On the 11th of December 3 emails received from Sheffield stating that:

* no tb test
* no return envelop.
P.s Jamaica is not in the listed country for tb or English Language proof so none was sent with supporting documents. A letter was sent by my wife of Dec 12 stating that Jamaica was no in list of required country for Those test so none was done.
No further communication from them.
60 working days timeline was given the day I did bio.
