Hey guys i have a couple of questions

1) When you're applying in country do you get the BRP and no visas in your passport and vice versa when you're applying out of country?

2) I had my interview a month ago with ukba i was suppose to get my BRP in the mail ages ago but nothing has turned up. I didn't even get a letter from the courier to arrange another date etc. I contacted UKBA twice but they sending back a generic email stating that it will be investigated and to wait another 3-7days. What should i do?

Basically yes. With recent changes in BRP rules, almost everyone who extends their leave will now get BRP instead of endorsement in their passport. This is largely security-led operation, as BRP is much more difficult to forge than a standard sticker visa or stamp.

I don't know what to suggest. You presumably sent an email to the address provided on UKBA site? Did you provide all the information they asked for?

I did. I got a response from them this morning saying that they had to rebook a delivery as the first attempt failed. I have no idea what that means.

The guidelines state that if they deliver the BRP and noone is at home, the courier will leave a note saying to call the relevant authorities to rebook a date. I didn't even get a courier letter or anything like that.

I keep getting the same generic email from the BRP unit. I think I will contact the local councillor to see if they can do anything about it.

From my experience with couriers, many don't bother to leave a card when they can't deliver (or in some cases don't bother to attempt to deliver, like when running late). So presumably the package was returned to UKBA and they are now attempting to redeliver. So I'd wait another week before doing anything.
