EU Settlement scheme for non-EU members - does not work

Post by Blacksea28 » Sat Mar 30, 2019 7:13 pm

Hello,
I am non-EU who holds EEA family permit visa, arriived to the UK with EEA spouse on 29th of March.

Anyone who is non-eu, made an application successfully today(30.03.2019)???

I am aware that before 29th it was not possible in test phase but today, there is a confirmation on UK.gov website tht scheme is fully open and verybody can make the application.

In android app, there is only resident card holder option is valid for non-eu applicants and no possibility to apply with passport.

Indeed, in Android app, there is no option for non-eu to scan passport. It only gives an option for non-eu who holds BRC. :(

You can fill it online by visiting the 'gov' website.

It works if you tick the box "apply online and post". You will need to download your indentity on a website. After completing the form onine you will be directing to another website to book your biometric appointment. Without it you application will not be considered.

Where can you see that “apply online and post”? Is that in the android app? Does it mean you don’t need to wait for them to send you a form?

My biometric appointment letter says that I will need to bring all original documents which I have downloaded on a website. Also I was advised to upload them on a UKVCAS. It says YOU MUST DOWNLOAD them before your biometric appointment due. Be aware that it will cost you money if you book premium biometric appointment.

Hi Romy

Did you already hold a biometric residence permit e.g Tier 2 or Tier 4 before applying? I have only been asked to post my passport to them but no mention of biometric appointment. I linked my application with my husband (EEA national) but not sure if I should book another biometric appointment not sure if I should book this anyway. Current BRP(Tier 2 is valid until 2021).

Thanks

Hi Hayley

Did you already hold a biometric residence permit e.g Tier 2 or Tier 4 before applying? - I do have biometric residence permit but under limited leave to remain (expired in 2017). But I am Non-EU family member and my immigration route under EEA law. All my documents within HO are related to my ex-spouse who are EU/ British citizen.

I have only been asked to post my passport to them but no mention of biometric appointment. - it means that you will need to post it.

I linked my application with my husband (EEA national) but not sure if I should book another biometric appointment not sure if I should book this anyway. Current BRP(Tier 2 is valid until 2021). - probably you won't need to enrol your biometric as you already have VALID residence card/ permit.

Regarding my case, once I completed all sections online including providing my digital photo, I was redirected to the website called UKVCAS where I booked an appointment for biometric.

Hope, it helps. As I can see so far, each case is different and depends what type of information you will provide while competing you application online.

Hi,

I am non- EU family member with Permanent Residence Certificate inside my passport, I have no Biometric card.

From my understading after reading this post, I have to :
- Click on ' apply online and post' on the GOV
- after fill up all details, the GOV website will redirect me to UKVCAS
- to make appointment for my Biometric card application
- after receive my Biometric card, then only I can apply ' settle status '. But, is it by ' post' or 'android app ' to scan the Biometric card??

Thank you all!

- NO! You already will be applying for settled/ presetted status while completing application online. For example, after providing my NIN I was advised that I will be considered for settled status. Also I was advised that my application will not be considered before I enrol my biometric. You will receive unique ref number for your application once you complete it. Once you book your biometric you will see the same reference on your biometric appointment letter which you will have to bring for your appointment.

It is easy and very straightforward process. Just follow the instruction.

Hi good people, quick question for all of you.
EEA Family Member, non-bio permit.
Applied earlier this morning, after entering my NI number, a message appeared saying I would be considered for settled status. Strange since I've been here a bit over four years.
So I clicked on a link to state I've been here less, which means I was switched to pre-settled. Kind of expected that.
Now I have an application number, and I am directed to a Sopra Steria site, where the only available appointments are quite far away, in Croydon, and are £100 for a any decent slot.
Does this ring a bell? On the other end, has anyone been given settled status being here under 5 yrs?
Thanks!
Currently on EEA Family Permit valid through 08/20
Biometrics Meeting: 12.04
EEA wife and baby already granted Pre-Settled status
