EEA3 documents + time scale

Post by Elenafj » Mon Mar 05, 2012 9:31 pm

Dear All,

I am applying for the EEA3 as EU citizen. I just want to make sure I qualify for this before I send my documents. I called their helpline but not very helpful :D

I am Bulgarian citizen came to UK in Sept 2006 to study.

Applying as EU from Sept 2006 to present.

For the duration I have been working part-time and full-time and finished my Bachelor and Masters (still one module so technically a student, but working full time)

I have the Blue card Residence Certificate and no restriction of employment, for the whole period of the years I have been employed only with 2-3 month gap.

I have all my P60s from 2006 up to now with my addresses on them.

My worry is that I am missing some of my tenancy agreements from 1-2 addresses but they can be confirmed from my P60s and payslips. Do you think this would be a problem?

Also do you know how long it takes for EEA3 form for EU citizen to be approved?

Thank you :)

p60 should do the job.
You can send payslips if you want, they will show that you been working all year.

Thanks... I hope it is 4 months!

I have another question maybe you guys know cause the lady just told me I cannot be out of the country continues for 2 years

If I get the PR card... is it possible to be out of the country for more than 6 months but still apply for British citizenship next year?
I work as consultant and there is a really good job on temp contract for 6 months ... as I registered as self employed in UK so will still be exercising treaty rights if i pay my tax and all here but live abroad???

Can you help? The lady told me I will not lose the PR if I am less than 2 years... but I remember for BC you cannot be more than 3 months in the last year unless of pregnancy, child care , illness

Thanks
