EU Settlement Scheme & Toufik Lounes cases

Post by Malik_01 » Sat Mar 30, 2019 3:02 pm

Hi,

I am non-EU family member of Dual Briitsh and EU national. I need to know whether anyone else on the forum is going through a paper based application?
It was very hard today as the full scheme is launched, but I finally got through someone who would send me the paper based application under the Lounes case. These are assigned to special caseworkers and will be dealt under the new scheme. Wondering what information others have on this?

I will keep you posted!

Thank you,

Abdullah

She said she talk with manager him said that’s way is taken so long cos is Brp card and I’m dual citizenship Polish and British etc but what she said is we should use paper form to apply and now them waiting for guidance how to do it ????
I said what ? it take them 5 weeks to tell me this we should use paper form I been calling every week and every person said everything is fine and under process .
So I get really upset I told her we can’t wait to long cos my wife brp card is about to expire soon so she so she goone to check with manger and put me on hold she back and said our application is ok just slow

But any way what I want say apply with Passport looks less complicated cos u get coa and biometric done as one of our friends done

You can only request it via the HO: each application has the applicant names, DOB and ref no on top, so I cannot, I am afraid, upload it, nor circulate for obvious reasons.

Call the HO, tell them you are applying for Lounes, and they will send you a paper application form (yes, no other way to do it) with you name, DOB and ref no at the top. This can take up to 4 weeks to arrive (mine arrived in 3/4 days).

Application is 44 pages long, asking the usual questions: your ID, sponsor ID, proof of relationship/address, proof sponsor has been exercising treaty rights pre and post naturalisation. You'll get a letter asking you to do BRP (unless you have it already) and note that HO said paper applications may take up to 6 months. I call every 3/4 weeks to check the status.

Thank you for your comment. I really appreciate it.

I contacted the HO and they said they cannot send it to me unless I provide all the information. I think they don't want to share the form. I find it strange because it's just an administrative form there shouldn't be nothing secret about it really.

As you had it in hand, is there anything special or tricky about it?

Not at all. I don't remember what they asked me specifically, but I think things like my nationality, my sponsor nationalities, DOBs, when entered into the country, status of our relationship, when sponsor naturalised, whether he retained his nationality, as you can see nothing really major. I think it's probably a sort of checklist list they have to make sure Lounes is the right route for you. I've copied below some info I've included in some recent posts.

If your sponsor is a dual national (EEA/UK), you can only apply via the pre-settled status via the Lounes route. This can only be done via a paper form application. Call the HO, tell them you are applying for Lounes, and they will send you a paper application form (yes, no other way to do it) with you name, DOB and ref no at the top. This can take up to 4 weeks to arrive (mine arrived in 3/4 days).
