    How long does the home office check takes? On the 31st of October age advisor sent out email to carry out the home office check. My ILR was granted on 3/12/14 and they require 3 months proof which I couldn't give. So they are carrying out the check. How long would that take to come back?

    Hi Nasgsm,

    Home Office Checks are currently taking an estimated 12 working days.

    If this was requested on October 31, we would expect the Home Office to respond to us by November 16 and you should see an update online by November 17.

    Thanks Rona

    Hi Zainab96,

    Yes, you need to be ordinarily resident in the UK for 3 years prior to the first day of the first academic year of the course, in your case that is to January 1, 2018.

    Applications take approximately six to eight weeks to process,
    along with your original identity evidence, we will need you to send original Home Office evidence of your Indefinte Leave to Remain, ILR and when it was granted along with evidence of your previous status Limited Leave to Remain, LLR, in the UK and when it was granted / expired.

    Thanks Rona

    I dont have a child tax credit letter as i was not claming benefits. Will the child birth certificate be enough as evidence or will i need to provide other evidence to be assessed for parents learning allowance ?

    Hi Zainab96,

    The birth certificate is not enough information to apply for parents learning allowance, you will also need to provide either a child benefit letter or most recent tax credit award notice.

    Thanks

    So with me not being able to provide other evidence except child birth certificate, will this delay my application ?

    Hi Zainab96,

    Until we receive the correct evidence this will delay the processing of your Parents Learning Allowance.

    Thanks
