Dear Home Office,

Please i want to know how long it takes to receive an acknowledgement letter from Home office after Applying for ILR on hm forces category. So basically i sent off my application on 24th nov 2017. Home Office received it on 27th Nov. Money Debited from my acc the next working day which is 28th Nov. So since then i have not heard a response from them. My visa is due to expire 17th dec 2017. My employer needs some kind of acknowledgement letter or email from home office so i can keep on working. If you can please give an estimate on how long it takes to receive an acknowledgement letter or email from home office?

Yours faithfully,

Mariama Jallow
