance through out.

Thank you and best wishes

Waiting for the post and the last minute thrill.

Hope it is good news for you.

By the way, did you call 0114 **** number? then press 2, then press 1?
Every time after hearing the answer machine telling me the current processing date, it drops the line. Should I press 2 for general query?

Thank you guys. Let me also hope for some good news.

Yes i have called 0114******* number. Pressed 2 for Tier1 PBS and then pressed 2 for general enquiry and then pressed 1 for enquiry regarding HSMP Judicial Review. Though my application is not HSMP judicial review, managed to get the response from them.

Hi Sep01,

I called them yesterday around midday. The CR told me my documents have been posted. Although when I called earlier yesterday they told me my application was still under consideration and they could not give any specific time frame for it to be resolved.

So in short their systems seem to be a bit slow in terms of having current status.

Best Regards
