How long do they take to return the appication, if the application is not in order or in need of more documents? My friend's wife applied two weeks back.

I actually sent application the second time, because first application was returned.
I sent my application first time 1st of August, but it was returned after two weeks of waiting. Because I didn't attach my husband's WRS documents.

Unfortunately, they don't ask to send any documents anymore, they just return application back with letter which says about needed additional documents. But 4 months it's a quite long time to wait so You should hope to get Residence Card without additional documents

I think you should have enclosed your passport !If it was in DVLA,you should wait or recall the passport before you send the documents to UKBA.
UKBA is more important than DVLA

IDENTITY is crucial!

thanks everyone. because my bf send his passport to DVLA before we decied to do eea2, and we though we can send his ID card, but his ID card was expaire. and he travel a lot so cant really send possport. do they issue coa without by bf's id? Do they must issue coa before they issue the RC? they didnt send back the documents and ask more document, so i dont know my statuation now. but we are try to get my bf new ID now.

btw, when we send the application we send a copy of my bf's passport, is that i still need to send the original passport? and also do you think this why they didn't send my application back and didnt issue my coa??

Hello there!
I've got a question about COA.
I received COA about a week ago, after applying EEA2
Does COA mean that I'll get Residence Card or it means only that HO got my documents ?
Thank You for any replying :)

EE1/EE2 submitted 11th March
Received by HO on 12th March
COA issued dated 28th March
Case ID No on COA
No other Ref No
Now we're on count down mode

The question is; What are the differences in a COA given the following scenarios I have observed here:
1. COA with a Ref No (No Case ID)
2. COA with a Case ID (No Ref No)
3. COA with a Ref No & Case ID

Does any of the above have any meaning to issuance of RC?
Finally, received RC on Monday dated 1st September, issued 12 days before the end of the six months and all documents back. We feel truly blessed and all weight on our shoulder depleted.

Best wishes to everyone!

Do not worry, now they are still processing April application.
6 months already, some of us still waiting, but as the other people example,
it will take nearly 7 month arrive to your hand.
still keep positive waiting

called the HO on the 30.9.2010 and was advised COA would be sent out in a day or two(hopefully 1st or 4th of oct) dont know why it has taken this long?!? compared to chIrl and bombom lucky arent you.

does anyone know if letters are being sent to the home address or the correspondence address? because i have a different correspondence address to my home address

Can I send 2nd passport with EEA2 without Family Permit?

Post by cmdawson » Tue Oct 05, 2010 3:08 pm

Hi all,
I'm trying to figure out how to do this without losing my passport for 6 months. I can get a 2nd US passport valid for 2 years, but this will obviously not have my current 6-month family permit included. Do you think this would work or am I absolutely required to send the passport that has the family permit?

The COA is an official confirmation or your rights to live and work while your application is being processed, In a way its a confirmation of them recieving your documents.

The HO are required by law to acknowledge reciept of RC applications by issuing a COA.

Bottom line its not a guarantee but its a start, all things being equal we'll all get our RC.
