More discrimination against Non EU citizens.
For non-eu family members of British citizens.
Non-eu family members of EU citizens do not experience those problems, they simply apply online and get a decision in 2-3 weeks time
yea you're right, its a disgrace.

Was speaking with the EU resolution team today and they said if you have not received a certificate of application then your application has not even been looked at. Looks like it’s going to take many weeks to process the paper applications.
I believe we will receive biometrics appointment letter first. After this is done, COA will be sent??
Seems that is the process for other EU Settlement Scheme applications.

I'm really not sure, i thought this process was meant to be easy and straight forward.. :roll: i suppose all we can do is wait.. i thought receiving the COA first once documents have been received it would make more sense? but then again as you say, once the biometrics have been sent and the application is complete they then might issue the COA, who knows :?:

Hi guys,
I am non eu family of British citizens (spouse)
Applying for pre settlement

1. As I have RC, do I have to send it to home office or just sending passport is enough( I don’t want to send both as I need one of them’ specially the RC for proof of right to work in the U.K. )

2. Do they send the identity ASAP or when the case worker start process the application?

My application form arrived approximately 4 weeks as far as I can remember. I’m one of those who request soon as it was opened (March 31st) and took a while. I haven’t apply yet as I’m travelling tomorrow and need my passport, I will apply soom as I finish travelling.

For anyone who is interested, the 61 page application form was obtained through an FOI request along with instructions and eligibility checks the help line staff have to follow when a request for an application form is made.

The Home Office has withheld guidance on how the paper applications have to be processed once they have been returned citing public interest reasons.

We called on the 30th March, and had the callback on the same day, so one of the first to apply.
Our forms came through when the first ones were received and we completed them and posted it all back within 2-3 days.
We have heard absolutely zero too.

I know some members here have raised a complaint, and someone even mentioned writing to their MP. Was there any outcome from these?

Same here, no feedback at all.
My application was received on 1st of May. I called resolution centre couple of times but no feedback. They say they cannot advise how long it will take.

I have a feeling they are holding back on the applications and waiting to see what’s going to happen with Brexit so they can rule out non EU from the settlement scheme and return to the EEA documentation instead. Just a feeling, something not quite right with this process, no updates nothing.
