good evening
Big big thanks to all members of this forum. I have received by BRP card today!

Timeline:
online application 04 Apr 2019 (Standard service)
biometrics taken at Sopra Steria 17 Apr 2019
Letter from home office received with the decision 13 Aug 2019
BRP received 14 Aug 2019


over the moon !

P.S. on 13 Apr, just few days before my biometrics my mother suddenly passed away. I couldn't travel, as my biometrics appointment was booked for 17th Apr and I coudn't find any available appointment before my old BRP would expire. When at Sopra Steria i asked them if there is a chance to change application to Super Priority and pay the extra 800 then, ,but was said no. I also called Home Office to see if there is anything i could do to travel. They explained that the only option was to withdraw the application (no fees will be refunded), and any fresh applications must be done before BRP expires, otherwise i would be overstayer.
now, finally i can make plans to travel and see my mother's grave and see my family

thanks again to everyone

Hi

Congratulations, and all the best . Sorry to hear about your Mum. That is the worse situation to be in not having a passport.
