Normally they will work until it's finished, if there's too many tickets they stop giving them out...

From what i would guess, the tickets won't be valid anymore tomorrow and the sheme starts again.

 

The only option you have is to use an agent or prepare for a very long wait time imo

Ice always use an agent. They have 'ways' of getting in front I never wait more than 30 mins usually. Good luck.

Yes, everyone at CW has the same issue.

 

As another poster said, just wait, they work until everyone has been taken care of, as the day drags on they start working quicker, they want to go home also!  You cannot use the same queue ticket any other day.

 

Some will tell you, after the fact, that you should have used an agent, and that is correct if you don't mind paying, but they probably won't give you specific details.  Don't worry about it, you'll be done by the end of today.

You have a ticket. You will be sorted. Most likely late in day given what you describe.

Ask at your school they will probably have one in the office or if not be affiliated with one and give you a contact number.

Slight light at the end of the tunnel, Immigration Police have just had a recruitment drive for  1000 new posts, over 30,000 applied.

 

Unfortunately only 940 or so passed the written exams, and they are waiting for results of interviews/medical examinations in August.

 

Then they will start to be appointed and trained, training may be abbreviated to get them in post quickly.

Unfortunately i do not see it as good news at all.

It just indicates that we will not see any easing as some hoped But just more vigorous enforcement and stricture in the already overly complex immigration rules..

Yes, that’s certainly one view. The other view could be that they are trying to reduce queues everywhere with more staff, and maybe the new blood can come up with better ways of ensuring good guys in, bad guys out.

The recruitment drive is largely due to the TM30 enforcement issue, and a clear message that they're playing hardball on it.

Do you have proof to that statement. I doubt that is the reason.

They are increasing staff to insure they have enough people at all offices, airports and border crossings.
