I am glad I asked second question. I sent the email to BRPError team. Now I'll send letter to CW postal address - which I believe should be Croydon PEO again?

Thanks for your reply

Update: Got reply from BRP Error Team same day and they've advised to contact CW by writing a letter in case I want to dispute the expiry date.
They also provided the CW's address.

Hi,

I was just think how 245CB applies to people who got their initial T1 in (say) Oct-2010. That time he/she must have got it for 2 years and then their 1st extension in Oct-2012 should have been for 3 years. This is all known and confirmed. But as per 245CB shouldn't he/she have got her initial T1 for 3 years? Did 245CB came into existence later?

Although this is not my case but I am trying to understand this rule in it full context.

Any thoughts?

Regards

Will they agree to replace BRP card after 50 days of reporting the problem?
Ideally they should. They had asked me to send the BRP cards at "my earliest convenience". You can ask the question when you receive your reply.
Secondly, I have sent them an email reporting this problem but it that sufficient or I should write a letter as well?
Who have you sent the email to? I had first sent it to the BRPError team and then they asked me to send it to my case workers postal address. So I wrote a letter and they replied it to me over email.

Hi,

I got a call from caseworker acknowledging the mistake and they asked me to post (special delivery) only BRP card (no passport) to Case Worker's PEO address.

Did you do the same or you sent back to BRP team in Bristol?

Cheers!

Update: My friend who recently applied for his Tier 1 2nd extension (postal, application, his initial grant was before 6th April 2010) got his extension for 2 years.

He wrote to the case worker (via post to the Sheffied address) referring to 245CB and that he should have been awarded 3 years instead.

He got a response yesterday from caseworker that according to 245CB, it was correct that he was granted 2 years, as his last leave granted immaterial of whether it was post 6th April 2010, was indeed granted based on rules in place prior to 6th April 2010. (not the exact text, but in similar lines)

I think ORelly's point makes sense. However, why are they amending it for some and not others when it's disputed? It does not appear to be consistent.

I think it depends on the understanding of the caseworker. There are instances where a person who qualified (and applied) based on points before the Apr 2010 criteria but eventually got the visa at a later date in April, they have granted the extension for 3 years instead of 2 despite the initial visa being of 3 yrs. So my understanding is they have looked at the initial visa stamp date instead of application date. :?

Given that the first grant and first extension is either 3+2 yrs (old rules) or 2+3 yrs(new rules), it doesn't seem fair, that the 2nd extension is 3 yrs for applicants under new rules, whereas, 2 years for applicants under old rules.

Add to that, case workers are not consistent in their understanding of 245CB.

Just for others info, I got 3 years of extension for my second Tier-1(G) extension application at PEO Solihull. So it is 3+2+3

Update 2: My friend then wrote back to the case worker, stating that he had made this inference about 245CB, based on the experiences of people listed in this thread (and provided a reference to this thread) and also quoted experience of another friend who applied along the same timeline who was granted 3 years. After this the case worker wrote back to him to return the BRP's, which my friend did, and he has now received new BRP's with a grant of 3 years.

Again 3 cheers to this forum (Moderators, respected gurus and all other members who are providing help and advice) and to all the members who are sharing their personal experiences for the benefit of others.

Cheers!

- My initial visa - Before 6th April 2010

- I also got an extension of 3+3 years rather than 2 years (1 year more).

- Wrote to the case worker. He called back and said there should not be any problem with ILR as everyone is being granted 3 years.

So I have an extra year now to make up in case of any shortage of days, so no harm.

Dear Friends,

Hope you are keeping well. I was just going through the forum and found that my Tier 1 second extension granted l was just for 2 years where as it should have been for 3 years .

I did sent an email to BRP Error team but did not receive any reply from them.

Can you please suggest what can be done . I would appreciate your response on same .

Sumit

Initial T1G visa - 09-Jun-2008 to 09-Jun-2011
1st ext (PEO) - valid until 09-Jun-2013
2nd ext (post) - valid until 19-Jun-2015

Can I argue for a year more? Or is this at the discretion of the case worker?

Thanks,
H
I applied last month and grated 2 years only. So i sent an letter to Brp Error and also to the case worker. And got 3 yrs now. but it took one more month to get my updated BRP.

Dont send an email to brperror they wont respond quickly and not helpful. It happened in my case. I would suggest, send a letter to casewoker [you can find his address in Biometric invitaion letter] and include next day special delivery cover [if you want 2 to 3 days quick response]. Then case worker will respond and request you to send BRP cards, After that it will take 1 to 2 weeks to get your BRP via DX courier.

Suresh

Can anyone please post the message / argument they wrote in their letter / email to case worker to change from 2 to 3 years? It seems they are very inconsistent. The second extension should be 3 years for everyone (given it is effectively the same visa / rights for everyone and the same High fee)

Dear Gurus and Friends,

Good Morning ! Please could you guide me on my case?

1. I entered UK in Jul 2010 with 2 years Tier1 Visa , valid till Jul 2012.
2. Then extended my Tier1 Visa for another 3 years , valid till Jun 2015
3. As of today I have totally spent 170 days out of UK
4. My Spouse entered UK on March 2013 and on and off in UK due to personal reasons. Spouse visa is also valid till Jun 2015.
5. As UKBA has announced that there will be no extensions after April 2015, should I go for extension in April 2015 or as I am eligible for ILR in Jul 2015 should I do that ?
6. What would be the case to my spouse ?
Kindly let me know

Regards
Vijay
