Booking an appointment to apply for Settlement
6 Aug 2012 — jessicas
After passing the Life in the UK Test I had to go online to book an appointment at the Public Enquiry Office in Croydon (my closest centre) for an in person application for my Settlement (Indefinite Leave to Remain). It was more expensive (£1,350 compared to £972) but I had plane tickets to go home for Christmas and I was told the postal application could take weeks. As I was leaving on December 16th I didn’t have that time!
You can apply:
To book an appointment online for the premium one day service, I had to set up an online UKBA online account.

I could have also called to book an appointment, but booking online allowed me to see what appointments were available at different PEO’s. I have called up before and sometimes you are on hold for a while.
I booked an appointment for my Settlement application on 26 November 2011 at the Croydon PEO (my closest centre).
