our permanent residence cards had finally arrived !
below is my timeline:
we done as joint application for PR (I am EU and my husband non-eu as my dependant)
Application first send: 01/02/2016, not money taken out of the account, 45 days later on 15/03/16 everything was sent back to my house saying they could not withdrawn the money of my account. I then found out the expire date on the credit card was wrong. I was annoyed by the fact that I kept calling to the "helpline" for the fact that the money was not taken and for 4 weeks they said it was normal and I should wait
anyway we resent everything back on the same day: 15/03/16 with postal order this time
Biometrics letter for my husband received on 27/03/16
Coa letter received for him on 24/04/16
his Biometrics card received 16/9/2016
our passports and my permanent residence card also arrived on 16/09/2016 in a different envelope

so at the time that we sent our application the average processing time was 4 months for EU, even with a dependant non-eu, I guess now with the brexit things are slower but it coming out on the 6 months sharp!
I have a very straight application case as I have been continuously working for the past 10 years without any gap, all paperwork needed in place as well a british son which I had proved his rights 4 years ago
for this experience I can tell that every single case is different and unfortunately we depend on whomever take your case really. for instance I have read before when they have a problem withdrawing your money in some cases they will send a letter asking for an alternative payment. I guess we were just unlucky!
Good luck everyone!

  • 1st phone call to HO — 31 May 2016 (It had been a month, I was expecting the biometrics letter)
  • Biometrics letter received — 2 June 2016 (dated 18 May, it appeared to have gotten lost!)
  • Biometrics enrolled — 3 June 2016
  • Phone call from HO — 6 June 2016 (crossed wires: they didn't know I received the biometrics enrolment letter)
  • COA right to work received — 9 June 2016 (letter dated 7 June)
