Hi, I'm Indian and have lived in UK for nearly 45 years, with 'Indefinite Leave to Enter' status. I sent off an application for a No Time Limit BRP to the Home Office last week and received a receipt today saying it would take 6 months to process. I have to travel to India on the 21st and withdrew my application today. But they're saying I should get my documents, including passports that I need for travel, back within 20 working days. Is there any way that I can hurry it up or at least know when I can expect it - as I am going to be spending the next couple of weeks stressing and may lose the money I paid out for my ticket. Please can you advise. Thanks Annie
Thank you for your answer, it has already alleviated some of the worry, however if it hasn't arrived near the time of my travel, is there anyway that I can go in person to collect the documents? And if so how long should I wait before I try to do this? I live in Edinburgh and am flying from London. The last day I could receive the documents would be Fri 21 March, as I due to fly out on Mon 24th. Thanks Annie
ps. I'm assuming that I write to the caseworker at the Croydon Centre, and not the Liverpool address on my receipt letter?
Just one more thing. After I had sent the form and passports to the address they stated on the form - it was their Durham office - I had to send more supporting documents separately the next day to Croydon as that's where they said my application would be reviewed.
The application receipt came addressed from Liverpool. So my thinking is that I should send my letter with evidence and special delivery envelope to Croydon and copy to Liverpool? What do you think? I just want to get the address right and not cause any more delay than necessary.
