Default Application ILR Question- Case Number

Hello,

There is one question that is confusing me on the ILR Set M application- under Immigration Details, "Do you have any Home Office reference numbers"?

Does this refer to any application made for extension to remain (not ILR) such as my extension of 2.5 years on first grant of stay (made out of UK) or is it specific to other ILR applications which would have been made?

Many thanks, apologies if I am overthinking it!

Usually you'd only have a reference number if you submitted an appeal. Most people won't have one, it's safe to leave blank

Thanks Clever Octopus! That is what I thought too, but I rang the Home Office and was told it is the number that would be found on my further leave to remain notification letter. I still think it is safe to leave blank as the question reads " if you don't know, please leave blank".
I am quite anxious about submitting, will be a relief when it is in!

Ah, I just checked my FLR(M) letter and it does have a reference number (NN-N-NNNNNNN). I suppose you can enter that, but in 6+ years I have never seen anyone have any issues for failing to provide this

I didn't enter mine from FLR because I thought that wasn't the thing to do (have seen conflicting things on various immigration forums but seemed like more on the side of not putting it) I didn't put a reference number and was granted ILR fine. I definitely understand the anxiety though, so much at stake I couldn't help worry the tiniest little things might screw it all up!

Exactly! I have reread the application about a million times, particularly as I am going standard rather than priority, have increased anxiety about the processing times.
This forum has been instrumental in the last 5 years plus, thank you for all your help and advice! I will make sure to post my time frame once I hit payment!

When are you looking to submit?

BTW, I remember seeing this question also, and as we have not received any ref, I will leave blank. Also had a quick look on flr grant letter. And there is no reference. Thats been left empty.

I thought it was referring to my previous FLR(M) case IDs so I added those. But now that I'm thinking about it seems more relevant that they are asking for any prev applications numbers for ILR. Not sure why they wouldn't just word the question that way but oh well. Can't see it doing any harm if you add them or don't add them really.

I did call the home office and they confirmed it is any other applications, so in my case my further leave to remain granted in 2017. I don't think it much matters though.
My visa expires August 2020 but I am submitting now- I have given up on priority being an option!

Thanks again for all the help.
