Hi, I am just wondering how this people work. @ mrnvisa your fee got deducted on 18th and you recd your acknowledgement letter on 18th (I think dated 18th) and I got my fee deducted on 13th and my acknowledgement letter was dated 17th which I recd on 20th (after 4 days). This means we can't make any guess there could be 4-5 days up or down to what you expect from general. But strange this time when I need it soon it is getting late than everyone else.

What I am imagining their process is like this -
They put all application in group and process it in group. We are in same group (doesn't matter 2-3 days early or late) and now for our group they started releasing Bio-letter and some of them are send on Friday and ours might be send on Monday and we could get it by Wednesday as they send it by second class post. Let see if it come tomorrow ... trying to be positive we will get it soon ...

Also those whose letters were sent out on Friday are lucky as they got benefit of Saturday being counted as working day for royal mail.

Thanks! For sharing your experiences. Please update as you get your Bio done.

What you said is True, There is no proper way we can guess, we just need guess roughly 1 week + or - to others.

Is there any timeline to give bio metrics once we receive letter.Or its upto us when we go and give?

No idea about timeline to submit detail, but that is important point as in case if things get mishandled by royal mail and we could get suffer. Did You recd ur Bio Letter?
I am still waiting ... this delay is pushing me day by day in danger zone of chances being not able to attend my conference.

Applying by post

An applicant making a postal application will
be sent a letter notifying him/her of the need to
make arrangements for himself/herself and any
dependants applying with him/her to have their
biometric features recorded.
The applicant must record their biometric
features within 15 working days of the date of
this letter. The letter will set out the options
available. The options will include booking
an appointment at the Home Office Biometric
Enrolment Centre and may include the option
to go to at a Post Office.

Please put your Biometric done date in the reference number column.
