Today it has been a total of 6 months and one day. Not going to give up but dont think I will get anywhere if I call the call centre as the last time I spoke with someone they advised me to wait unitll the end of the month. I have contacted my local MP who has written to Home Office, I have written to the Home Office including my solicitor and I have yet to receive a response. I have also been calling the call centre on numerous occations.

Is this just a case of waiting? Anyone else in a similar situation? Can anything be done?

I see from previous posts that someone has been waiting since 20/02/2014....that is ridiculus! :!:

I think I am the one unlucky person who were still waiting since 21st February 2014 I have done everything but unfortunately nothing can helped that is why cantacting MP is just for hope and could be west of time. Anyway I am still hoping for good news.
Best wishes

Being from the EU I didn't have to apply for ILR (5yr EEA + spouse is British) but does it speed things up? I applied in early September and have noticed that quite a few members who applied around the same time have already received approval...

Hi Yannisb,

I was in the same boat as you. 5yr EEA + spouse is British. I applied early July 2014, got my approval letter early October. Roughly 3 months. I had applied via Camden council. Fingers crossed you should get it soon in the next couple of weeks.

I am also EEA citizen without ILR and applied in early August. Still "under consideration" according to the HO.

Hi

I applied in May14 and still waiting for reply. I was thinking to phone UKBA however feels like it won't any help. I guess i will have to just wait. There's nothing we can do. Can we?
