The Home Office does not send letters to European Economic Area (EEA) nationals instructing them to make preparations to leave the UK. The refusal letters notify them that, on our assessment of the evidence provided, we are unable to confirm that they have acquired permanent residence.

The Home Office also provides applicants with information on options available to them, for example, clear guidance on providing the necessary evidence to make a successful application in the future, and of their right of appeal.
