Re: Permanent Residence Card - Processing Time 2017

just a quick question Is the Non-EEA PR Card a biometric vignette on your passport or a proper biometric card? What about the EEA PR document? Is the DCPR a piece of paper? I've read that DX deliveries are usually Biometric cards. Is this true? Could it be a rejection? And Royal Mail deliveries are ...

Re: Permanent Residence Card - Processing Time 2017

Hi, I came home from work to find a DX card in the letterbox. I've arranged for redelivery on Mon at my workplace. Is DX reliable? I wish I wasn't left hanging over the weekend. I've also been using my PRN number to check my online status and it still says AWAITING DECISION (21 April). I tried using...

Congrats CMOS,

Thanks

Hi there, According to the document published yesterday, a voluntary scheme will be set up in due course where EEA citizens can start the application process for settled status before March 27th, 2019 (see below). 38.

Hi there, According to the 15-page document published yesterday, May says that Irish citizens residing in the UK will not need to apply for settled status to protect their entitlements (see below) in keeping with the terms of the CTA. What about Irish nationals with non-CTA non-EEA spouses? I am ass...

Long Term Sick Leave: Qualified Status?

Hi there, Spouse and I applied for EEA and non-EEA PR (Qualifying period Jan 2012-Dec 2016). Spouse has been on paid sick leave since Feb 2017 (outside the qualifying period). Even though this is outside the qualifying period, should we inform HO of the sick leave? Does it affect the PR decision? If...

Re: If non-EEA PR app exceeds 6mths, is COA extended?

Okay, I used the board's search engine after posting the above and learnt that you can request a replacement COA by emailing nweurocoarequests@homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk Has anyone done this? How long does it take to get a replacement COA and how long before the expiry date of the original COA should you...

If non-EEA PR app exceeds 6mths, is COA extended?

Hi there, It seems that non-EEA PR applications from Oct/Nov 2016 are now taking longer than 6 months. I expect that this apparent 2-4 week lag will continue to grow with the increasing number of applications the HO is receiving. For those of you whose 5-year residence permits have expired or will h...

Re: Irish person settled in UK - Need to apply for ILR?

Hi Obie, I have a question based on what you've written below. The question is whether you have lived here for 5 year. For other EEA nationals, they need to establish lawful residence in accordance with the EEA regulation for 5 years, and this means exercising treaty rights. IRISH CITIZEN only need ...

You were indeed lucky to have been able to discuss the nature of the EEA(PR) form.

Any issues resolved? How are you getting on?

Re: PR for EEA & non-EEA Spouse: One Form?

CMOS,

Thanks for drawing my attention to those instructions in Section 5.

Sometimes it is not obvious from the full name in the passport (1.3) what the family name / surname is, hence this needs to be specified in 1.4. I hope this clarifies the need for 1.4.

Hi there, I know an EEA national applying for PR can include the Non-EEA spouse in their EEA(PR) application form. We are currently in this situation. However, there are certain extra sections to be filled in for the non-EEA spouse where the pronoun used is "I" and can be misleading since "I" refers...
