    ILR processing times.

    Post by handyal on 23/03/11, 04:41 pm

    10 days ago I posted Lings ILR application.

    After 7 days I received an acknowledgement letter from the UKBA:
    "Thank you for the application for the above named person on Form SET (M). It will now be passed to a casework unit"

    Above that line they give you a reference number, then the name of the applicant, who is..............Alan Fallows ???

    Typo error ? Must be ! As a precaution though I rang the UKBA. Probably is a typo error I was told, however you should ring back in 1 MONTH when the details should then be on our system.

    I had rather hoped the application would be completed in a month.
    Currently, they are completing 95% of ILR applications in 6 MONTHS, I was happily told !!!
    (Lets hope we're not one of the unlucky 5%)

    The letter is apparently automatically sent ONCE they have secured your payment, so the good news is my 900 cheque has been cashed and in their bank........but they can't find us on the system for another month. confused

    Hello Alan,
    What a poor show they put on for genuine law abiding folk.
    How can they just make so many mistakes, how can the persons in responsible positions justify their, and their subordinates poor work performance.

    This is a real sorry tale for the UKBA.

    I am dreading when it comes to Fay putting in all her documentation for her spouse visa.
    I know were just going to be in the last 5%.

    Without disclosing what it says in the Ombudsman's draft report I can tell you that my wife applied for her ILR on 28th October 2009. The UKBA took 870 out of my account on 12th November 2009. ILR was granted on 15th January 2010. Her passport arrived back on 18th January 2010. Twelve weeks!

    Her son applied for his NTL stamp to be put into his new passport on 22nd January and 200 was taken out of my account the following week. We never got an acknowledgement letter from the UKBA: Nine weeks later we still await the return of the passport with the NTL stamp. Since he already has ILR they only have to check this on their computer and stamp the new passport with no further checks so why does it take so long? It is obviously inconvenient for him to be without his passport for months while it lies in a cupboard somewhere at the UKBA.

    12 weeks is about the time frame I was expecting.

    It would also be a good idea if the UKBA also included in their acknowledge letter that while the application is being processed, the applicant is still legally entitled to work in the UK. That could save a lot of explanations to the boss for those who are working, or seeking work.

    Thank you Chris,

    I know we should always look on the bright side, but some times this gets up our "false hopes"

    I would like to think when our document pack arrives on the "responsible " UKBA persons desk, that the person IS RESPONSIBLE.

    We will see.

    According to the UKBA website 95% of all ILR applications are completed within 6 months.
    According to a UKBA member of staff I spoke to on 23/3/11 95% of ILR applications are completed within 6 months.

    Guess what ?
    Suprise, suprise ! (As Cilla used to say).
    On wednesday 4/5/11 Ling received her passport and her ILR Visa.
    It took just over 6 weeks to process.
    She is now a permanent resident of the UK cheers

    One slight drawback - her ESOL certificate wasn't enclosed with the returned documents. bounce

    Congratulations to Alan & Ling.

    Now the struggle of trying to recover the ESOL certificate. I wonder if UKBA will claim that it was in the envelope when it left them and say it must have fallen out or been stolen while in the care of Royal Mail???? LOL

    Lings ESOL certificate was returned by the UKBA 2 days after I reported it was missing from the returned documents.

    Ling is now a happy bunny albino .
