Welcome to immigrationboards.com!
No, because having ILR / Settled under the EU Scheme or a DCPR means you are free from immigration control.
Just an update. Submitted my application on March 5th 2020 (i.e. before new guidelines) and had biometrics appointment on June 1st, first available date after postponement of original April appointment. Happy to say that on June 5th I received an email confirming I had my application approved.zcranso wrote: ↑Mon May 18, 2020 9:09 pmI made a small experiment to check whether there has been any change. I submitted my own application in March so I can notice any differences. I inserted some random details which are still valid until I got to the document checklist part of the application. There I was told that I would need to provide:
* 'Evidence that you have been in the UK lawfully for your 3 or 5 year qualifying residence period. This should be evidence that you were here as a worker, student, self-employed, self-sufficient, retired or incapacitated person.'
* 'If you spent some of that time in the UK as a student or as a self-sufficient person, and had comprehensive sickness insurance (CSI), a copy of your sickness insurance policy'
I can confirm that none of these requirements appeared in my actual application in March. It would therefore appear that this is a new requirement as reflected in the guidance posted by uklondonn.
For what it's worth I don't think that this makes citizenship using EU Settlement impossible. The guidance seems to say that CSI would strengthen the application but is not essential and caseworkers should exercise discretion.
I also want to believe that this does not affect applications already submitted. The fact that we never agreed in our applications that we could provide these documents should hopefully prevent them from asking for them.
I hope this helps everyone.
I am worried. in the application form it's still asking for applicant employment not EU sponsor. is it seperate document you upload ? i don't have anything from my ex so i don't know what to doCost Manager wrote: ↑Fri May 22, 2020 8:13 amI remember last year we received our settles status at the same time with similar conditions. Are you applying BC in June? Do you think CSI requirement for non Eu members will apply? We are not tied to our partners as sponsor? I would think they will look our immigration history rather than sponsor?askmeplz82 wrote: ↑Thu May 21, 2020 11:48 pmThey can . I choose 2010 - 2015 and i got settled status
Applicants who have settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme are not covered by the transitional arrangements as their settlement status is based on the 5y qualifying period immediately prior to the EU Settlement Scheme application date. Unlike EEA/PR applications, EU Settlement Scheme applicants cannot choose their qualifying period.
The naturalisation application is personal to you so you will have to provide details relating to yourself only.
To my understanding, the CSI is only required for the Settled Status route. You're fine.
Yes, they did.
It should also be possible to rely on residence since being granted pre-settled or settled status without supporting evidence. The policy says that “once granted pre-settled status, [citizenship applicants] will not need to demonstrate that they were exercising a treaty right”. Compliance with the EEA Regulations is relevant to “residence prior to the grant of pre-settled status, or settled status”.

It seem CSI doesn't apply to you as you were not studying or not being self-sufficient.cdyz5 wrote: ↑Tue Jun 16, 2020 6:18 pmHi All I am applying for citizenship. I am holder of settled status Non-EU family member but i am confused to tick this option in application.
