Really, really the forum has helping me a lot. Both for my application and changing the address after application. Thanks to you all.

Please please please, DO NOT trust the online form for change of address (after application), and please pay for ROYAL MAIL Redirect (as it is recommended on the forum). Even I filled the online form more than 1 months ago, the letter was posted to my old address and I only got because I used the royal mail redirect.


Best wishes,

Eligibility criteria: section 1(3) - Child born in the UK to EU parents in 2008, Parents granted EU Settled status in 2019.

Also worth noting that my friend also did MN1 application for his son with almost identical circumstances, but he enrolled his biometrics in early June and he received his confirmation/certificate a day before me. Overall from biometrics enrolment to receiving certificate I think it took him just 3 or 4 weeks.
