I am EU citizen living in UK for 8 years. I have decided to apply for permanent residence. I have read the application but I have few question that I would like you to help me with:
1. Date you first entered the UK- I came to UK for a first time to visit my boyfrient in July 2007 and stayed for 4 monts but then came back to Poland. Then i came to visit him again in Dec 2007 just for few days. I came back to Uk in Feb 2008 and lived here since then. What actual date shall I enter?
2. Absense from UK- do I need to list all my holidays taken since the day I came to UK of last 6 years will be enough
3.I have been issued with WRS card/ cartificate is this treated as document called Registration Certificate for application purposes?
4. Section about my activities in UK- do i need to list all my activities since the day I came to UK of last 6 years will be suffient. For 2 first years I was living with my boyfriend and doing some courses but since Feb 2010 i have been always working so is this ok if I list my activities since this date?
5. is this ok if I submit documments such as payslips, P60, bank statements, ulitilty bills, WRS card (issied in 2010) since 2010? Do I need to submit all the payslips? i think I have few missing (2-3 in a year), I have all P60 and bank statements to prove that my salary was transfered to my acccount.
6. I was going to submit all documents since 2010 but as according to the rules I need to prove that i lived in UK contantly for 5 years, shall I still submit 6 years period or start from Jan 2011 to March 2016?
I would appreciate your help
HelloThank you for your enquiry You should enter the date you first arrived into the UK but you should also explain your travel history in a covering letter or where the application provides the space for additional information. You would need to put in all your absences from the UK in the last 5 years including holidays. The WRS is not the same as a registration certificate. You are required to list all your activities since arriving into the UK. You should submit bills, WRS, P60s payslips, bank statements etc You should submit at least 2 supporting documents per year for the last 5 years. If you have 6 years worth then there is no harm in submitting supporting documents from then. **********************************************************************This is a simple question and answer platform.

Hello,Many thanks for your response, your comments are very helpful.
I have just remembered that I briefly worked 3 weeks in Mid Jan- early Feb 2010, I was waiting for my employer to give me a letter confirming my employment to send to HO to apply for WRS card but I left before they issued it so I never applied for WRS card for this job. I started a second job from 15th of February 2010 and then applied and received WRS card/certificate for this second job and worked for the same employer until Sept 2011 when WRS was abolished. Do you think that this would be an issue that I do not have a WRS card for this first job.Many thanks for your answer
The Home Office will normally consider the relevant period to start from when you had the WRS card.
