I thought one is allowed to keep passport when applying for EU Settlement Scheme.
Did they tell you why they wanted you to post it to them?
Welcome to immigrationboards.com!
It says on the website, depending on individual cases especially with non EEA
It seems like a lot of the unusual delays with processing occur when applicants (including myself) have the biometrics appointment at the Croyden centre. There was another poster who'd been waiting for months. Same venue. It does make me wonder if it's something specific to that centre...AngiCeramics wrote: ↑Thu Jul 04, 2019 7:48 pmNon eu spouse, not holding any BRC, no EEA Family permit.

All the process took almost 3 months for me. I had never called Home office until 2 or 3 weeks ago and they told me they would speed the case up since I'd been waiting for so long and my application seemed correct. Nothing happened, so I called again 3 days ago, and they told me same thing, they would speed my case, and if I didn't get any news in two weeks I should call again. But today I got the e-mail! Now waiting for the BRP card.
Do you know if I need to get NIN, or with this new online system is enough for work?
Thanks! Good luck
Could it be that the centre in Croyden is just larger and processes more applicants? Then even if the centre has the same relative rate of problematic cases (for example 5%), it would still have many more problematic cases in absolute numbers.
