The fundamental difference between the BR Card and a BR Permit is that the cards are issued to reflect a status that the person is legally entitled to. There is an inherent right and the card acts as a recognised document that reflects the status granted because of the right. A BR Permit on the other hand is something issued by the government to someone to perform a specific activity for a specific time.

Basically, the card is given to you because you have a right already, while the permit is what gives you a right to do something.

Morning all,

Today is my biometric appointment, I applied for Settle status on 5th June.

Just one question.

They mentioned in the email which I received that I have to bring all original documents which i uploaded online during my application. Are they going to check them properly or what will happen?

Please advise who had given there biometric and what happened exactly?
Dear they don’t bother even what documents you upload unless home office direct them. I have 3 time experience for biometric with 3 different office for my family members but never asked me for originals.

I found this one
" The calculation of residency should be in accordance with the qualifying years e.g. if the residence period relied upon was 13 October 2014 to 12 October 2019 each qualifying year within this period should run from 13 October to 12 October of the following year "
They just sent me an email from R centre and said I have to wait for the case worker to contact me and Year calculation would start as you said for example June 2014 till June 2019 that’s 5 years
I just have received an email to provide my marriage certificate to prove my relationship to my Eu wife and I am here for 5 years as I claimed
That’s what they said in the email
I have sent it
Hope they will give me settled status
This case is going on for 3 months now
This home office are not serious on what they are doing I did my biometric 16th April receive my Coa 23rd April can you imagine I called them after 6 week later asking them what's happening they told me i should wait let them check if the required documents after checking he said no all is fine and he escalated my case last week Thursday I received email from home office atlas saying they are waiting for my biometric I called them again the man said it was an error I should ignore it that they are dealing with my application I shouldn't worry

Your 5 years completes in march 2020 if you married in 2015, assuming you married within the UK.

Not sure what you mean by 6 months in each calendar year. Your residence clock starts from date of marriage in the UK and you need 5 completed years. You have misunderstood the calculations based on your previous posts.

Hi Guys,

I've been following this thread for a while, so just thought i'd give an update incase it helps anyone out.

I'm non-eu spouse of an Irish national. I have been living in the UK since September 2016 on a tier 2 visa. I got married to my husband in August 2018. My husband did NOT apply for settled status as he does not need to.
I was on a Tier 2 visa with a BRP and not an EU residence card as we only got married recently. So, we just waited to directly apply for the settlement scheme.

I applied with my passport and just our marriage certificate.

Date of application: 17th of May 2019
Date of Biometrics submission: 20th May 2019
Date of COA: 10th of June 2019
Date of additional document request: 10th of June 2019 asked for husband's EU ID (passport) and proof of his residence for 6 months. Asked for one piece of dated evidence within the last 6 months.
Date of reply: 10th of June 2019, submitted scanned copy of passport and husband's P60 and Council Tax bill.
Date of granting letter: 11th June 2019.
Outcome: Pre-settled status granted with BRC on the way.

Good Luck everyone! and if anybody has any questions, don't hesitate to ask!

I just did my biometrics today and wonder whether there is anything to do besides waiting anxiously.

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.)
Update

BRC - first delivery attempted by DX on 7th June, but I didn't get a letter about redelivery until 10th June. Today 13th June finally got my BRC.

Anyone else made the mistake of applying with a BRP card? (I.e currently on a tier4/tier2/etc visa). I applied at the very beginning of April, was asked to send in the documents, did that’, got them back and nothing since. Application status is still the same online asking to send in my documents before application can be started. No request to go do biometrics or anything at all. Called resolution centre multiple times and supposedly everyone who applied with BRP card has their application on hold ? Anyone who applied like that got their decision or any progress yet? Thank you!!
Hi I actually I have same problem in currently holding brc for 1 year now and I applied for settled status as I have permanent residence so it's been now 1 month and 15 days I didn't hear anything back from them
