Re: Surinder Singh Settled Status Paper Application:

@Elochka63 I had main documents translated and other supporting ones (like utility bills) I left as they are. You can't translate dozens of documents, but if you have the main ones officially translated they won't have a good reason to reject your application. Good luck!

Re: Surinder Singh Settled Status Paper Application:

Jumping the gun here a bit but does anyone know if after being granted Pre-Settled status, will we need to apply for Settled Status on a paper form again (when in the UK for 5 years) and provide all the same kind of evidence of having had our centre of life in another EU country with our British spo...

Re: Surinder Singh Settled Status Paper Application:

Thanks @Islandson - the UK is the least transparent immigration system I've ever encountered - and I was a Consul myself, for my own country. It is bordering on negligent - but not sure there is much to be done about it other than contact an MP (which I find to be a huge waste of public funds, MPs s...

I'm concerned that the COA have an 'expiry' after 6 months of being issued. If you follow the progress on this, you'll see they ask if the COA is ...

Re: Surinder Singh Settled Status Paper Application:

Big congrats, @Nol. This system has a total lack of transparency, it is bordering on evil... needing an MP to chase up a right you have is unreal. But yes, I know this is how it works, sadly. All is well that ends well!

@boo47 great news on your NI number, was well worth the wait :) It may actually help your application now that you have it. On my Suridner Singh forms (which are customized I guess) I had a question about my NI number with a comment that it might help speed up the process if I have one (I do, and in...

@Boo, as far as I know they are unrelated. Your Nino can get refused because they are not convinced that you have a real job or you forgot a document, it has nothing to do with your residency. One is the department of work and pensions (I think) and the other is Home Office, so no real connection......

Hi Boo, National Insurance Number (NINO) is a separate process - I imagine this will have delays now as you need to call them and schedule a meeting/interview. They check your documents and ask you questions before they attribute you a NINO, it's a process that can take a few months. This is the num...

Now I’m getting closer to complete the 5 years and the updates regarding the ...
