EU Settlement Scheme ( Response letter from Home Office)

Post by imbik » Wed Mar 06, 2019 9:33 am

First of all, thanks Obie and Kamoe for your valuable comments regarding my question on this topic;
eea-route-applications/confused-between ... 74461.html

However, I decided to take this subject further not only for me but for any other EU family member only with EEA Family Permit and asked the same question to Home office by email, so here is a quote from their reply;

'' Thank you for your question about what the EU Settlement Scheme is and who should apply. Your question asks for clarification as to whether any EU family member will be able to apply to the Settlement Scheme after 30 March 2019 if they can prove their residency in the UK.
If you are an EU citizen or the non-EU family member of an EU citizen, you can apply for the EU Settlement Scheme to obtain the UK immigration status you will need once the UK leaves the EU. The public test phase of the EU Settlement Scheme is now live. To participate you must be resident in the UK and must have:
• A valid passport if you are an EU Citizen
• A biometric residence card if you are a non-EU family member of an EU citizen

If you do not meet the eligibility requirements of the public test phase you will be able to apply once the scheme fully opens from 30 March 2019. From this date there will be alternative ways of verifying your identity including by postal route.''

To my understanding (according to the last paragraph), if you are an EU citizen or non-EU family member of an EU citizen and if you can prove your residency in the UK with some of these documents described here;
https://www.gov.uk/guidance/eu-settleme ... -residence

then YES you can apply (by the way, ironically it still doesn't say clearly '' without residence card'').

Please leave your comment regarding this, thanks

That is what I said here, where I quote the fact that you can use another document that is not a residence card.

Hi.

Not sure if I understand your question properly but..

I applied for EU settlement for my father in law, he never had a residence card or any sort of papers since he moved here and he got settled status in less than 24 hours.

Hope that answer it xx

That would be because he's a EU national applying with a EU passport ? The OP's confusion is regarding non-EU nationals, and if/when they can apply without a RC (which is clearly answered in links above).

I see. I clearly did not understand the question. I’m sorry. But yes he is a EU national with EU passport. Lived and worked in UK almost all his life and never had any residency papers 😊

A friend of mine (EU citizen) showed me the letter he received from Home office after his Settlement Scheme application. This reminded me another question;

If a non-EU national (without Residence card) obtains pre-settled status, will he/she be given a kind of card (lets say pre-settled card) showing his/her status in the UK? In other words if it is only a letter, how these people can travel to their non_EU country and come back in the future?

For instance, I travel to Turkey time to time and Airliners accept me only if I show them my Residence Card.

Thanks
