Pre-settled to settled status, when to apply?

Hi, I have been in the UK since September 2010. I initially came as a student in a Tier4 visa and in March 2016 I switched to a Tier2 visa. While on Tier2, I applied for a RC as an extended family member of EEA citizen (unmarried partner), which was granted in August 2017 (date on the card). Then I ...

Re: Any first-hand experience of returning to the UK on a EEA RC, without your EU sponsor during covid / lockdown?

I thought I'd report back: I just came back into the UK, and I am happy to report I had no issues whatsoever. Not when issuing boarding pass, not when emigrating (in France and Switzerland, for example, you have to pass an emigration official before having access to the gate), not when boarding, no...

Pre-settled status and NHS entitlement

I have been in the UK for almost 9 years on different types of visas (Tier 4, Tier 2 and EEA RC). I currently have a resident card as an extended family member of an EEA citizen (issued July 2017) and got pre-settled status on Feb 2019. I have recently moved to a new house and decided to register to...

Re: Valid Tier 2, travel during EEA-FM application?

Do you think I should inform them, or submit another request to return my BRP? Maybe I should have waited longer to request my docs too. I just did my biometrics last week and don't have a COA yet, but I needed my docs back in case I need to travel on short notice. I applied under the same circumst...

My Tier 2 BPR was valid beyond 6 months so they returned without any problem. At the moment my Tier 2 is still valid and I also have my EEA RC. Wow, amazing!

Will they send the BRP back? I was under the impression that they would retain the BRP as it would no longer be valid after successful application for a residence card.

Re: Should I have sent my Tier 2 BRP

Hi there,

Yes, you have done the right thing. You need to show you are legally in the UK, so that was the way to go. When I requested my documents back I specified that I wanted my passport and my BPR so they sent both back.

I hope this helps,
