We are also waiting to hear outcome of our pre-settled status application (paper form for Surinder Singh applicants). We got our COA on 7 November 2019. Since then we have heard nothing from the Home Office. I have just sent in a question asking about the status of our application. Sounds like it is a slow process! Good luck everyone.

Finally have some updates for the applications. I can see my parents' settled status online now. Seems their detail has been booked into the system and approved just today. Obviously the caseworkers update the system before sending the post. Haven't received any email or call from them in the meantime.

It is a big relief. Hopefully, you guys with similar timeline will have a result fairly soon.

It's not the literal status of the application but the immigration status really. From this URL https://www.gov.uk/view-prove-immigration-status. I think they are approved today because I have been checking this on a daily basis in the last month, yesterday it was showing as 'no details match'.

Approval letter received by post on the Brexit day. The biometric cards will be ready in a week. A long project is finally coming to its end. Happy days.

Hope everyone here best of luck!

Hi Khan Said,

Yes that's correct, once you are in the UK you need to call the Home Office and ask for a Surinder Singh Paper application form. You won't be able to apply from within Ireland, you will need to move to the UK, and then gather evidence of you living in the UK, a plane boarding pass will be enough proof for your date of entry, and other than that, rental agreements, bank statements, bills etc will be needed for proof of residency. You would be applying for Pre-Settled status which would give you a 5 year biometric residence card.
You will also need proof of the British Citizen, exercising treaty rights in Ireland; your residency proofs such as rental agreements, bank statements, bills etc, and proof of employment there in the period of residency, and also proof of integration in Ireland.

Hope this helps you,

Irfan

Hi A irfan

Thanks for posting your inquiry. I planning to apply for my family through Surinder singh route as well from here in Ireland. I have been looking at these posts on Immigrationboard and what I have got is that:
There is no online application and I have to call UKHO and ask for an application which they would post it to the home address after checking the eligibility of the applicant.
I shall be grateful if you could share process please. And also whether these applications are for 6 monthe or for 5 years RC once approved?

Regards
Hi Airfan

Thanks very much for the replay. I thought you applied for Ireland, my mistake as u lived in Ireland from 2015- 2017. Ok so applied from within UK, did you get a visa to get to uk or the 5 years Irish RC was enough to move to UK and live there since 2017?
Just for information though, EU citizens can make complaints to SOLVIT online stating the difficulties an EU citizen and their families facing. SOLVIT have a direct contact with each EU country's HO.

Regards
Yes the Irish RC was enough to move to the UK and live here since 2017, provided spouse stayed in employment within 3 months of returning to the UK, which she did. The EEA family permit should generally have been applied for though to prove right of work etc, but it is not a requirement.
Hi Airfan

Thanks very much for the replay much appreciated. Also many Congratulations on your pre settled. Anything new post Brixit or changes shared would appreciated as well.
Regards

Did you apply from inside the UK or outside?
If you applied inside the UK then what supporting documents did you send with your application OR you sent supporting documents by scanning resources?

Apply to the EU Settlement Scheme (settled and pre-settled status)

If your family member is a British citizen (‘Surinder Singh’ applications)
You may be eligible if you lived outside the UK in an EU or EEA country (or Switzerland) with your family member.

You must have lived with them in the EU or an EEA country that is not the UK (or Switzerland) before 1 February 2020, and be:

married to or in a civil partnership with them
under 21 years old, and are their child or grandchild
21 years or older, and are their dependent child or grandchild
their dependent parent or grandparent
The country that you lived in together must have been your main residence. Your British family member must also have been working, studying or self-sufficient in the country while there.

You cannot use the online service to apply if this is how you qualify for the scheme.

You need to call the EU Settlement Resolution Centre to find out how to apply. You’ll be asked a few questions over the phone before you’re sent the application form.

2nd thanks for reply actually I applied online proubly I filled up wrong form online then they contacted with us to tell us that was wrong form then they got our information again and now they gonna send us application form again.Now my question is I gave my biomatric finger print and scanned my original documents from their department(i paid fee for that which was around £90) and already send them.willy they use same documents again with paper application again if I give them reference number.
OR I will have to send my original documents with application form (e.g passport etc.)
I'm also worry cuz maybe the hold the passport until decision of the application and I need to travel and they maybe take more then 3 months. Thanks
