But since I have the PR document and will not be filling in sections 2.4-2.6, shouldn't I enter the PR (EEA3 card) issue date? It was issued in 3.5 years ago so more than enough to satisfy the 1 year 'free of immigration time restrictions' requirement. You can - I guess it doesn't really matter. Te...

On the Booklet they make a few references to indefinite leave to remain when they talk about EEA citizens and family members and I am confused because I thought EEA citizens are given 'permanent residence' as opposed to indefinite leave to remain. That is correct. Under EU routes you get PR, under ...

In most cases this information is not required (see above). This is...

Re: Grandparents details!!!

Thanks Gyfrinachgar, the guy did ask me on what basis i got my British citizenship, which i told him it was neither based on parents or grandparents, he still insisted that i include a letter as this was requested by the IPS :shock: The official IPS booklet makes clear that the grandparents are onl...

Re: BC application for EEA3 holders

I am an EEA national and have had an EEA3 card since November 2009. I want to apply for BC now - do I need to fill in sections 2.4 and 2.5 of the application form? Simplest way would be to write: "please refer to enclosed PR document". With that neat little blue document you saved yourself a lot of...

Any idea why? Sure, after a successful application it is not needed anymore, but it is still a valid certificate the applicant paid money for. I think the practise of withholding it is questionable at best.

Re: Britiish Citizenship referees

Please can everyone share their experience of who they use as professional referee and how did it go? Plenty of topics on that .

I would advice the exact opposite - especially if you don't like history. The tests are valid for life and are due to become much more complex then they are at the moment (the test is indeed very easy to pass). Read this BBC report on some of the proposed changes. While these changes have not been ...

No worries. Yes, contacting HO is usually an uphill struggle.
