Hi,

I have not received my Biometric letter, and my money has been deducted on 11-March-2014 and got an Acknowledgement letter on 14-March-2014 dated.

As I notice many people gets biometric letter on same day or next few days and it's been more than 10 days so I am worried. Is there a way to contact them ?

Sorry If I am putting this question in wrong thread ! But I am now getting helpless as my employer is asking for my visa extended as it comes to an end on 25-April-2014.

Please help me.

Regards.

As per my knowledge, As of now it will take max 15 days, So wait for one more week. Regarding employer, you can show the ack letter, that was sufficient for your legal stay in UK.

Thank you very much.

I called them up, seems they posted my BRP letter to my older address, although I got my acknowledgment letter to my current address. Also I have mentioned my current address to be used for all communication. Not sure how they resolve the accountability for this mess up. They are going to re-send me my BRP letter, in meantime to check my luck will go to old address and check with the person who lives there and if thankfully they have preserve that letter would be great. Otherwise will have to wait for the re-sent letter to arrive to me.

Thank you for help.
