Just thought I update this post to reflect the fact that the application has been increased to 137.

Utter ridiculous.

People need to obtain Biometric, an equivalence which does not appear to apply to British Citizens.

It looks like the UK is pushing EU law to its limit, or perhaps beyond it.

This was indeed necessary for my sanity sake.

UKVI has finally accepted in their policy guidance that a person cannot be refused for refusing to fill in the appropriate form.

see the end of page 7 and start of page 8.

I have always thought that those forms were not EU law compliant, just a shame that UKVI realised on the 07-04-2014.

I will however not personally advise people to not use them, as a europhile caseworker may be tempted to refuse it, and make life heard for them.

Nice one Obie.
I find the form difficult to fill in in a certain circumstance. I think Surinder Singh is for worker, self-employed or student and does not cover self-sufficient, try filling in the form as self-sufficient and coming back to UK releying on O.B. Cant fill in the SS section because it dont really apply. it just dont fit anywhere in the form. 137 pages wasted.

I find myself in a similar position with the new PR Form. It was my intention to simply apply by letter but I read somewhere on this board that old versions of the EEA4 are acceptable as long as they are accompanied by the new fee.

I recall a version of the EEA 4 that had no specific mention of SS details but simply asked if you had entered on a Family Visit Visa, similar to the EEA2 of 5 or 6 years ago.

I wonder if any member reading this has a link to where an older version of the EEA4 might be downloaded from.

I would be grateful for any guidance.

Thanks

A great source for old forms is the UK Government Web Archive. You can access older versions of the websites and retrieve old forms by navigating through it:

http://webarchive.nationalarchives.gov. ... ce.gov.uk/

(All archived versions of the old UKBA website)

http://webarchive.nationalarchives.gov. ... ww.gov.uk/

(All archived version of the current gov.uk website)

You can find forms such as this, from 2012:

Thanks Hubba.
That information was invaluable. A great deal to trawl through but I almost got an instantaneous hit. I'll get there.

Many many thanks

I have, just for comparison, looked up the equivalent form for making such an application in the Netherlands; it is only 11 pages, which includes some pages that just explain the rules and the procedure, and some that are optional depending on circumstances.

In the Netherlands you can not apply by post, only in person. However, this means that you get the Certificate of Application immediately (it is a sticker in your passport) and you will never be without passport as well. Of course, you need to bring and show your valid passport when lodging the application. The office where you do that will make a copy of the passport, apply the CoA sticker and give you your passport back.

And "immediately" means here what most people think it means; not the HO interpretation "within two months or so"!

I'm very glad that I don't need to worry about UK applications until 2021 when my wife's PRC is due for renewal

When sending the forms as a couple do you put both forms in one envelop with the supporting evidence ?

I did not include Benefits Section with my application, as I was exercising Treaty Rights as a worker and claimed benefits, but I was entitled to do so. I did not mention them in my Personal Statement either. I'm an A8 national. My application was successful It took 5weeks to process.

Hi all I am posting here regarding some information if anyone here can help me It would be great.
Basically I am getting married next month and I am in UK from last 8 years I wanted to know that my wife she was born in UK but held Irish passport as well because her parents were from Ireland. I have been looking on UKba website and if I ago for British rule I have to pay a lot more money and nhs surcharge as well which I don't want to pay as I am paying taxes from last 8 years to cut long story short which form I have to fill in to send home office to apply as a spouse of an EEA national some has told me that it could be EEA2 .
So if anyone here knows which form I have to fill in kindly please reply me ASAP

Am not sure if this is a consolation but the form has been reduced to 91 pages, 07/15 version.

Yes I still find the 91 pages EEA(FM) and the 76 pages EEA(EFm) still unacceptable , and contained numerous unlawful requirements.

It is like going from unlawful to slightly less unlawful, it is still unlawful in any event.

Can I write to UKVI (as they are now known) requesting an application form as I do not know how to use the computer :)?
