Note:
Received Call from Case worker on 6th Feb asking about missing biometric Details of my Daughter. I've explained the situation. He said that the case has been approved and he will post all the paper works and asked me to write him once we enroll my daughter's biometric letter with correct DOB. Then he will initiate the issuing of BRP.

The case was handled by Temporary Migration Workflow team. I did not expedite the Case.

Received the paper works today with approval letters. Even the approval letter for my daughter has the wrong DOB. I will ask the case worker to amend it when i Send him a reminder after enrolling Biometrics with correct DOB letter.

13. Date (new) leave to remain valid from: 13 FEB 2016
14. Date BRP received: 15 MAR 2013

Note: BRP had to be returned as UKBA wrongfully gave me a 2 year extension when I was entitled to a 3 year extension. Returned it to them with a letter explaining and a new one came in the mail with the correct expiry date. It was annoying, but at least there was little fuss and UKBA sorted it out for me.

A long wait...

Post by mayprivate » Mon Jan 28, 2013 3:31 pm

We haven't heard any news since we did the Biometric enrollment. We have already waited for the documents return more than 3.5months. I am afraid we need to wait for another 2.5 months sothe total extension process possibly needs half year or even more. I feel very frustrated.
