I get email to post passport to liver pool
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?

It says on the website, depending on individual cases especially with non EEA
> you will be either asked to send your Passport in for identity verification but returned within 4 working days ( excluding the time it takes from it to get to them)
> you will be required to book a biometrics appointment or scan your current brc using the '' eu exit app''

So essentially its standard procedure.. But waiting time for non eea tends to take longer from what i've read on this platform, average of 6 weeks, some people received their decision 3 months after applying.
Hope that little info is useful

Hello, here is my bit in case it helps anyone.

I am the non-EU unmarried partner of an EU national with settled status. I applied for Pre-Settled.

Applied online: 25 June
Biometrics: 30 June (Croydon)
CoA: 2 July at 10:15 am
Decision Letter: 2 July at 12:04

For the online application I submitted a power bill since it only asked me to show residence for a single day in the past 6 months. For the relationship evidence I only submitted my EEA Family Permit (which I just got on June 1st) stamped by the immigration officer at Gatwick. This was all scanned files, did not send my passport anywhere.

I was surprised to get a decision almost immediately after the CoA, in fact I found the whole process super quick, from what I had been reading on this forum I thought I had a couple of weeks to wait and was even sure they would reply asking for more documentation. Now just waiting for the card to arrive, good luck to everyone.

Received an email today saying that I have been granted pre-settled status - 3 months after application! Further information regarding BRC and official letter is on the way.
Timeline (Tier 2 visa, married to EU citizen for 1 year)
Applied online on the 6th of April (made a mistake with using my Tier 2 BRP)
Got asked to send in my documents by post (they received it on 9th of April)
Multiple calls and emails to EU settlement scheme enquiring about the delay (the delay was due to me submitting my Tier 2 BRP) + a letter from my MP at the end of June
Biometrics appointment invitation by mail (20th of June)
COA - never received one - no idea why..?
3rd of july - sent them another email through their online enquiry form asking for an update
Today (4th of July) - received a reply to that enquiry, where it said that I've been granted pre-settled status and a letter confirming it along with information on BRC is on the way.

Non eu spouse, not holding any BRC, no EEA Family permit.

Applied: 15 APRIL 2019
Biometrics appointment: 17 APRIL 2019 (Croydon)
Decision: Pre-settled status 04 JUL 2019 @ 02:00 PM
Waiting : BRP CARD

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

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...

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.

At least that's what I'm hoping for because we too had an appointment there and are nervously waiting now :wink:

Question for those who already got their BRP:
Do you have to get NIN? or is it printed on the back of the card?
I don't have NIN and I'm waiting for my BRP card (I got pre-settled, didn't have family permit when applied), maybe I should just wait and see if they'll give automatically a NIN?

Thanks

Nobody would give you a NIN automatically. The NIN is not printed on the BRP or anything.

Once you get your BRP, you need to apply for a NIN and go to an interview.
