Hi there. I applied for residence card (I'm married to an Italian national) on the 23rd of February. Received my Certificate of Application early March. It has now been nearly 7 months and 2 weeks ago we sent a letter requesting an update on my application. I am now going to miss my best friend's wedding in 2 weeks time as I don't have my passport and can't travel. I am getting very impatient and need to travel next month also. I have tried to contact the number provided on the COA but it isn't possible to speak to someone to get an update. I don't really want to request for my passport to be returned before my application has been processed. Please let me know if there is anything else I can do or perhaps another number that I can try where I can actually speak to an individual?
