Hi all,eln wrote:Application sent on 6th June and still no news.
My lawyer called Home Office last week and I gave them another call yesterday and I was told that someone will call me in 5 working days.
Anyone in the same situation?
HO call me back today and said that decision not made yet. We are really busy that's why it's take long . The only thing you can do which is wait . Anything from your side ama26ama26 wrote:Still nothing from my side I've literally been checking on this forum all the time to see June applications updates. Well I also called Home Office again today. They took my details to call me back. Hopefully I will either receive a response before they call or they will call to say a decision has been made.
Will keep you guys updated
I am an EEA national, have been living in the UK for about 8 years. I applied for the PRC in July 2016 (almost 5 months ago) but still have not heard anything back.
Application submitted: 14 July
Payment Taken: 19 July
Application Confirmation Email: 15 August
I know this is still within 6 months, however looking at other posts here I can see that most of the EEA nationals have already received their cards, even those who applied in August/September :/
Is any other EEA national waiting for their PRC who applied in July or is/was waiting for 5+ months?
I changed my address in August but I did notify Home Office about it (back in August). I also called them to make sure that I submit my new address details correctly and the guy on the phone walked me through where and how to do it on their website. So I assume I did it right...
Good news indeed.WalSag wrote:Hello,
here is my timescale:
PR card received: 21/12/2016
I received all the paperwork, my ID, and the PR card (and covering letter) in one parcel. Really nice Xmas present.
A huge thanks to noajthan for all the advice.
I will have to wait until the autumn to apply for citizenship, hopefully the process will have become more streamlined or the fee will have gone down a bit. I have already passed 'Life in the UK' and will schedule the language test in the coming months.
Best wishes for 2017 to everybody.
Did you mean 4th of January 2017?fadijamshaid88 wrote:Dear all ,

Hi Noajthan,noajthan wrote:@stanmore06, my post was not to you - It was posted earlier and based on repeated cries for help but may have been missed by some members.stanmore06 wrote:Hi noajthan, not sure if you read my actual initial post because it's regarding Permanent Residence card processing time containing my TIMELINE. And you'll notice I have read the thread you recommending as I have made that request through my solicitor and MP already. I was hoping you will be able to tell me something from your experience why an application could take over six months and what else other than the steps already taken I could further take. Veronicasilva's suggestion looks pretty good and I'm posting thos letters Monday. Lastly, my CoA was sent to me from the post decision team in Sheffield, does that mean anything? Thanks for your candid and prompt reply.
Unsurprising really as this is such a jumbled thread with multiple sub-themes in it.
Without someone 'on the inside' noone would know the internal workings of HO. Nor why HO are unable to meet any specified timelines.
Letters to HO should be a first resort not last resort. But in case of particular member its likely to have been coincidence that she wrote to HO and then result came.
Apart from hunches and gut-feel, all there is to go on is the HO internal guidance - which is the subject of the link posted.
I despair about questions about internal routing of mail before it leaves HO premises; whether from Durham or Sheffield or Timbuktu what does it matter. There is no evidence anything can be made of it nor read into it.
