Good morning everyone,
I got my ATAS clearance last month but I had to renew my passport. Do I need to get another clearance for the new passport? I tried to contact the ATAS team but up till now they haven't responded to my inquiry. Can anyone give me some advice on this?
guys, i applied for my atas on the 21st of august. yes i know, its late. but unfortunately i registered with the wrong JACS code, and i finished and submitted the application nevertheless. on the website they asked me to re-register with the correct jacs code with the same email. but i wasnt sure whether i would have to redo the whole application. so i left it. today i realised if they were to ask me to redo the application later, it would be really late and i would not make it into the uni. so i decide to complete the application again and submitted it. any idea guys by when i can receive the ATAS clearance?
So are you guys postgraduate students or undergraduate students and where are you guys from ??
I just have submitted the ATAS application and issued the starting date of study in 1 of Nov -2012.
Now, I wish to start my study in 1 of Dec. Is this change effect on the visa application? Is there a relation between the starting date of study issued in ATAS and the starting date of study issued in Visa?
Thanks you in Advance.
Yes. Its very important that your ATAS details match with your visa details. The start date of your course is mentioned on your offer letter. That is he date you need to enter. If you want to start in December get that date first mentioned on your revised offer letter and then reapply for ATAS. I had a similar issue where my address on the passport which I entered in the ATAS application didn't match with the address mentioned in my offer letter. I was then asked to update my offer letter with the correct address and then reapply. However before doing this. I suggest you just call and confirm with your university first. Hope this helps. And all the best.
I wish I had your life for one second where my biggest problem is that I have extra time to get the ATAS.
1. I received the confirmation on 18th Aug, so I suppose that is my application date
2. Still haven't heard from them yet
3. It is now exactly 20 days since my application, and i probably can receive the result within the next week (if I'm lucky)
4. Things are not looking good...course starts on 24th Sep.

Application submitted: 06-08-2012
Email asking full names of Referees: 07-08-2012
Conformation email after amendments: 20-08-2012
ATAS certificate: till now not received
More than 25 working days and no reply for e-mails to ATAS team. Slightly concerned about what to do.
Hey is yours a post grad or undergrad programme??... they might have different processing times for each
All this thread did is to depress me. None of you had their clearance in 20 days as announced in the website... which means the only chance I have to do something I like and to u turn my life is gone for a damn paper !! I just want to make a little plane and go to Oshkosh :-(
