Post by sweetgirl » Tue Dec 11, 2012 12:29 pm

I had submitted visa application for extension along with one dependent application on 12.11.2012. I did received an acknowledgement letter within a week but till date haven't received my bio-metric letter. I am really worried now :( :( . I am just wondering that did anyone applied for visa during the same time frame and have they received their visa or not.

We are on the same boat.

If yes, then what : Birth Certificate (Low risk applicant, wasn't required in the initial application)

Date of receipt of Bio Matric Card : Waiting

Normally I wouldn't mind waiting for the documents patiently but I got invited to perform a solo concert in a very prestigious venue in helsinki on the 15th of february. I don't want to miss it and the opportunity is rare. I am very depressed at the moment. Also according to the UKBA 'helpline', being a dual passport holder doesn't help.

With my experience, the backlog is the problem. Once they get to look at your application, the process is actually pretty fast.
