  • EEA question

    Hi I am Italian and I am doing the application for the Uk citizenship. I am not sure about a question. I have only settled status and I am not sure if they are specifically asking for permanent residence card that I don’t have. Thank you in advance

    Morning,

    We have covered that here: Filling in the AN form with PR or or ILR (including Settled Status) - UKCEN Citizenship and Residence for European Nationals and their families

    ...where we have:

    The form asks whether you are an EEA national or a family member who has a PR document.

    This includes ILR or Settled Status. IF YOU HAVE SETTLED STATUS, YOU STILL CHOOSE THIS OPTION.

    [...]

    Filling in the AN form

    If you say Yes to the question regarding whether you are an EEA national or a family member of an EEA national, you will be asked whether you will apply with PR or ILR.

    You must answer YES to this question even if you have settled status.

    EEA National

      If you select ILR, which includes settled status, you will be asked for the date when ILR was granted. This would be the date on your ILR stamp or date when you got confirmation that settled status was granted.

      You can apply for citizenship with settled status 12 months after you first got permanent residence status. You do not need a permanent residence document. If you didn't have a document certifying PR status, you need to have had settled status for at least 12 months unless married to a British citizen.

        We have put together the following resources which should be your starting point.Also refer to this post: Issues, mistakes, errors and ommisions

        ....and, before going further, you should also be aware of the potential impact on family members you may wish to sponsor in the future.

        Please note that, if applying with settled status, it may also be necessary to show you were exercising treaty rights for the previous 3 or 5 years, as noted here:

              Morning,

              I've moved your new post to your previous thread to keep it all together.

              If you look here: Evidence of residence

              ...you'll see:
              • Documentary evidence that indicates presence in the UK during the relevant 3 or 5 years. This can be in the form of letters from employers, educational establishments or other Government Departments. A sample of these documents, at least one from each of the 3 or 5 years, should be submitted.
              • Continued presence in the country can be shown by enclosing lists of attended appointments from GPs, dentist, physiotherapist, dental hygienist and hospital consultant (i.e. hospital appointments).
              • Your children's school attendance records and letters confirming you drop them off and pick them up.
              • Bank and credit card statements showing physical transactions made in the UK.
              • A P60 from an employer would be equivalent to a letter from an employer and Government Department letters could include letters you have received from the DWP, HMRC, DVLA, or any other Government Department.
              Although the Home Office prefers official documents from government departments, if you are unable to provide them, or the other items on the list above, you can send anything that has your name, address and a date on it.

              You may want to explain in your cover letter and/or additional information section of the form, why you are unable to provide their preferred evidence.
              Please note that bank statements are not the preferred evidence for citizenship, as the document checklist will say, so, if you need to use them, you will also need to wrtie a note in your cover letter to say you are providing them in the absence of their preferred forms of evidence, as noted above.

              I am the Site Manager and Webmaster, please refer to our Admin Team, Roles and Responsibilities. If you think we have helped in any way, please support us so we can keep helping others secure their status, it is now more important than ever as the deadline approaches.

                Hi, I know there is a bit of confusion about this topic. I tried to understand from previous comments but I am even more confused now.
                I hope I will have a little help from you. (I really want to thank you for this amazing platform and all the support you are giving)

                I am applying for UK citizenship and I am blocked at the CSI question.

                I am italian and I have EHIC card (tessera sanitaria)
                I arrived in uk in September 2013
                First job April 2014 and since this date I have been continually working in UK for almost 7 years so I guess I am ok for the qualifying years (5+1).
                My question is: are these initial 7 months a problem? shall I send a scan of my EHIC card as proof? and also is it better to tick or shall I leave blank the section on the online application regarding CSI?
                Thank you in advance

                  Morning,

                  I've moved your post to your existing thread to keep it all together.

                  Please note that you only need to provide evidence of lawful residence for the last 5 years, and this is clearly indicated on the checklist shown below:

                  So you only need to provide evidence for those years, nothing from 2013-2014.

                        Morning,

                        No, you cannot leave it unticked, everyone has to tick it to be able to proceed, it's a bit like when you book something online and have to tick the box agreeing to the terms and conditions. Even if it's not relevant, you are simply ticking it to say that, IF it was relevant, you would provide the required evidence.
