To be honest HO will maybe reply MP with the standard response “the application is with a senior case worker and in its final stage ..” .

That’s about it , they seriously need to reply us on our application, waiting a month not to mention 4 months!
I agree with you.. In my experience contacted Mp didn't help and I'm waiting for 5 months 😑
Hi all
I have applied on 24/04/2019 and contacted my MP twice but I am still waiting for the decision.
The reply from H.O was the standard "the application is under consideration"

Hi everyone.
When the actual processing time starts for these applications? The time you submit it or when you do your Biometric... I submitted mine in April, did biometrics in May after few days received the CoA.. And one week after got email to provide further evidence... Which I already provided but still waiting for outcome... Involved my Mp as well. Did several calls & emails.. Still same response that it's in process keep checking email. I am waiting for 5 months now if the Time starts from biometrics... Anyone else also waited or waiting that long?? It's so frustrating...
i have applied on 24/04/2019 and got my COA on June 14, nothing else after that.
I am still waiting

I spoke to them again this morning and they said that the case is with the case worker but they can not give me any further information.
They said that the case workers have many cases to go through and they will have to do it one by one.
They said I should give it another few weeks and call them again if nothing comes through.
It's taken too long already ☹️

Hey, yes no probs
I have been in the UK for 20 years.
I lost my asylum case and overstayed.
Then got eea (fm) for 5 years(2011-2016) then separated from EU family member and didn't apply for permanent.
I applied and got FLR for 2.5 years in 2016.
Then I applied for Euss scheme on 24/04/2019.
Its complicated!!

Hi everyone,
It is stunning to see how much you help each other :). Also, congrats everyone on getting their preferred statuses.
My situation is as follows and I would appreciate any guidance: I have got an EEA family visa - extended fm (durable partner) of an EU citizen with a pre-settled status. He is, therefore, EU, I am nonEU.We have been together for 2 years (the first year i studied in the UK, then moved back home) and in the last year, we have been spending together approximately a week each month. Our employers are very flexible with us working from outside of the office. I will move to the UK in January and we plan to marry in the UK in February

1) do i need to apply for RC first and then to EUSS or I can apply for EUSS straight?
2) will I have COA confirming the right to work?
3) is it better to apply before or after the marriage takes place?

Thanks in advance!

I think you must apply after your marriage takes place because you have already planned it right? You can straight away go for EEA Family Permit (Direct family member). Also, you can receive the COA with work in that category if you provide all original identification documents.

I have applied for a durable partnership and it has been now a month, desperately waiting for results.

Hi everyone
This is my timeline. I applied online as I do not have a biometrics residence card.

Application type: Non EU
Applied on: 18th Aug 2019
Biometrics: 22nd Aug 2019
COA: 4th October 2019 - 4.04pm
Settled status: 4th October 2019 - 4.08pm

My husband and children with Portuguese passports applied and got status within 2 days of application.

Hope it helps someone.
hi sista
Congratulation.
Can you tell us, what type of visa did you have previously?
I had permanent residence vignette sticker. I'm not ready to naturalize yet so applied for EU settlement

How long did you have to wait after applying to get your passport/ID card back?

I need to travel and my spouse needs to register at the GP etc and the HO has her only forms of photo ID.

Really? Where did you apply from?
I dont know, it would be another family permit as a direct member and then EUSS? That would be completly crazy, I got so stressed for the first time and they check all the same things again and again

You dont need to send passport unless they ask you to. Its scanned when you go to give in your biometrics and you take it back straight after.

Hi Deeq
Congrats. If you don't mind will you please brief your case. I have applied for my mother she got the family permit for 6 months from Pakistan and after her arrival in UK I have applied her pre settled status but didn't get any confirmation from HO so far. Though it's not so long just applied on 07/10/2019. I'm little worried about outcome. Thanks

Is this the right thread? My spouse is applying to the EU Settlement Scheme as a non-EEA citizen. The application form said they need her passport as ID since she doesn't have a biometric ID card.

I am non-EU, applied under the scheme and was requested to send my passport Twice!
The passport was returned within 4-5 days on both occasions.
