Hi there, Polish citizenship. I thought my case wasn't straightforward, despite of that got my EEA PR amazingly quickly. I based my application on 5 year employment (including 2x maternity leave; 3 months registered as jobseeker; 3 months abroad when I got unemployed, but got re-employed straight after my return...)

Wow these are pretty fast timelines. I'm not sure why I received two email confirmations. I'm wondering whether requesting my documents back would speed things up?

Under Article 10 of Directive 2004/38 EC and Regulation 17 of the EEA Regulations (2006), the SSHD must issue the permanent residence card no later than six months after the application and the documents are received. My application has been submitted more than six months ago and a letter has been sent recorded to Home Office to remind them of this.
Update : Refusal received.

For those interested in Kuldip Singh, it seems caseworker guidance still does not reflect the ECJ Kuldip Sing Ruling. Therefore a rejection because EEA national left the UK before divorce proceedings were FINAL (absolute) but AFTER divorce proceedings began. Which means it's still a convenient way for a disgruntled ex to sabotage and blackmail their former partner - just by making sure they were out of the country or not working on the DAY the Decree Absolute is declared, resulting that the Non EEA spouse loses his/her retained rights of residence.
Hi vincevega,
Was this an application for permanent residence after retained rights of residence? or a retained rights of residence application?

I've received the PR today and here's an update on my timeline:

Online 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)
PR date: 25/02/2017
PR received: 04/03/2017

I am Romanian citizen with Blue Card, applied as worker. I sent my passport - did not use the European passport return service - and did not request my passport back either. The process took exactly 2 months. Good luck everyone!

Hi niceart,
Not sure if you've already received your PR, but just wanted to say that I also applied online and did not sign the form, but received my PR. Hope this helps

Below my timeline for PR Application as EEA National, who has been living in the UK since 2007 as Self-Sufficient and Employed:

Application transmitted online: 30/01/2017
Appointment for European Passport Return Service: 31/01/2017
PR received: 09/03/2017, dated 27/02/2017

I am positively surprised with the quick turnaround. All the docs I had provided were returned together with the Residence Card Document and a letter stating the Date I acquired Permanent residency.

Dear All,

Hope you guys are well and the people on the forum. :)

My timeline as a NON-EEA PR as follows : Indian National

Married 2011 April - Forever
Application Sent : 22/08/2016
Money Taken : 03/09/2016
Bio metrics Received : 12 Sept
COA Received : 22/09/2016
Passport Received : ???
PR Received :???

It's well over 6 months now since i have made an application (August 22nd -2016)

I have called home office on 28/02/2017 regarding the outcome of the application they asked me about my wife and my details . I gave them the information and by the way my wife is a Latvian citizen and DCPR Holder will be applying for BC citizen ship in October 2017.

Please also note : I received a caution for "common Assault" in 2013 was arrested for one night for about 8 hours . Do you think this would effect my confirmation of NON-EEA PR status in UK? :?

Much appreciate your guidance and advise.

Please Help....

Many thanks,
D
