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.

Please somebody help me on the above questions.
In those circumstances yes you can travel and no it shouldn't delay your confirmation of PR APP
Thanks K7bs for your kind reply. Pls is the PR going to be a sticker or Card?

Update:

Application Sent: 04/10
Application Received: 05/10
Payment Taken: - 06/10
Bio metrics Letter Issued: 11/10
Bio metrics letter received: 20/10
Passport Requested: 11/10
Passport received: 20/10
Bio metrics given: 21/10
COA issued: 25/10
COA received: 27/10

03/04 - I had a call this morning from a caseworker, a very nice lady, she said as she couldn't see any documents of my EEA wife, so instead she will issue another 5 year residence card, to which I politely said that my wife has already acquired PR and her DCPR is with us. She looked into the system and said "Ok let me check and will call me back in 5 minutes". So as I was eagerly waiting, she rang back and apologised and said yes, I will issue you the PR today and you should get your card in the next 10 working days. I happily said thank you and put the phone down.

After about an hour, I had phone call from my MP's office saying that the PR card has been issued and I should get it very soon with the rest of my documents.

So I guess it all worked out fine for me. in total exactly 6 months as I sent in my application on the 3rd of Oct.

I'll update the forum as and when I receive something from the Home Office.

Good luck to all waiting....
GOD BLESS

Hi just wanna ask again, cause my husband's parents who are an EEA nationals would like to apply for a PR certificate. Is it okay if they will apply and fill up just one application? And do they need to fill up the section 2 (sponsor section) beacuse they are both EEA nationals already.

My husband is an EEA, but I am not. I applied for EEA PR on March 2nd and the fees were processed on March 5th, but till now I haven't received any letter of confirmation nor the Bio appointment. I submitted a cover letter with my application and supporting documents and I explained that I need my passport back since I have travel commitments and I also provided a special return envelop just for the passport to be sent earlier.
How do you request your passport back. I have to travel and I desperately need my passport.
Also if you have a pending case, can I exit and enter the UK in the meantime?
Thanks a lot!

Hi there,

Has anyone applied recently online? I have two questions.

First, I always thought that you could choose the date when the five period starts but I don't see anything about it in the application.

Second, I used to do PAYE work but now I'm self employed. I don't see an option that says 'used to work'
The only two options are
Worker - currently working
Previously working - retained status as a worker

Problem is none of those apply to me so I'm not sure what to tick. Well I obviously also ticked that I'm currently self employed.

Any advice appreciated! Thanks
