Just called UBKA re EEA4 as I am now 5 months and 2 weeks from application. Still not been assigned to a case worker or case work team. Asked
1) How long are current processing times before a case gets to a case work team or caseworker - they can't provide that information as they only provide the "target" time to processing which is 6 months
2) When it gets to the case worker or case work team, how long does it take to typically process a straightforward case - they dont have those numbers either
Then asked, is there any way to escalate a case - guess what the response was... they cant provide any information...
Not sure why I bothered to call really...
Any thoughts on how to escalate/prioritise your case, maybe from someone who has successfully done so?
you still can contact your local MP to push your application.
if your application long six months that mean the UKBA has breached the law.
when you complain use the UKBA Guidance see below
European Casework Instructions
CHAPTER 5 - RESIDENCE CARD APPLICATIONS
5.8 Six-month rule
Community law requires us to decide applications for a Residence Card within 6 months from the date of receipt of the application. Every effort should be made to do so, particularly where an applicant draws our attention to an alleged breach of this requirement. Failure to comply with this requirement could leave the Home Office open to a claim for damages.
