Re: Refused Permanent Residence card, EEA national student,

Hi alexxy, It's been really interesting reading about your case and congrats on obtaining your permanent residency card! I'm also a Romanian national who has been in the UK for 5 and a half years. I was wondering whether you can clarify a bit about the arguements you have included in your applicati...

PR granted after 2nd application, but appeal still pending

Hi everyone ! I'm back on this forum this time with another issue ! So, after having been refused PR, I've appealed to the First Tier Immigration Tribunal and finally got an oral hearing scheduled for 5th of May 2017. Because of the incredibly long wait for a hearing date I had also, in the meantime...

I suggest you stop panicking, read the application requirements carefully, re-apply for permanent residence or appeal the refusal decision if you need to. If you don't understand the whole application process and everything looks too complicated, pay a solicitor or a company to help you make a succe...

Re: EEA4 Refused For inexplicably

Yellow registration certificate is in fact your wife's work permit ! Any work that has been done prior to that is considered illegal because only in 2013 did she acquire the working permit. I do not believe that UKVI has made a mistake in your case. Can someone correct me if I am wrong?

Home Office refused to grant me PR because of lack of CSI (which I didn't need as I was exempt from having it). I phoned the Tribunal some time ago to inquire about the timelin...

Re: EU National Applying for UK Permanent Residence

My advice on this: For any period of time in the last 5 years you need to state under what basis you apply, say from 2011-2012 student, 2012- 2013 self-sufficient if that was the case etc Now, you are only exempt from providing evidence of CSI if you obtained a registration certificate issued to you...

Re: No EHIC/insurance

I will tell you why this CSI requirement was introduced. They wanted to make it harder for any EEA immigrants (students or self-sufficient persons) to get a qualifying period, also they wanted them to spend huge amounts of money monthly on this private insurance thing so that they 'don't become a bu...

If you want to apply for Permanent Residence Card using your yellow card, it really doesn't matter when or whether it expires. You only use the date you acquired it !

Hi Maricruz,

Re: Refused Permanent Residence card, EEA national student,

There is no UKBA, it was abolished in 2013. Appeals can take months (and months) or a year or so. Yes, I meant UKBA - Home Office / UK Visas and Immigration, whatever ... it's all the same thing. I see that now, but I didn't know at the time of the appeal that it would take so long, plus I didn't t...
