Quick note on something I spotted the other day while looking through tribunal statistics: waiting times and success rate for EEA appeals. According to the latest quarterly tribunal statistics, for April to June 2016, the latest EEA appeal waiting time (i.e. if an application is refused and an appeal is lodged) was on average 18 weeks. This compared well to other types of appeals, the waiting times for some of which were over 52 weeks. See table T.3

The success rate for EEA appeals was 44%. See table FIA.3.

I still cannot find anything on current waiting times for EEA applications, though.
