Good news!

I phoned them again today and been informed that our application was processed and a package was sent to me on 15/10/12. This obviously happened after I phoned them on 15/10/12.

30mins later the postman knocked on my door with all our documents including the PR.

I will however still write a letter of complaint. It can only help them implementing better systems for the poor souls that needs to go through the same process.

Fantastic Jules!
This reinforces the point that after six months, if at first they fob you off, call, call again. And yes, do complain anyway. It does everyone else a favour.

EEA2 instead of EEA4?

Post by Fennec » Fri Oct 19, 2012 11:45 am

Applied on 25th June for EEA3&EEA4, received by Ho on 26th June 2012.
EEA3 permanent residence card received 14th Sept 2012 dated 5th of Sept 2012
COA for EEA4 received 14th of Sept Dated 5th Sept 2012.

On 16 October received my status Document confirming my status as An family member of an EEA National dated 3rd October 2012 instead of Permanent Residence for which I have applied.

Could Anyone tell me how to deal with this situation as for me it s a mistake from the European case worker.

Ciao!

Hi there!

Just want to share our timeline and ask another question:

EEA3/EEA4 sent on 24/07/2012
Received by HO 25/07/2012
CoA for EEA4 received 12/10/2012

Does anyone knows why there is no sign of PR for EEA3 yet? (As far as I understand from this forum people usually getting CoA together with PR for EEA3?)

Thanks alot!

No hard and fast rule about that. Some come at the same time, sometimes it takes a couple more weeks. Based on previous posts, though, you might want to give them a call if you haven't sighted the EEA3 by the end of Oct.

Didn't they write anything on the covering letter as of why?

Contact UKBA by phone to enquire. If they won't give you a satisfactory explanation, then write to them.
Be good.

Ciao!
What evidence have you provided with the application to prove that you, the non-EEA national, have been living in the UK for 5 years?

There are two options:

1. The caseworker made a mistake.
2. The case worker was not satisfied by the 5 years residence evidence for you so he issued a RC.

I have provided joint bank account and bills for continuous period of five years.
If he was not satisfied he should have asked me to provide more evidence not issue RC as family member of the EEA National as I have got already one expiring on december 2013.

Thanks[/u]
