Dear Home Office,

Application For No Time Limit (NTL) And A Biometric Immigration Document By Someone Who Already Has Indefinite Leave To Enter Or Remain In The UK in 2017 . This is to transfer the Indefinite Leave Document from old passport to Biometric Card.

What is the typical response time from receipt of application to issue of approval and receipt of Biometric Card for a straightforward (meeting all the requirements and is a valid application) case.

Is there a backlog in your office for processing NTL Applications?

Yours faithfully,
Sheha Dunn
