I went to Galsgow UK Border Agency office on 28th of August for my ILR application in person.

 

They refused to take on my application saying that they don't deal with 'self employed' cases thereby meaning that they don't deal with the application wherein the applicant is self employed.

 

Neither the form, nor their website talks about Glasgow office not dealing with self employed case.

 

UK Border Agency has seriuosly let me down.

 

Did anybody had similar experience? I would be interested to know what they have done or what is the right course I should follow on my in-person application fiasco (courtsey UK Border Agency).

Welcome to the site.

The reason for this is because some PEOs do not have staff or resources to do the verification checks that are needed for self employment docs.

It is actually mentioned here;

(In the UK Sheffield is a very popular choice for this) although Carlisle is closer for you.(Not sure if they offer PEO facility though)

Please note, PEO Glasgow can not currently take any applications which rely in full or in part on self employed earnings.

Hi,

 

I don't think it is clearly mentioned anywhere in their website that so and so PEO don't deal with application of self employed. It should have been mentioned in the application as well. But no, there was no information in the form also.

 

This resulted my going to Glasgow, returned back empty handed wasting my time and energy. Besides I missed to time to book another ILR application in Person dates. Result is that I had to send it by post. I send it by post in September 10th 2012 and still awaiting outcome of my application.

 

It goes beyond commonsense who UK Border Security Departments and their organisation works. Funny enough to suggest that in person application takes 1 day while application by post takes more than 6 months(currently).

 

Deeply disappointed by UKBS on all count. Equally disappointed on seeing your reply too.

 

Regards

This note of theirs have been put on now since many complained at Glasgow office(including me).

 

When I applied, the note was not there in their website. Even when I asked the Glasgow UKBA personnel to show me in the form or the website about any notification of such kind, they agreed that it is not there and they have asked their superiors to put on the website.

 

May I add here, can you ask the Glasgow UKBA office on how many of the candidates (self employed) returned back with their application till the cut-off dat of 22 August 2012? They should be able to provide the list of candidates like me who returned back.

 

But because of all this, I could not book another date for in-person ILR. Result is that I applied by post on 10th September 2012. And I am still waiting (after 5 month and 20+days) for the outcome. Funny and pathetic as it is, I fail to understand any logic behind in-person application being given outcome within 1 day while the application by post taking more than 5 months+ to give outcome. Unless until UKBA has decided to harass the applicant (by post) despite charging them almost same money(just £500 less) than those who applied in person!

 

Matter of fact is, UKBA is autocratic and secretive in functioning. More so when no men or organistion, no matter how credible they are, want to take them head on.

 

As far we are concern, we have no choice but to bow down to what is happening and pray God to have mercy on us.

There may be many faults with the immigration policies and procedures in this country, however you have to play by their rules.

Any opinion I give is from personal experience .
