    Residential Waiver?

    Only just been informed I need a residential waiver having lived in an EU country for little over 6 months in the last 5 years. How long do these things take? Anything that can be done to speed it up? Is it worth assuming I’ll be deferred to next intake and not handing in notice to current job?
