It was helpful to know that there are many others out there who are playing the waiting game and discussing their timelines.

This is our timeline as below:
EEA husband /Non EEA wife (resident card expired Sept 2016) apply for PR in the same application

Documents sent: 19/09/16
Document received: 20/09/16
payment taken: 21/09/16
Confirmation email received 04/10/16
Biometric letter received: 08/10/16 (dated 03/10/16) - name misspelled, sent an email regarding the error
New biometric letter received: 18/10/16 (dated 17/10/16)
Biometric enrolment: 19/10/16
COA received 21/10/16 dated 20/10/16
Passports requested 22/10/16 (both EEA and non-EEA passports including the passport with the expired residency card):
Passports received: approx. 10-14 days later (can't remember the exact date) via Royal Mail Special Delivery (which I included at the time of application)
EEA PR and all other documents submitted received: 22/03/2017 via Royal Mail Special Delivery (which I included at the time of application)
Non-EEA PR received: 27/03/2017 (was delivered to my home on 23/03/2017 but I wasn't around) by DX, card dated 18 March 2017

Despite the COA letter stating to waiting for the PR documents to be returned before travelling and all the advice I read on the forum about not travelling.. we went to Germany for Christmas and brought along documentation to show that my EEA husband is exercising his treaty rights in the UK (e.g. marriage certificates, payslips, work contracts etc.) if we got asked at the border in Heathrow. At the check-in counter, the airline company in Berlin asked if we lived in the UK and asked to look at my (non-EEA wife) passport/residency card. However, I think he did not realise that it was expired. (My non-EEA passport allows me to travel into the UK as a tourist without a visa anyway). At Heathrow, the UK border agent looked at my passport and expired residency card and waved us through (to our surprise!!) without any questions.

Hence we travelled again 4 more times (Jan-March, by air via Gatwick, Stansted and Heathrow). On our 4th trip back to London, the UK border agent noticed (at Gatwick) that my resident card has expired and asked us some questions e.g. are you married, how long have you been in the UK etc. and we said that we have made an EEA PR application in September 2016. He then sounded nicer and then said that we should be expecting it back soon. He asked me to fill in a landing card (usually not required when I travel with my resident card) and made some notes on it. He then stamped my passport with a 'Admitted under the EEA Regulations 2006' stamp, which is valid for 6 months.

I hope some of you might find my experience with travelling helpful!

Hello all,

Hope somebody could give me some advice.

I'm an EEA citizen and living and working in the UK. Since July 2011.
I've filled out the online application for the PR card last night.
Paid the fee and packed everything to an envelope, will be off to the post office shortly to post it.

But I've just got an email from HO which says that they have received my application. Do you think they mean the online one ? Because they clearly don't have my attached papers and passport.

Is this a normal procedure ?

Thanks all :)

hey guys

my wife applied for PR, she is EU citizen, got back within 30 days i think this is was way too quick. if you

exclude the delivery and postage dates then it might be 20 days or sumat, she had clear record of working

with only three employers in 5 years. Also if you call/post letter to HMRC they will give your record of N.I

contribution for 5 years. that will help you with your history.

Hi Guys,

Am about to send my application out for PR. I retained my right (ROR) 2015 after divorce. The ROR will expire by 2020 but I want to apply for PR without waiting till 2020. Now if I apply and receive my COA after doing biometrics, can I request my passport back since I still have residence document in it till 2020. Again can I travel outside UK if I get the passport back while the PR process is going on? Will requesting of passport delay the processing time? Is HO going to give me PR in card form or sticker.

Thanks for helping me out.

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.
Hi durani did u appeal again or did u go to court thanks ????

Yes, you can. As long as you provide a valid passport on the date of application.

[If Applicable]

In the event of passport expriing on or before the date of application, you must apply to renew your passport.
You can also send EEA application to your Embassy or High Commission for a letter stating why passport cannot be submitted with EEA application due to a pending passport renewal application. Submit this letter together with a copy of your passport and EEA application to the HO to get the six months rolling. When you recieve your new passport you should submit it to the HO.

Okay, thank you. I actually renew my current passport but the processing is 2-3months. But i need to send my PR application this week. They said my passport is still valid. Just wondering if i can request to the Home Office once i submitted my PR application to send back my current passport so i could get my renewed passport then send my new passport back to the home office?

Are you an EEA national? If yes you can fill an online application and use the European passport return service. That way you get to keep all orginal documents once checked. If not I suggest you submit your application as normal and if necessary request your passport for renewal once checked by HO. Confirmation of PR will be issued on BRP, therefore passport will not be needed once returned.

We received our documents today after almost 6months. This is our timeline:

Documents sent: 30/09/16
Document received: 03/10/16
payment taken: Postal order
Biometric letter received: 17/10/16
Biometric enrolment: 04/11/16
EEA PR and all other documents submitted received: 01/04/2017 via Royal Mail Special Delivery (which I included at the time of application)
Non-EEA PR received: Still awaiting

The only problem that I now have is that the "acquired permanent residency date" is not the date that the entered in the U.K for the first time 11/09/11. They put the date that my husband (non-eeu) got his 5years recidency after we got here(05/12/11) . Has this happened to any if you? What can I do?

I hope you can help.

Regards,

Quiqui

In those circumstances yes you can travel and no it shouldn't delay your confirmation of PR APP
