Re: Comprehensive Health Insurance student working part time

Post by Nina Radivo » Wed Mar 08, 2017 11:24 am

Hi everyone!

I'm a Bulgarian national, and have lived in the uk since 2008. I've only just stumbled upon the CHI (Comprehensive Health Insurance) condition in the PR application form, and am slightly confused about it: my years as a student don't count towards my 5 year period unless I can prove I had CHI, but I was also working part time during most of my time as a student, so does that mean I can count those months towards my 5 year period? Basically what if a person is both a student and part-time employed? What does that mean for the CHI requirement?

Thanks for taking the time to read this!

Below my timeline for PR Application as EEA National, who has been living here since 2007 as Self-Sufficient and Employed:

Application transmitted online: 30/01/2017
Appointment for European Passport Return Service: 31/01/2017
PR received: 09/03/2017, dated 27/02/2017

I am positively surprised with the quick turnaround. All the docs I had provided were returned together with the Residence Card Document and a letter stating the Date I acquired Permanent residency.

Hi all

Please see me timeline below. I know it's been just a week since I submitted the Biometrics but I haven't received the COA. Should I enquire about this? And if so, which email address should I use, or should I call?

I know that some of you may have waited longer for the COA, but did you follow up on it when you didn't get one after submitting biometrics?

I'm concerned because I was wondering when the 6-month wait starts ... the date on the COA or the date the application was sent?

Thanks

Dear noajthan

I have applied for DCPR few weeks ago based on the descendant aged under 21. I have selected this category as I was a student and living with my family in UK since 2011. When I have selected this category I didn't notice there has a box on the below where says ' Note: if you are, or have been, an extended family member of the relevant EEA national, you must have held valid residence documentation (registration certificate, residence card or EEA family permit) throughout the relevant qualifying period.' but I never applied for registration certificate. For supporting documents I have enclosed my passport, father's passport (sponsor), my birth of certificate (international format), 4 years college letters, a cover letter as I couldn't arrange a letter from my school as school does not exist anymore, father's (sponsor) 5 years bank statements(shows child benefit, child tax credit and wages etc), 2 p60, 5 years payslips, 5 years tenancy agreement,some housing benefit letters, some council tax letters, 5 years all school and college ID cards and recent ehic card.

* Do you think my application will be refuse as I never applied for Registration Certificate or hold one?
* Those supporting documents I have sent are they well adequate?
* If the application gets refused do I have to apply for registration certificate first then apply for DCPR?

Thank you

You are not an extended family member but rather a direct descendant i.e. Child of an EEA national (your father/sponsor) and therefore that statement does not apply to you.
Secondly, it seems as though you are an EEA national yourself and a registration certificate is not a requirement for DCPR.

Hello,

I received DCPRs for me and my wife today. Here's the timeline:

Application received by UKVI: 28/11/2016
Confirmation e-mail: 09/12/2016
Call from caseworker (see below): 06/03/2017
DCPR dated: 14/03/2017
DCPR received: 17/03/2017

I wouldn't say this was a straightforward case. I naturalised as a EU citizen midway through the qualifying period, and me and my wife switched roles as qualified person and family member. Plus my wife is self-employed. On 06/03 I received a call from the case worker, notifying me that my wife would be granted a DCPR, but that I would only be issued a residence certificate. Fortunately I was able to argue my case over the phone and the next day they agreed to issue a DCPR for me as well.

This was my third submission attempt, after the first two were rejected due to credit card payment problems. On both of these I received a confirmation e-mail about 2 weeks after submission, and the whole application was returned about a month after submission. I used a postal order on the third attempt.

Thanks to everyone for the help!

Applied: 3rd Oct 2016 - NON EEA PR

I approached my MP for an update, this the reply I got....

I have spoken to the Home Office. They tell me that your application is still under consideration and that the service standards timescales’ ends on 4th April. The Home Office has said they will contact the casework team to see if they can provide me with any further update.

GOD BLESS

Hello,
I am in the middle of completing all documents for EEA (PR). I have some questions. I would be greateful if you could answer them based on your own experience or knowledge.

I am Polish and I have first arrived in UK in 2007 for work. In 2008 went back to Poland to finished my studies. I have informed HMRC before leaving that I I had no intention to come back however in 2010 I came back for work and stayed permanently since then.

***Question-5.1 Date you first entered the UK- Should my answer be 2007 or 2010?

***WRS card or certificate- In 2010 I have applied for WRS. I was then working through the agency. The card was issued in Febuary 2011. In March 2011 I have received the permanet contract at work still working in the same place but of course my employer was no longer the Agency but the Company. I did not know that I have to inform the HO about this change. Is that something that could stop me from receiving the Permanet Residence and seen as I have broken the immigration rules? The WRS was no longer needed after 30 April 2011.

***Supporting documents- I do have different documents starting from 2010 mainly proving that I have been working all this time. I do have the letters from HMRC, some payslips, letters from some emloyers.
I have also requested the letters from GPs showing my attendaces and addresses. The only problem that I have is that I do not have any bills from the period of first 3-4 years. The only document I can provide is Bank statement showing all my addresses from last 6 years.
Was any of you in the same situation applying without the bills or with limited docs? HO accordigly to the application guide requires 2 docs from different sources from each year spread evenly.
Would a Cover Letter (I would have explained that I was renting the room and that is why I do not have bills and when I moved with my parter all bills were on his name, also in 2 places the gas/ electric was on the top up or water included in the rent- all bills on the landrold name) along with the documents that I have (Bank statement and letters from GPs) would be enough to prove the part that I was leaving in UK?

***Qualified person- from 2010 till 2017 in total I have not worked for 2 months but never claimed any benefits. I left one work place to look for something else which I can prove by showing emails from agencies when I atteneded the interviews etc. Would that be a problem for HO that I have not worked for this period of time?

Your answers, any suggestions, tips or own experience would be very much appreciated.
Thank you in advance. Paulina

I read on your posts the "confirmation" email received from HO. Do you mean the email from HO saying that they have received your application?

Do you normally get anything from HO between this email and the Biometrics later?

Thanks
