Nah mate unfortunately that’s another week gone by with no ID check. I’ve got nothing to worry about in terms of it being rejected so I have no idea what’s taking so long. Wouldn’t be surprised if I hit the 12 week mark without one, kinda sucks.

Same boat here. 8 weeks now and no email. I applied 10 days before you Sawyer, so no doubt you’ll get your ID check before me!

Oh wow, yeah it’s pretty annoying. It doesn’t even seem to be processed in the order they’re received so you never know. Have you given them a ring to see if you can get any info out of them?

I haven’t bothered. From the sounds of things on here it’s not really worth it until 12 weeks, it’s not as if they are going to fast track it for me!

12 weeks today since I put in my Cat H application. Have had an AB for 10 years.
Submitted 19th Nov 2019.
Nothing heard yet.

Update: I rang them straight after posting here. I talked to a nice bloke who told me it had been accessed and only a couple of more checks to go. He couldn't tell me a time frame.

Approval email arrived on the following Friday.
PTA approval email arrived on the Monday.

Crossed fingers the card will be in the mail this week.

9.5 weeks for me.
Zerk, your post instils no hope in me whatsoever.
Am curious to hear what happens after you call them.
Best of luck.

Time to jump on the phone and give them a nudge. I was in the same boat and waited till week 12. Called and the guy says something along the lines of "oh that's weird... your documents haven't been associated..." He 'fixes' something up in the system and got the ball rolling again.

I know nothing I say will make the wait any better mate... but hang in there and ride it out :D As soon as you hit 12 weeks give them a polite call and mention you've not seen anything from them yet.... it will take a few weeks after that until your plastic arrives in the mail for sure.

This is depressing reading, I submitted my Cat H application just over a month ago so was hoping to hear something back soon but now it seems that it could be another couple of months of nothing before I have to chase them.

I'ts a pity that the only efficient part of WLB is the one that takes your money.

Hahah you got that right. I just wish they could give us some sort of indication as to what’s happening so I don’t have to chase them on the 12th week just for them to say something like “oh yeah sorry about that”

Right. That seems to be the only difference I can see in the wait times.
I’m at 10 weeks for cat h and haven’t had my id check yet.

Are you a Cat A/B holder already?

I heard at my pistol club today that the initial 28 day wait period isn't (or shouldn't be) applied to new Cat H applications if you already hold A/B.
I think it means A/B holders can get processed in 8/9 weeks rather than 12/13
