Re: General discussion on CSI and Settled Status. Big issues for people on the EEA-Applications Routes

Do you need CSI for the year prior submitting the application for naturalisation too? No, because having ILR / Settled under the EU Scheme or a DCPR means you are free from immigration control. You have to be able to show proof of CSI for your qualifying period though (if you have gaps in employmen...

Re: General Discussion During Naturalisation Application Process

You know I always ask myself what is the difference between corporate and government organisation (not only management structure). In the firm where I work we have a nominated person, who lives closer to the office and asked the person to go to the office and just send the post/letters (because of ...

Re: EU & Brexit Deal

There is registration in pretty much all other EU member states in one form or another. In some states the applicant will be issued a local ID card, in others will simply have to notify the local council / municipal administration in order to be issued a 'citizen number', or the equivalent of our NI...

Re: Purple Certificate Croatian National

Hello there, What you benefit from is freedom of movement within the EU but this is different from immigration controls, at least in the eye of the Home Office because you (like all other EU nationals residing in another member state) have to meet certain criteria, i.e. exercise Treaty Rights. There...

Re: Failed citizenship application due to PR

My issue is with the way Home Office handled my PR application. Hi Alex, Can you confirm you have used the right EEA application form and have sent it to the correct address? The application forms for RC(QP) and DCPR are different and the departments dealing with them are different. And the support...

Re: PR certificate for EU citizen - job seeker

Hi Ilaria, I'm not an immigratio lawyer or expert but in my view the UK regulations - interpretations of EU law rather - are... vague. The whole CSI thing is basically... not very legal but the EC has more important thing to deal with, especially knowing we're leaving anyway. I don't think they will...

Re: PR certificate for EU citizen - job seeker

CSI Requirement during times you do not work especially if you are not a registered Jobseeker... A settled EU national actively seeking employment and being able to prove that should be okay for periods between jobs up to three months. I haven't heard of people being rejected for that. I would encl...

Re: Applying naturalisation by post

Apart from original documents getting lost ? Yes, that is a fair point, Vinny. You're absolutely right. I hear the Home Office asks more and more applicants to send some original documents later in the process, which documents will have to be returned via post anyway. It's a matter of calculating t...

Re: Applying naturalisation by post

Hi hsyasin, I've done all my immigration / Naturalisation applications via post, never used solicitors or NCS and I haven't had any problems. I would have never used my Council's NCS service anyway, they are extremely rude and VERY expensive. As other members have rightly said, only downside is if y...

Re: Croatian national (EU) wanting to stay with her UK partn

Hi there, First, take a deep breath and don't panic. It's not that hard for Croats, yet. If I were you, I would have registered as self-employed (no restrictions there for Croatian nationals), applied for a National Insturance number and started working... anything really. You can do certain jobs as...

The wife though will have to prove she had exercised Treaty Right for 5 years. In case she does...

Re: EEA (PR) for a family - single app or multiple

Hi Kamoe, Many thanks for your reply. Absolutely, it's about the practical implementation of the thing as the EEA (PR) application form itself is advisory, not compulsory. They all have solid evidence so it won't really matter, I guess... and they should perhaps just send three individual applicatio...

EEA (PR) for a family - single app or multiple

Dear members, My query is this: Friends of mine, family of 3 (husband and wife, and a 19-year-old son), all EEA nationals would like to apply for DCPRs. They have been here for 12 years. Parents are self-employed, the son finished school last year, having a gap year now before applying to University...

Re: Second Original Documents Request - Residency

If you are an EEA national, passport won't be enough sadly. They will need evidence as European travel is not registered in your passport or on any of their systems. I believe they would want to see your tax for the financial year ending April 2016 paid, plus a letter from HMRC confirming that. If y...

Re: EU Freedom of Movement statistics

The maximum length of the so called Transitional Controls period has been 7 years, imposed by the UK and just a few other countries on Bulgaria and Romania between 2007 and 2014. In EU8's case (the wave of countries joining the EU in 2004), most of the 'old' EU countries imposed a 2-year transitiona...
