Re: EU Settlement Scheme & Toufik Lounes cases

Hi For the one you got CoA, do you know when exactly your case was allocated to the case worker? It looks like my case still hasn’t been allocated to the caseworker (CoA issued on 12nd of Aug, Lounes Case). Did it take you a month for it to be allocated to the caseworker? The case was allocated to ...

Re: EU Settlement Scheme & Toufik Lounes cases

An update following a call with the EU Resolution centre: 1. The online application (CoA: 19 July 2019 - The identity is verified, therefore no biometrics required) is now with a caseworker. 2. The paper application form sent without any ID or supporting documents (sent online application CoA so tha...

Amazing! They listened! Let see how they treat the application now. But I am really amazed! It ain't over until the fat lady sings. I will keep you posted. :wink: By the way, there is an additional complication in our case as my spouse (the non-EU applicant) holds ILR through settlement refugee rou...

Re: EU Settlement Scheme & Toufik Lounes cases

We have an update on the online application. Upon challenging the lawfulness of the requirement of a paper form application as discriminatory in breach of section 29 of Equality Act 2010, the senior caseworker has decided NOT to reject the online application as invalid. The online application has be...

Re: Heathrow Immigration Control - Mixed Passports

I always went to non-EU line with my non-EEA spouse, even though I held EU/British passport, our child BC too. However, I found that the non-EU line is faster than EU queues in certain airports (Luton, Liverpool) that receive mainly flights within EU. Nobody ever minded me or my child with a EU/Brit...

They are nowhere said to be compulsory. Gov.uk guidance everywhere says "you can use e-passport-Gates" to save time, avoid queues etc.

Re: EU Settlement Scheme & Toufik Lounes cases

I wonder the treatment and fate of pending TL applications past the Brexit day in case of no deal. I am wondering the same... I tend to believe that any application placed before October 31st will still follow the TL judgement even if it's decided after October 31st. What you said makes sense and I...

Thanks for this detailed information. Another application? I think I will die! Why do they have to make everything THAT DIFFICULT? The purportedly simple 30 minutes application with 1-4 days decision time to protect EU residents and their family rights in shambles by the institutionally dearly belo...

Re: Do dual EU-UK citizens have rights under EU law?

In my case HO said they cannot give a time like it can take up to 6 months. They just keep saying, Lounes case/ paper applications take significantly longer than online application. So far they’ve returned my passport quickly and I sent my biometrics with no hassle and no cost. So far so good. I’ll...

Re: EU Settlement Scheme & Toufik Lounes cases

We have been advised over the phone by the EU Resolution Centre that the "service standard" for the paper applications is 6 months. However, I doubt EU Settlement Scheme applications would on average take that long. I guess it would vary a lot on each individual circumstances, whether they need to ...
