Dear Home Office,

1. What is the average and maximum time required in receiving a BRP at the post office after a visa application was made outside UK?

3. What is the average and maximum time required for replies from the home office for reporting BRP collection problem via the report now link present here -

4. How many BRPs have been sent back from the post office because of delays in the collection during the pandemic? How long did it take to get the BRP back to the post office after it was sent back during the pandemic?

Yours faithfully,

Sandip Varkey George
