Just wanted to say that this forum has been invaluable in my application. Thank you to everyone who takes the time to respond and answer questions.
I am new to the site but have read the previous posts over the last few months.
My timeline is as follows: EEA National
Documents sent: 21 April 2016
Documents received: 22 April 2016
Payment taken: 26 April 2016
Confirmation email received: 23 May 2016
Passport Return Request: 27 May 2016
Still waiting for my passport.... 31 days later.. NOT 10 days...
66 days since the application was received.
Seems like i still have a little bit longer to wait as the times have been delayed quite a bit..
I have read something really concerning that i hope someone can help with. I have read that if you take time off when pregnant / maternity leave, you lose your 'treaty rights' as the time off is not classified as worker status. Has anyone had this before?
Thanks in advance.
Hey NMH, have filled a second passport request? If your first request goes over the working days limit, you need to fill the second request when the time has passed, otherwise it's very likely your request will be ignored.
Thank you yvonnew, I thought as much
I filled in the 'where are my documents' form today so hopefully will get something soon.
I have a similar situation as yours and also nearly same timeline.
I have requested back our ID's & Passports on 22/05/16 and nothing came for 3 weeks, then filled the "where are my documents" on 11/06/16 and waited 2 weeks and nothing, not a sign. called HO couple of times in between , totally unuseful, all they kept saying was to wait extra 10 working days.
Today 27/06/16 ( 5 weeks later) I have requested back one more time using the form online as before. It is very frustrating, actually I am fuming, but I really hope this time will have them back within 2 weeks time.
I've been refused 4 job interviews at this point because couldn't present my Passport in original, copies not accepted.We had panned holidays but Luckily I didn't booked any tickets at this point. I don't understand why they don't answer or take in consideration these requests, probably they ask to fill the "where are my documents" form just to delay and to monitor requests.
Hope for all of us that this procedure will become smoother in the future, because is a torture not being able to access your ID OR PASSPORT when needed most and especially no communication at all from them.
