After enduring the nightmare of securing a PEO application, we finally managed to get the appointment for Cardiff PEO. We arrived in Cardiff one day prior to the appointment date. All documents were xeroxed and filed. We were making two applications - Main applicant and one dependent.
We arrived half an hour early to the PEO. Got through the security check in just under 5 minutes. After waiting for nearly 45 minutes, the case worker took us in and explained to us about the procedure. He din't care much about the folders or post-it on the documents. He mentioned about the price hike for dependents. We preferred not to comment much about the issue. He asked us to submit our documents and go have a tour of the city center and get back to the office by 2:30 PM.
We were asked to give the Biometric before we left. Finished Biometric in 10 minutes. You will need to fill a form at the Biometric which asks details like where was the last time you got your biometric etc
Main applicant in our case had two spent convictions - One for speeding and the other - LC20 (driving on indian license after a year). We did mention both of these in the application. One tip is here is don't try to hide anything in the application.
At 2:30 we got a call asking us to come in to the PEO. A wait of 10 minutes and an officer called our names and handed the approval letter. No questions, No interviews. He told us that our BRP's will be couriered within a week.
Overall, Cardiff PEO was a pleasant experience. Staff are friendly. There is no photo booth in the PEO so please be prepared with your photographs and don't wait till the last minute.
Main applicant -
1) Passport, BRP
2) Salary statements - 12 months
3) Bank statements - 12 months
4) Employment letter
1) Marriage certificate
2) Council tax demand form for proof of co habitation
3) Driving license for address proof.
Although the officer did not ask for xerox copies, we did submit them. Guess it was helpful to them as they did not return any of xeroxed documents back.
Thanks to this forum as we did follow few tips and found it very helpful.
