Tier 1 (General) extension application processing timelines

Post by geriatrix » Sun Jul 18, 2010 11:17 pm

Please do not post in this thread if you are in UK under an immigration category other than HSMP / Tier 1 (General) and have made an application to change (switch) to Tier 1 (General). Instead, post your timeslines here.

Interested members can post their Tier 1 (General) FLR (extension) application timeslines here for the benefit of others. This will reduce clutter on the database too so you will be doing a good cause.


Please do not forget to include the following details in your post:
1. Current vignette:
2. Date of expiry of current leave:
3. Number of dependants applying at same time:
4. Date application posted:
5. Date application received at UKBA:
6. Date payment debited:
7. Payment mode :
8. Acknowledgement letter received:
9. Biometric letter received:
10. Date of biometrics enrolment:
11. Date of approval:
12. Date of return of passport and other documents:
13. Date (new) leave to remain valid from:
14. Date BRP received: Awaited



Do not make more than one post in the topic. If writing initial post before a decision / passport is received (i.e.- giving details of points 1 to 5 only), please edit the original post to update - do not create a new post for every update. This will help members looking for approx. timeslines to figure out end-to-end processing time of a given application(s) at one place itself.
Remember the page number of this topic that you are making your post in .. or .. use the search function to find your post in this topic.




Please refrain from chattering in this topic. To keep it high-value, please just read it and only post when you have an update to provide (timelines only).
Queries, pleasantries, off-topic posts, duplicate posts, multiple posts relating to the same application, request for updates, posts enquiring about current timelines, etc. are not be posted, will be deleted without notice, and members posting irrelevant posts in this topic that require moderators to waste their time in cleaning up the topic may have their access restricted.



We thank you for your understanding.



regards
