Thanks everyone for your help!

Are you EU or non-EU ?
This is a thread for EEA, so this was for EU/EEA route. I believe HO prioritises EEA applications over non-EEA, hence the shorter timeframe.
Zlash92, this thread is for both EEA and Non-EEA.

Hi Lyuda,
As I can see, you were applying as a non-EU citizen. I wonder of kind of card the PR will be printed on. Could you please kindly update us once received? Thank you.

Hi all!

Application posted - 06th Feb
Application received - 7th Feb
Payment taken - 10th Feb

.....Still waiting for the biometrics notification, or some sort of notification/confirmation. Dead silence. Average time for biometrics request seems to be less than two weeks. I am getting a bit concerned that we havent heard anything.
Any idea how I can follow up and find out?

Thank you

My wife and I are from Greece and moved to UK in Sept 2009 for postgraduate studies. We both had EIC's, but they expired on 31/12/2009 and didn't get a private insurance afterwards, as nobody told us we needed to do so.
I have been working from Sept 2010 until now for the same employer.
My wife continued with a 3-year PhD, funded by her uni, but without private medical insurance (again, we had no clue about it). She has been working from 1/1/2013 until now for the same institution.

We are now peer-pressured to apply for EEA PR's, so here are my questions:

1. The online application is asking for proof self-sufficiency and proof of studies for the duration of my studies. However, this is outside the qualifying period, which will obviously be the years of my employment. Do I still need to provide that?
2. I can add my wife to my online application, where no questions are asked about her studies/employment, just for proof we have been living together. Do you think it is safe to do that? Or
3. I should submit the application just for myself for now, while my wife can wait for another 10 months until she will have been employed for continuous 5 years, so she can apply separately?
4. In general, should we cover all the 8 years with supporting documents, or just focus on the qualifying period? By the way, there is no section in the application to define this qualifying period... How is it then defined?

Thanks in advance.
Any advice for me please?

Your 5 year qualifying period starts from the date you got married to EEA national, assuming you were living in the UK. Otherwise, from the time you entered the UK as a family member. This is all assuming the EEA national is exercising their treaty right during that time too.

For unmarried partners, it starts from the time the RC is issued.

So in your case February 2012 to February 2017, assuming your EEA national family is exercising their treaty right during your 5 year qualifying period.

Dear all,


I'm requesting for help regarding my application for EEA PR certificate and EEA PR cards my for non EEA family members, home office refused my application on the basis of claiming job seekers allowance for more than 91 days. I would like to ask for your help with my case as home office has issued a letter for my family members to make arrangements to leave the U.K. Within 14 days of that letter or to appeal against the decision. But as far I have read that an EEA national does not any restrictions on claiming job seekers allowance for more than 91 days in 5 years time. I'm looking for your earliest reply.

Hi Durani
Sorry to hear this I think the best thing to do is find good solicitors and a peal it you have 14 days I don't know when it stared but try to find good solicitor to get the best advice and has the home office refused the both application for the same reason ? And can you plz put your time line if u don't mind so that can help others thanks and best of luck.

Hi youknowhatimeanharry,


Thank your for reply. My time line is as follow -

Application sent: 04/08/2016
delivered: 05/08/2016
Payment taken: 09/08/2016
Biometric Letter received & submmited: 12/09/2016
CoA: 15/10/2016 confirming right of work
Received a call from the case worker on Sunday the 19/02/2017 regarding the email they sent me on the 12/02/2016 to request more documents or take another 5 years family permit, which I never received. I requested the lady if she could send me the email again so I could provide her more evidence but again I did not receive the email. I sent home office a letter by post on the 22/02/2017 to request the same email printed by post. On 27/02/2017 I received all my documents, passports and refusal decision letter.

I would like you to ask if there is any such kind of law which confirms that claiming job seekers allowance actively for more then 91 days in a 5 years time, does it restrict you to apply for an residence permit?

Thanks in advance.
Gook luck everyone.

Hello!
I am sharing my experience and the use of a great service provided by xxxxxx: name removed by moderator
Because all absences need to be included (even short holidays) in the application. It is worth to check what information the Home Office has on you.
I used the service of xxxxxx: name and weblink removed by moderator to support me in my application and they have been able to provide me with my list of absences from the UK over the last 5 years in the right format after liaising with the Home Office on my behalf. I did not have to worry about the residence requirement part of the application and it saved me some previous time.
I highly recommend their service. Do not hesitate to contact them if you struggle to reconcile your trips.

Hello,
We are a French family and applied for DCPR last year for husband (myself)+wife+son (10yr-old). I and my wife just received our DCPR however our son was refused DCPR ("Refusal to issue a PR card" letter) because I "have supplied no school letters or doctors letters to confirm that [he] has indeed been resident with [his] EEA national sponsor [i.e. myself=his parent] as claimed".
I'd be grateful if anyone could advise me re:
- Appeal or not: I assume it is best to make a new application for my son rather than appeal, as the missing evidence is a pretty irrefutable reason for the refusal (however I have just reread the "EEA(pr): guidance notes" pdf and I cannot find any explicit reference to a requirement to provide school or doctor letters for minor toddlers/children - anyway...). Please let me know if my thingking is correct (no use appealing).
- New application: can my son (re)apply on his own, exercising his own treaty rights ? But since he is a minor and obviously not working, I doubt this could work, as he cannot prove he can sustain his livelihood on his own, as he has no CSI, etc..
- Or new application: with myself as sponsor, but then I'd need to send back my ID card, my DCPR card etc... Oh well.
Many thanks for your help, and sorry if my question is a duplicate (I have searched the long thread but couldn't find any appropriate info).
