I have not received any receipt. I only sent the form 2weeks ago and included my bank details in a space provided in it. I check my bank account to make sure I have money in it everyday to see if the have charged me. but unfortunately they haven't .

Hi

Thanks for your patience.

I wouldn't worry too much just yet. The UKBA can take a while to acknowledge and send your confirmation of receipt.

Two weeks is not unusual but they do generally take the money out within three. If it gets to four weeks then it might be a bit of a concern but provided you have entered your account details correctly it will come out.

The position is that once the ukba accept that you are married to an EEA national and that the marriage is genuine then they have to grant you a visa (residence card). So, provided you have proven your marriage to them and they have no reason to doubt it then you will be fine.

Kind regards
