If you would like to apply for EEA Permanent Residence in the UK, you may wish to know how long the process will take. According to the Home Office website, the application process should not take longer than six months, but reports on the accuracy of this can vary.
The Brexit process has 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.

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.
