hi all,

I applied on the 16th of September and called the HO this am. They told me my application was completed yesterday and is my documents were to be dispatched to another department and my passport should be received by the end of next week.

any thought on that?

thanks

Just Spoke to HO & been told that a decision is been made on my application & it's been sent back to me this afternoon and I should receive it in next 2-3 days. Judging by the last few posts, it seems that many applications were posted out at the same time?

Next couple of days will be hellish :( Let's hope for good news :)

I am switching from WP to Tier 1. It is really weird that they processed with many applications in the same time.

Jay4you, what would like to know is what are the next steps following the completion of my application? did they tell you would be receiving in a couple of days? For me, it is end of next week :((((((

same docs; what did they tell you when you called them? I suspect them to say to everyone It is completed in order to avoid peole chasing them

madihi11 - I'm sooo excited to hear that you are getting your things back!! I applied on the 16th of Sept as well and am switching from WP -> Tier 1. I'm not usually an impatient person but I have found this waiting experience rather stressful at times even though i have not been waiting for so long. I've already have already woken up a few times in the night because I had a nightmare that my visa was declined. It's crazy stuff because I never thought it would disturb my sleep!! I don't stress about it during the day, its in the night when I am unconscious.

Oh i called the work permit numjber on the BIA site. I've been lucky so far becauase all the CC people have been really nice.... i think its because i have a really sweet girly voice ;)

U only applied 2 weeks ago............. wait for alleast another month and then think about calling HO. there is no need to call them already as nothing must have happend to ur case yet. dnt put too much load on the HO CC and let other people get through to contact center number who have been waiting for much longer time.

heya Madihi11

No, I did not get my passport back. I am going to wait 2 weeks from the 10th Oct (when my case got assigned to a CW) before I call them.

When was your case assigned to a CW?

hi Jessies,

the guy over the phone told me your application was completed. I was so excited that I forgot to ask him what that means.

If anyone knows, that could be of great help

Hye aMadahi11 - I am not sure if they tell you over the phone, some CCs do and some CCs don't. Call them tomorrow and see what they say) When did your case get assigned to a CW?

I am going to delay calling them because if I knew it my case was completed ( as Happy as I would be!!!) it would give me an anxiety attack waiting for the post. I would rather get an unexpected post than have an emotional rollercoaster waiting for it - but that's just me :) Good luck to others btw.
