My timeline:
Applied online - 25th May
Biometric enrolment appointment - 28th May
COA - 3rd June
Status outcome: 3rd June

I was on a tier 2 visa and I applied with my passport for pre-settled status as a spouse of the EU person who has been granted settled status. We recently got married and I've provided a marriage certificate along with proof of relationship over the last 2 years (shared address: leases, shared bank account etc.)
when did you get married ?

Thanks for made me correct. Is there any difference between permit and card except of permit stamp on passport. just for my information please
Today I have received my non Eu son's settled status confirmation letter by email. In the letter mentioned BRC is on the way and will be arrived in 7 days.
One thing make me confuse my son is non eu national and he came in UK 2 years before on non eu family member visa valid for 6 months. After expiry of visa i did not apply for further visa due to some reason. Now when i got my settled status as EU national live in UK last 15 years I had applied for my son who is non EU and he got the same status where as i have heard less then 5 years will get the pre settled status. If someone have same experience please share. Thanks

Applied on 13/05/2019
submitted bio-metric on 21/05/2019
COA received by email on 22/05/2019
settled status confirmed on 30/05/2019
waiting for BRC expecting in 7 days.
Today 03/06/2019 received BRC valid for 10 years mentioned EU settlement- Indefinite Leave to Remain.

Good morning,

I hope you are all okay.

Finally, today I have received my pre-setled status after 2 months waiting. To calrify, I am holder of Tier 4 visa, but I applied using my passport.

My Timeline :-

Application Made:- 30/03/2019
Bio Done:- 11/04/2018
CoA Received:- 22/04/2019
Status Received:- 31/05/2019

Please who is still waiting contact your MP this will speed things up for you ! If you keep waiting without further actions your application will not move as fast as it should be. My application stayed at the same stage for 45 days until I contacted my MP and within two weeks I received my decision.

May i ask what did you wrote in the letter to your MP??

Yes I applied with passport as I did not have a BRC
I applied for PR 3 times got rejected on each occasion
for PR application I included an extensive cover letter explaining my circumstance and all the attempts I had made to contact ex to get relevant Docs and her ID
for settlement application no cover letter sent just attachment of the docs I mentioned
Hope this helps

@gigtom

You mentioned you had included an extensive covering letter and later you said no covering letter. Can you advised?

Also i would like to mention one thing here, my PR refused, ILR 10 year refused, First tribunal on basis of 10 year refused, then i changed solicitor he reopened my PR appeal which was with drawn when i applied for 10 year ILR. It was refused again and now my upper tribunal is in process.

My RC expired in June 2016 and since then i am fighting for my PR or ILR. I am over 21 family member of EU national dad. Still living together since he moved to UK in 2010. And his Settle status granted on 9th May 2019, took only 7 days to process.

Thats why I was asking what did u mention in your covering letter? Please if you can paste here after deleting personal data.

Many thanks

I included a cover letter for my PR application. The reason for writing a cover letter is to explain why you cannot get hold of certain documents that are required for the application and to further give home office information that they would otherwise not have. Despite the cover letter my application was still refused

For my Settlement Status application i did not need to include a cover letter.

its strange that the home office has decided to hold on to your passport/passports?. You need to speak to them about this and get a clear answer as to their reasons

My suggestion will be to wait until you get your passport which is a basic requirement you will need to apply for the settlement scheme. The settlement scheme does not require a lot of documentary evidence like PR application as most of the checks are done by home office.If you have been working in the last 5 years you should be fine or if you can link your dads application to yours when you apply even better.

i hope this helps

Hi everyone.

I also received my pre-settled status yesterday (after ~2 month waiting).

My timeline:

My background: Was on Tier4 visa before applying. 8 years in the country total. Got married a year ago. My husband applied and received his settled status in the trial phase.
Applied: 30th of March. Used passport as my ID (did not mention/scan/submit my Tier 4 BRP at any point). The system told me I am eligible for the pre-settled status, but I thought to provide evidence that I has been in the country for more than 5 years. Here I made a mistake, since I must have been married for more than 5 years to be eligible for one. The system also asked me to submit my biometrics. I did not post any documents anywhere.
Biometrics: 4th of April
COA: 5th of April

Then numerous calls back and forth with no success

Important call 1 : called on the 24 of April and I was told that my application has been downgraded from settled to pre-settled status . They confirmed that I must have been married for 5 years to qualify for the settled status. Since it is not the case, I can only receive pre-settled status
Important call 2: On the 5th of may called again and EU resolution centre offered me to escalated my my case since i waited for a month already.

Called a week after the escalation and I was told that now I got assigned a caseworker and I have to wait to receive a decision

Application outcome: Got an email at 5:30pm on the 3rd of June saying that I got my pre-settled status

Now waiting for my BRC card ( to arrive in 7 days hopefully).

Good luck everyone who is still waiting and congratulations to those who received it!

@gigtom

Many thanks for the clarification.

Yeah thats exactly what i will do after receiving my passport to apply. And i will definitely link my application to my dad one.

My RC was from 2011 to 2016. I worked full time from 2011 to 2017 July then they stopped my right to work.

The reason of refusal (all the time) was mainly that I was earning more than my dad on which I am dependent.

So hopefully I will get it this time.

My non-eu wife has received her Pre Settled Status status can she travel with me from uk to Amsterdam for a few days holiday?

Also we live in Northern Ireland and i'm an Irish citizen would she be able to travel by road with me to Dublin Airport in the Republic to fly from there as flights are more convenient?

Hello,

I have received my BRC today. I think we will need to apply for Schengen visa from now on. Cause the new BRC doesn't mention that we Non-EU family member. I have attached a photo of my BRC for all who are wondering how does the new BRC look like.
