Received PR today!!!

Post by msi786 » Fri Nov 12, 2010 1:46 pm

I am so happy to receive PR today :D Could not believe it as I was expecting it in December. Thank you to HO for processing it so quickly and to this forum for all the invaluable information.

I have sent an EEA4 application in June, so the whole process took around 5 months. Just a bit of advice - always better send more documents rather than less. Initially I sent my application in April, however it was returned to me month later as I only enclosed the documents proving that my wife exercised treaty rights in the UK, however proof of residence of non-EU applicant needs to be enclosed as well.

Good luck to all of you who are still waiting for the PR!

I'm still waiting for my PR. Applied beginning of July 2010, called today, was told: 'Assigned to a Case worker, awaiting consideration'. Will give them a call by the end of November.

Hi Everyone,

Just to let you all know, that i had my Permanent Residence Recieved today! I am very pleased with the progress so here's the timeframe of my application:

April 25th applied for PR
July the 1st 2010- Documents sent back to me due to the lack of Comprehensive Sickness Insurance. Had to purchase new policy.
July the 6th - fully packaged docs re-sent
COA received 05/08/2010.
26/11/2010 - PR received.

So, in total it makes 20 weeks and 3 days. (just above 4 months).

I would like to thank everyone for sharing their experience on this matter and good luck to those who are still awaiting for their documents.

Wishing you a very magical Christmas, and a Happy New Year!

one love
