On the COA it clearly states "We expect to decide applications for a RC, PR or DRC within six months from the date of application."
I believe HO are going through a backlog since applications from August and September are now starting to come through.

Hi,

To those non-EEA Spouses, have you traveled outside of the UK during the time that the PR was being processed? Did you have any trouble getting back into the UK? I just sent my application in last week, and am a bit worried about being 'stuck' here all summer.

Hi Arusud,

congratulations!
out of curiosity what is your nationality? are you part of the EEA (A8) ? your timeline is impressively quick and I'm wondering if it's because there's a dedicated A8 team.

Good luck everyone!

I can't travel because I don't have any travel ID other than my passport which is sent together with PR application
I could request it back but i didn't want to risk spoiling the process though I know I'm entitled to ask my documents back

Applied as an EEA national qualified by working, with non EEA spouse.

It arrived in exactly 6 months.

Here is my timeline:

Application sent: 23/09/2016
Home Office received on 26/09/2016
Payment taken on 28/09/2016
Email Confirmation: 10/10/2016
Biometric Letter Received: 12/10/2016
Biometric Sent on: 13/10/2016
COA (received on 22/10) 19/10/2016
Passport Requested Back 07/03/2017
PR received on 23/03/2017

Since my spouse didn’t register with the WRS, we only sent documents covering the 5 years starting from June 2011 to 2016, but for our surprise, Home office started counting the 5 years from 2009, regardless of the WRS document.

My spouse biometric card didn’t arrive yet as it will be sent separately and should arrive anytime soon.

Hi, did you request your EEA passport via online or you sent them a letter?

I requested the documents back online, but it never arrived by itself. It arrived with the rest of the documents and the PR itself.

(My EEA husband'a card arrived and mine non EEA card will arrive in 10 working days). It took 5 months 20 days from the date of payment taken for our joint EEA/non-EEA application
I was happy to see that they state in the letter that my permanent residence status started from the date I entered the UK+5 years (not from the expiration date of 5-years residence documentation). So I assume that I can apply for citizenship in 6 months (12 months since permanent residence status started)

Good move mate, happy that they had at least confirmed to you when to apply for your Citizenship if you wish to.
