  • LAWYER RESPONSE I submitted my online application and payment and now I realised i was in SPAIN for 4 days on that date 5 years ago

    Hello all,

    I just realised that at the moment i paid and submitted the application I was in Spain 5 years ago for just 4 days

    I have paid everything already and I do not know if I can do something about it or if I am going to be disqualified authomatically

    Tim M (lawyer) I'm sorry I keep bothering you with this, would you recommend withdrawing the application as other members have done? If this is the best way forward, maybe I should put a note in the relevant resource that this is what they should do when the applicants do realise their mistake before biometrics, rather than relying on the caseworker asking them to re-submit on a different date.

      Yes that is the only approach to avoid the fee not being refunded in case the caseworker does not exercise some discretion

        Hi, I have been speaking twice with the immigration team from HO.

        They have told me about the quicker option of cancelling and sending a new AN application.

        I have canceled the application though this link as I had not submitted my uploaded documents

        Return of documents

        Nonetheless, I have not received any confirmation email.

        RIght now more than the money (which should come back within 8 weeks) what worries me is when I can apply again. According to two different workers from the immigration team I have been told that I would be able to do a new applocation right now however I do not know if this is wise as I have not received any cancellation confirmation

          Technically there's no minimum time limit, but you may want to wait at least till you get your confirmation of the withdrawal. What's the hurry? As long as you make sure you were here 5 years ago when you submit, try to allow a day or two either side just to be on the safe side.

              Thank you so much Site Admin and Mr M

              I will wait few days to submit the new application, however I have been confirmed by a 3rd member of the Home Office immigration team again that i would be OK to do so as both application would not overlap or make the decision taking slow down.

              Right now I just feel so embarrased...

              Thank you so much. My only hope is that at least, maybe, this will help others in the future

                Morning,

                I should think the new application would be considered as a fresh one, and there's no reason for the timing to be affected, since the previous application was withdrawn before it was "valid", since an application without biometrics isn't a valid application, they won't be looking at that one.

                Many people are not aware of this requirement which, in my view, is a bit silly, however, it is an essential part of the British Nationality Act 1981, and there is talk about amending the Act, not so much over issues like this, but as a result of the Windrush scandal.
