Thank you twgal. I've applied online as a Romanian citizen and already have the blue card. My timeline has not changed, but I've copied and pasted here again:

Application submitted and paid - 05/01/2017
Email confirmation with case ID received - 06/01/2017
Documents posted - 06/01/2017 (Friday)
Documents received - 09/01/2017 (Monday)

I really hope your theory holds up!

I must have done something wrong - applied on the 22nd of Nov and still haven't received a confirmation e-mail from the HO. :/
Hi Naxxan,

Just wanted to report a similar timeline to yours.

My partner applied for EEA(PR) through the new online application form on 26th Novermber 2016. The payment was taken after a few days. We submited the documents within 10 working days, but have not recieved yet any confirmation letter or email from the HO.

My wife sent her documents to Durham for a PR application on 22/11/16 and I can see from the signature on the Royal Mail tracking website that they were apparently received on 23/11/16.

Since then she has heard nothing; no acknowledgement and no fee taken. We are starting to get a bit concerned. She needs her passport back soon as well, really.

How can we contact them to see what is happening and chase the return of the passport?

You cannot really chase for 6 months.
Acknowledgements not always sent out.
If payment had failed you would have heard.

Use request docs website to request docs. Google.

Thanks, SRE

We will give that a try. Obviously, we just don't want to do anything which might jeopardise the application in any way

Hi Lena81,
Thank you for sharing your timeline. Would you mind confirming if you applied using the paper or online form? Also, are you an A2 or A8 national? Thank you

Hi SRE - thanks for your updates. As I posted earlier, I applied in November and never received a confirmation e-mail. Can you tell me what the EEA confirmation e-mail actually says?

Also, is this the right address to ask for one and what did you give them to request an e-mail? - ukbacustomercomplaints@homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk

Out of interest how did you find this address, because after 10 calls to the EEA helpline they weren't able to provide me with this...

Thanks!

Hi naxxan,

in my husband confirmation email there is only Case id number and said thank you for your application and is being considered. Basically i just mention my name, when i send the app and doc, and said that i would like to have email confirmation / information if my application and documents has been received by them since i haven't receive any confirmation email about my application.

when i was apply for my EEA2 (RC) i use to sent email to HO to this address nwcsu@homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk but this is not valid anymore, and i sent to another email address that thanks God I always saved in my email database, but their automatic response answer sorry can't answer your question and give me this address email ukbacustomercomplaints@homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk

If you want to ask COA try this nweurocoarequests@homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk maybe it going to send the email to the right place if not try the complaint email.

Hope this help....
