Called HO for an update. They Told me someone will get back in 5 working days. No one did


Did you send the application yourself or through Solicitor?

26.05.2017
Called HO again for an update. Got a call today(31.05.17) saying:
they cannot tell me anything at this time.
it's under consideration.

I ask about the timeframe.

He said when the application passes 6 Month they can't give any timeline.

This is very very painful and depressing. First, they ask not to contact before 6 months. After 6 (7 + now ) months, they say its been more than 6 months, so we cannot give any timeline?

HO took 14 Months to precess My EEA 2 Application in 2012/13.
It's going in the same direction.

I have read several opinions/advice from here but really confused.

Should I keep on pushing over the phone?
Should I Write a letter?
Should I see My MP (NO MP till June 8 )

Any advice on next possible steps and options I have would highly appreciate

Hi everyone !

I'm non-EEA married to EEA, received my PR card in October 2016. Just checked the government website thinking to download the application for my husband as he hasn't applied for PR yet.

And I saw this:

"Your residence card won’t be valid after the UK leaves the EU.

A new scheme will be available for EU citizens and their family members to apply to stay in the UK after it leaves the EU.

Sign up for email updates to find out when you’ll be able to apply to stay in the UK under the new scheme and what steps you’ll need to take."

https://www.gov.uk/apply-for-a-uk-resid ... dence-card

Does this affect residence card only ? Not the PERMANENT residence card ? The so-called new scheme will turn our hard work into nothing - came here for university in 2007, working and contributing to this country for so many years, went through all sorts of home office applications.

Can someone please advise? Appreciate that.

As far as i think you will be fine, and UK is still in the EU, so you have much time for apply for BC and also two more transitional years we have,
