I apologise for the delay in responding to the Hon. Member’s correspondence. A reply was sent 18 December 2020.


The Hon. Member wrote on 22 September 2020 on behalf of his constituent Mrs Mercia Rose Kildaire, regarding a missing Biometric Residence Permit.

Mrs Kildaire made an application on 24 March 2020 and leave to enter the UK as a Tier 2 Migrant was granted on 29 July 2020. Unfortunately, when the application was made the Biometric data was not captured successfully and as a result the Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) was not produced. The BRP Error Team were notified there was an issue with production on 24 September 2020. As a result, on 6 October 2020 the necessary application was raised and on 13 October a Biometric Enrolment letter was issued. On 20 October the request for production of a BRP was submitted. Mrs Kildaire’s BRP was issued on 23 October 2020 and sent to the dispatch address we held on file.

On 12 November a reply was dispatched in response to the Hon Member’s correspondence, unfortunately the response was sent to an incorrect email address. The response has now been sent to the correct email address on 18 December.
