Biometric Resident Permit---How Does It Work?
Posted 05 November 2012 - 10:48 PM
If my application is successful, instead of having a visa in my passport, I will be issued with a Resident/Identity Card which will have my status on it, and I will need to then register my biometrics.

c. Having your biometrics enrolled
If you are required by law to apply for an identity
card, you must make arrangements to have your
biometrics enrolled as part of the application process.
I can't seem to see where, in the FLR(O) paperwork it says where to include your arrangements for enrolling your biometrics?

We recieved our letter from UKBA inviting us to do our Biometrics.
This was 11 weeks after sending our forms in.
I am now concerned about how long it will take from here. I know someone who said it was 8 months from doing her Biometrics and linked me to another forum where it seemed to imply they were still dealing with Biometrics from Oct last year.
So I guess I am after some advice.
I have unavoidable travel plans mid-May. If worse comes to worse can I request my documents back and then apply in person?
Or if you have any advice about waiting times, that would be great.
I checked on Ukba's website before sending the forms off and it said up to 3 months....not 6-8!

You can't withdraw the application and travel if you won't have leave to remain when you intend to return. Whether you could apply for a visa from outside the UK and whether that would be a good idea depends on your previous status and the basis of the current application but it probably isn't.
