I don't know the final decision yet, hoping it is good. Definitely call them. Also, ask them where you are in the process (with primary case worker, being reviewed, etc.) Let me know where you guys are in the process! :)

When I mailed them regarding my reference number,this is what I got:
Dear Peeyush

Thank you for your email

I am pleased to inform you your application has been received and is currently under consideration

HSMP applications can take between 5 and 14 weeks to clear
I hope this is helpful.

I dont know what does it mean ??

Dear fortordtwobuck

Have you gone through the entry clearance process in the US ? I'm doing so by post through the consulate in NY, and it seems that one is required to submit the online application, passport, photo, and the approval letter.

However, on the britainusa.com website, it also says 'It is your responsibility to satisfy the entry clearance officer that you meet all the criteria of the category under which you are applying.' Does this mean that one should submit all the supporting documents that were submitted in support of the initial application ? That would seem awfully excessive to me, but I am worried that they are implicitly expecting certain documents to be submitted for review.

May I ask what you did ? Many thanks.

Gordon -

Yes, you absolutely MUST provide all of the documents that you sent in your initial application (along with the approval letter). This is what I sent:

1) HSMP Application Documents
2) Passport
3) Application printout with photo (I also included an extra photo that wasn't cropped down in case I cropped too much)
4) Financial documents (Bank and investment statements)
- My bank statements
- IRA statements
- Savings account statement
- Also stated in application that my parents would be helping out with application

Did you use an agency to help you fill out the application? If so, which one? In live in Tennessee. I just found out my application was rejected, probably on salary evidence, even though I know I qualify. Apparently I need help. [email protected]
