Hi there, I am an EEA national (The Netherlands) and have lived in the UK for nearly 16 years. Shortly after I moved here I received a caution, and I am wondering if I am legally obliged to disclose this on the permanent residence application form, as it was such a long time ago. If I do, could it affect the outcome? Many thanks for your help!
