Can you prove that you have been residing in he UK an exercising treaty rights for the last 5 years?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I can. I have been working here for over 10 years, however only the last 5 years I don't have to register with Home Office. I should have been registered with Workers Register Scheme until the end of April 2011. But I wasn't. That scheme haa been abolished since 2011 and now I don't have any restrictions to work in uk.
Many thanks

You will still be eligible to apply f9r permanent residence provided you have been here for the last 5 years and can evidence it.

The early WRS was abolished f9r Polish nationals in 2011, it is now 2016 and that is 5 years you have been in the UK.

I hope this answers your questions. If so, kindly rate the answer and provide feedback.
