Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Home Office should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Home Office,

When a BRP is reported as not received after 10 working days via your online form, what process is followed to determine the reasons for the delay?

If an issue cannot be resolved immediately, what response is given to the customer, and after how long is the issue reviewed?

What are the most common causes recorded for the delays in the issue of the BRPs?

Yours faithfully,
