I did not have any private health insurance as a student.
So when I applied (2016-Sep), I only had, at best, 4 years of continuous employment (FT and PT) which isn't enough. Fair enough.
And, to be sure, looks like I can only apply for PR in 2019. Again, fair enough I guess.
My issue is with the way Home Office handled my PR application.
They did not notify me I failed to get PR, instead they sent me a document which has, on its front, "UK residence documentation for a national of an EEA state". This led me to believe I had the document for which I had applied for.
If you go to buy milk in the store and the cashier hands you a bottle that says "milk", is a layperson expected to put it under a microscope to see if it's actually milk? (best analogy I could come up with)
At the end of the day, yes, I should've been more careful and done some more research to be sure I had the right document. That's all on me.
At this point I'm just trying to get my £1,300 back, as I feel deceived by the Home Office.
