EEA Permanent Residence Processing Time

The EEA Permanent Residence processing time per application takes six months maximum, according to the UKVI website. But reports on the accuracy of this can vary as Permanent Residence applications have increased since Brexit.

Since Brexit was announced there has been an increased demand for the service, which is why the Home Office is currently using an online application form. Using the European Passport Return Service is another trial which is hoped will speed up the application process.

Our team of expert immigration lawyers can help you complete your application for EEA Permanent Residence quickly and efficiently. They will work with you to make sure that each part of your application is completed properly, they will perform a document check and they will be able to do this well in a short space of time. This will mean that your EEA Permanent Residence processing time will be significantly shortened and you will receive a result as quickly as possible. Contact us online or call free on 0333 363 8577 to speak with an immigration lawyer about your application for EEA PR now.

Frequently Asked Questions

Reports vary, with some people receiving their documents in as few as seven weeks while others have to wait as long as eight months.

In order to speed up your application, it is advised that you submit original documents wherever possible and ensure the form is filled in correctly.

Providing too much information is better than providing too little, so be thorough in your application to ensure everything is as clear as possible.

If you are eligible to use the online application, this can help to speed up the application process by cutting down on transit times. It is also less likely that you will fill in the form incorrectly because the online form will be customised according to your circumstances. You will not be able to proceed with your application if you have not filled in the sections correctly – this means there is less of a chance of making a mistake.

If you are filling in the paper form, it is important to check everything is filled in correctly. If English is not your first language, you may want to have a native English speaker check the application for any mistakes.

If there are any mistakes made on your application, your form will be returned to you and marked as invalid and your application fee will be refunded minus a Home Office admin charge.

If you submit your application for Permanent Residence using the paper form, you may be required to submit your passport with your application. This could mean you may be without your passport and primary travel document for up to six months.

If you are planning to travel during this time, it is best to use the online form for PR which allows you to use the European Passport Return Service. This service allows applicants to take their passport or identifying documents to their local authority to be checked and returned to you on the same day.

We understand that the application process for EEA Permanent Residence can be time-consuming and potentially confusing. Our expert immigration lawyers can assist you with your application to ensure that you do not make any costly or delaying mistakes.

Our lawyers can:

  • Meet with/contact you within a day of you contacting us
  • Discuss your next steps and requirements
  • Assess your eligibility for an EEA PR application
  • Perform a full document check to ensure that you have sufficient evidence for your application
  • Prepare a Letter of Representation which references your supporting documents, relevant UK immigration laws, regulations and cases in support of your application
  • Liaise with the Home Office during your application process
  • Complete each part of your application form to the highest standard.
