The reason most of us are here in this forum is to share experiences and get more detailed information about the application process in addition to the official HO publications and application forms. So I shared a simplified answers from my knowledge. As for the question 4 - it is really unlikely that a non EU spouse of someone who's only reason to move to UK is to be "job seeker" is going to be granted a residence card. And this is what mayakanon asked about.

1. she must stay and be "a qualified person" (which means: working, being self-employed, or studying or having enough money in savings-self sufficient) for the whole application process (which takes up to six months) because HO sometimes calls the EEA employer and makes other checks.
2. you can travel in and out of UK until your EEA family permit expires, afterwards, it will be complicated to re-enter UK.
3. what do you mean? if your wife works, you don't need a private health insurance, if she is a student, self-employed, self-sufficient - you need to buy a private health insurance. there are different prices, depending on company.
4. yes, it is a problem. if she is not working, not being self-employed, not studying, not being self-sufficient, your EEA residency will get refused.

I finally get the EEA Family permit without trouble. Now plan to move to UK with my Slovakian wife. Can someone help me to avoid problem in UK?
1. How long my spouse(EU) citizen MUST stay in UK after applying EEA2?
2. How long I must stay in UK after applying EEA2?
3. How much it cost to get Insurance ID?
4. Is it problem if my EU spouse yet not get job but we apply for EEA2?
5. List of necessary papers to be submitted for EEA2?
For your questions 1-4, I would recommend you google, research and make sure you understand very well what it means to be a "qualified person" as this will be the most important key for your application's success or failure.
For your question 5, I would suggest you read and study the EEA FM application with all its sections and sub-sections: https://www.gov.uk/government/publicati ... orm-eea-fm
I didn't want to provide actual answers to mayakanon's questions because it's hard to cover such an extended set of topics in a short post here. So, instead, I directed mayakanon to search online and do other research by him/herself.
For example, question 4 could be correctly answered as: Yes, in some cases it's OK if she is not working but only if she claims to be a job-seeker, which is also a qualified person. But you will need to provide proof that she is actively looking for a job (goes to interviews, sends out resumes, etc.). Also, self-employed persons do NOT need to have comprehensive health insurance.
I advise to read other, more detailed descriptions of what's required and what's necessary from other sources. The EEA FM application alone will answer a lot of your questions, not just question 5.[/quote]
