I have submitted my application on 20th Feb 2009 which is stated on COA,sent additional docs in Dec 2009 and they had got them in Jan 2010 by special delivery(another joke of postoffice)...then I have been waiting sine so far and there is not any updated.I have just called them as well in liverpool a few days ago,who was over the phone said my case is still under consideration and wouldn't give any further information...
really really really tired and desperate...cant do a thing without my passport...

anyone has the same sh**?
If you provided the requested documents nearly 6 months ago, I would advise you to contact your local MP and SOLVIT asap. The UKBA is legally obliged to issue your Residence Card within 6 months of receiving the application. Also, like armstrong said, your local MP may be desperate for votes, and would be eager to chase it up for you.

I would imagine that they are very very close to issuing it, because they seem to be getting around to Dec 2009 applications recently.
Thanks doesnotcompute.Right now im about to email my local MP.But if it is like you said,my requested docs has been sent since Jan 10,its not 6 months yet and if the HO teams are really getting around to Dec 09 applications,should I just wait to any minute from now?Seems you are involved with a lot of information:)
I think home office now dealing with january 2010 application . as some of member who applied (05-11)january got the rc in this month and this for starightforward case. hopefully it tkes more time if there is overstay or something like that.

we should not write to local mp in 6 months time as homeoffice advised ..

my application passed to a case worker on 18/03/2010 but still waiting for decission though i applied in 21/01/2010

its three month pass now & i just talked to a lady in hmoff. today, she was really good . she cheked my application but nothing came out. still waiting for consideration.. she told me hopefully next moth i may hear somthing from them.

Spoke to the HO again today still my application hasn't been given to a caseworker and told not to call till 6 months after application. applied in DEC 2009 got COA in JAN. Just doing my head in considering RC being issued for JAN'10 application and mine hasn't even been given to a caseworker.

I reckon its very variable, depends on case being straightforward or not. So far we know that at least two ppl on this forum got their RC from applications done in Dec 2009 and at least one from Jan 2010. But its not a rule.

I have contacted the HO via e-mail to inform them about planned non-urgent but inevitable traveling plan ( huge family event) in late may but no reply from them yet.

Doesntcompute thats very true!

In fact to keep the forum updated and hopeful these are the names of the latest successful EEA2 applicants on this particular forum who received their EEA2 within the 6 month time frame:
Forza, Doesntcompute, Wet, Hunpak, Jsukyn and Fagerland.

So lets keep the faith people :) !

I applied for EEA4 on the 15th of March.
I got a COA dated as 9 April 2010. And today I got another COA, dated as 16 April 2010.

Both COA have same reference number and same case ID number.

The only difference is how they spelt my name. I have "de" as part of my name. First time they didn't put it as part of the surname (as it was also in my previous residence card), and now they did (as in my current passport).

So they just updated it this now.

But I am trying to make sense on how they deal with my case.
As per COA, it was the same person registering and sending the letters to me.

I thought that once they send the COA, the application moves forward. My case is pretty straight forward and I sent load of evidence, etc.

So, what was the reason for the person to go back to my file and send another COA?

Hi Glauco,
I believe your case was just given to a caseworker and he/she spotted the error.
Finger cross, your passport will get back to you soon. Remember election is around the corner and labour are fighting for more vote through all means.

Am highly new to this forum and i do not want it to be down or not updated. Because it has really and really help me. Thanks to everyone.
I would like to share my experience with u all, l came to UK as a student to study PG diploma which l studied after i applied for post study work visa for 2 years which was turned cos l didnt produce certicate but l produced my result and transcripts, l was asked to appeal which l did but lost the appeal. During the process of my appeal l applied for certificate of approval for marriage which was allowed, later applied for unmarried visa before our wedding in december and it was rejected without appeal saying that l have no valid stay in UK. And i was asked to go to my country and settle with my wife. But am so lucky that my wife is a British and irish. Initially, l was dealing with HO/UKBA with my wife British nationality but l realized they were so sturborn to grant me continue stay. All l did was to reapply under EEA laws even before our wedding because l did not want to be arrested on my wedding day even though it was approved by ukba. So after the wedding l submitted fresh application under EEA2 law in dec 2009 received COA on the 12/01/2010, in march l recalled for my passport cos it has expired. Now l have got a new passport, received letter from home office asking me to submit my old and new passports with more payslips of my wife with letter of cohabitation since february 2009 which is not required by law but l didnt want to waste time all they requested for have been submitted. My case is with case worker as l was told on thursday when l posted the documents. I hope i receive my RC soon. It has been awful. That is my experience with UKBA.

Hi hunpak, it is not a problem at all. EEA2 holders are allowed to enter the UK with or without their spouse. This only changes if the holder wants to enter the other EU member states.

Hi jajanana,
Thanks for the post and support! That's nice of you!
I wish my case was passed to the caseworker, but I guess it's too early yet. Maybe the person just processed, put in the pile again, and after a week did the same work all again! :-)

Hello,

Sent our application on March 17th and have yet to receive a certificate of application, is this normal? Looking at the last few pages, it seems that most people got letters within a few weeks, but it's now been well over a month for us. Starting to get worried.

Thanks Jajanana! Which number do I call? I tried to call a number this morning but after pushing some buttons and a series of recorded messages, I was cut off..
