Hi BrazUK, really happy for you. Can you tell me how did they post the package to you by First of Second class recorded? I called them on Monday they said the decision has been made and the documents were sent by second class recorded. Still nothing came through. Called them yesterday and asked for tracking number. But it appears they only posted them on Wednesday. Really hoping to receive it today. Its driving me mad :(

They sent as Second Class Recorded signed for. Probaly you will receive it tomorrow.

It's nearly 5 months that Im still waiting for my RC.
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
Hello Everybody!
I'm still awaiting too. Applied in April for EEA. In July requested both passports for emergency travel. I was seriously ill, finally had treatment in UK. I've informed them that we haven't traveled. Passports still at home. Silence from HO. They're rude on phone, don't tell anything....
Here's brief story.
Application sent 10/04/2010
HO received 13/04/2010
COA dated 18/05/2010
It'll be 6 months next week...I want to see my mom...I want to go on Holiday... :(
Is it true that waiting time depends of applicants citezenship? I'm russian. There's an opinion that they can keep it as long as they want just because I'm russian.... :evil:
HELOOOOO! IT's me again))) I'just received my RC dated 07/10/10. But I rceived it only at friday 15/10/10,so they've issued just before the end of 6 months period. My RC is placed on A4 paper, but it's more plus than minus because they told me that if my passport expires i don't have to reaaply for new RC, because it wasn't sticked to my old passport. So I have to travel with this paper every time. Slightly inconviniet but anyway I'm so happy! WISH ALL THE BEST TO PEOLPE WHO STILL WAIT!!!

The nightmare is finally over for us, as of today!

Note, we first submitted our application, without any errors in March.. It was then returned to us (landing on our door step 1 month late due to the Royal Mail) asking for health insurance, even though we'd already included it. We then resubmitted the application just as we'd sent it the first time. Fabulous efficiency, I'm sure you'll agree.

It took 5 months and 4 days to return. Sent on May 17th

What may be of interest is that I'm a dual national.. British/Irish.. And I used my Irish nationality though I've never lived in Ireland. I lived in Turkey for 6 years.. But my partner still got his RC.. So there's hope for dual nationals at the moment.

Good luck to everyone else!

I did the same thing like u as well. not sure they will use it or not.

Just to give an update, my husband who is brazilian applied for the EEA2 in May (I'm Italian), application was received by the HO on 18/05, COA received about 2 months ago and now we are getting to 5 months of waiting. I really want to believe that before the 6 months deadline he will receive his visa but reading this forum makes me think that they don't care about this deadline at all and the truth is that no one will do anything about it because it takes time and money to sue these bastards.

Since we got married in May (before sending the application) we didn't have a chance to go on our honeymoon because HO have our passports, it is terrible!

Hi all! Good news! My husband received his residence visa on 18/10/10
issued on: 15/10/10
5 months is the time it took.

Now I can finally book our honeymoon :)

All the best for you all, hang in there!

Hi,

If you provided HO with a pre paid envelope like I did, tracking that number was useless for me. I tracked that bloody number every day for 5 months and even when HO did send the RC it still says "Sorry no packages found for that reference" on the Royal Mail website.

I didn't include any prepaid return envelopes, am reffering to the certificate of application when an EEA 2 application is submitted! I still haven't received it!

Currently it is taking atleast 4-6 weeks to recieve COA, I understand that the dates you ahve provided are dd/mm and not mm/yy, if however you have not received the COA after 6 weeks call the HO and confirm if they can send you a COA.
