I applied for EEA 4 on 8.05.2012
Had requested my passport back, so received the passport back on 01.06.2012 along with the confirmation of application.
Now its been over 4 months since I applied, any ideas as to how long it may take? Mine is retention of rights based on 4.5 years of marriage. Would that make a difference to the processing times?
Also, in Jan13 it will 6 years since I got married, will I be able to apply for Citizenship in Jan13 ?
For your citizenship, you'll typically need to prove 5 years of treaty rights as well as 1 full year of PR. While these can certainly overlap, it's going to be easiest to prove the full year of PR if you can show your EEA4 to demonstrate that. If you are successful with your EEA4 it will be proof that the UKBA agrees that you had 5 years of treaty rights as of May 8th, so assuming you get your EEA4 I'd suggest to apply on or just after May 8th next year. Also when you apply make sure that you were in the UK on that exact date 5 years previously and not overseas on a holiday/business/etc.
