ILR application update questions
« on: December 02, 2020, 03:52:09 PM »
Hi all,

Hope everyone is doing well.

Got some questions about ILR please.

We've submitted my wife's ILR mid September, and had the UKVCAS appointment just over two months ago.

The government page says that service standard for ILR is 6 months. I've tried to contact their visa progress phone line, but it won't let me through if I choose the option that we're still within the service standard time limit. Is there any other way to query the application status?

Also, my wife's FLR will expire mid December. Is it going to be an issue if we don't receive a reply to the ILR application by then?

Thanks.

As long as you submitted a valid application before the expiration of the current visa, her current status is protected under section 3c.and her current rights continue until her ILR is issued.

Not much to do but wait, I'm afraid.

Thanks larabee.

Unfortunately that seems to be the only option :(

Keep getting paranoid that we've deleted an email by accident or something.

Keeping fingers crossed.
