Thanks a lot Kumar for your quick reply


My application reached on 15-05-o6 but the date mentioned in the letter is 25-05-06 I paid by dd so I guess it got cleared on 25-05-06

So now may be in 2-3 weeks from now it will be decided.

you are welcome ukindia,

They mentioned Application Recieved 25 th that means they took nearly 7 to 8 working days for DD clearence....


From 25 th onwards they will take minimun 12 to 15 working days for assigning case worker once they assigned case worker then all depends on him or her, if everything is perfect documentation it will take only few hours to decide,

HO mentioned in website most of cases delayed because of poor documentation.

I heard from friends that they can spend only 3 hours per case.....

In your case If they satisfied with your documentation, you will get by the end of June 3rd week or 4th week.

not good idea to call them frequently.

thats all my openion ukindia,

regards..

kumar....

Kurtis,
They have turned around quite fast on your case.
Are you applying from within the UK ? ie are you already working there ?
Thanks.

Dear Kumar

Could you kindly tell me if you had received your passport back with HSMP stamp. How long did it take ?

I earn 1800 net amonth and has a mortgage of 1800 amonth, do u think this will hamper my chances of getting my HSMP stamped.

why do they ask about the mortgage

is it a plus factor that you have your own house and pay a mortgage or is it a negative one if you have less money to live with.

I have no dependants

your advice is greatly appreciated

cha

hello cha,

I am still waiting for result, I am expecting this week.

here anyone got result in this week

I did't see any colum regarding mortagage in HSMP Application,

The one they are asking about mortage is different application that is FLR(IED), you have to send that once you got HSMP Application Approved.

I am not quit sure why they are asking about the mortgage.

Once they approved your HSMP Application, They dont see much on your FLR(IED), All they see for FLR(IED), sufficient bank balance or good job, anyway you have good job, just send pay slips, that's enough.

My openion not good idea to tell them about mortagage, you better take some one else suggestion also before applying.

regards

kumar...

Early June applicant timeline:

Application sent: June 1, 2006

CC not yet charged.... I've heard that recently some applicants' packages were returned back because of failure to charge CC. Not sure why.

Hi Friends

I am also a May 2006 applicant. My application reached there on 23 May. I got the ref number by phoning them on last Friday - 09 June. I am yet to receive the ref number through email although I requested them on phone as well to send it by email and they confirmed my email address also.

Out of curiosity, i now intend to send them email to check my ref. number and progress of application.

May I know what email address u r using to get progress?
Would appreciate a quick response.

regards,

QE

Hi Ashish,
I have got back my docs by normal post. I did not ask for a courier pick up.

Yes they had arrived in the same folder that I had sent and all the documents were in good condition.

My application reached there on 23rd MAy and cheque was cleared on 31 May 2006.

Any progress achieved by any other May 2006 applicant?

Good luck to all of you :lol:
