Hi all!

My hubby (non EEA) applied 3 weeks ago and received his COA.
The application was made with me (EEA spouse) as a worker. I worked with an agency called Offtowork and provided 2 weeks payslips (20hours per week). The fact is, August is very quiet so I found another job, more permanent. My new job will give me my first payslip (monthly) the first week of september.

I was worried if the HO called my agency and discover that I didn't do any shift since 3 weeks? My new employer is a kind of bastard and doesn't want to sign anything but the payslips.

What should I do?

Call HO? Tell them that I will receive my payslip from my new job early September?

Please your advices are welcomed!!!

Ok, as I suggest, u may wait bcaz ho is gonna work on ur application may b after 1 to 2 months. One pay slip is ok to make ur application considered (as it's given in EEA 1 and 2 application form). Try to get a letter from ur current employer with name and contact detail of ur employer. As u receive ur pay slip forward both (letter n pay slip) to ho.

application sent 21/02/2014
interview 23/06/2014
rc issued 24/07/2014
rc received 08/08/2014

I was reporting to HO every week but as I received my RC, I didn't go this week. I suppose i don't have to go anymore. However, I received a text from HO today that I breached reporting conditions and I need to contact them. Have anyone been in this situation?
Do I still have to report?

Thanks

Just inform them that you received your RC,so they can delete your name from their list.

Hi Jahid,

#1 I provided evidence of CSI that covers both my wife and I.

#2 My wife is exercising treaty rights as self-sufficient based on me having a job in UK so I sent 3 joint bank statements, 3 payslips, contract from employer and letter from employer stating I still worked there as of time application was sent to UKVI. We didn't need to have any certain amount in bank account. We only had to prove that she has access to funds on a regular basis via a joint bank account.

Hope that help.

Hi Jadhid,

#1 CSI covers both my wife and I. Both of us are covered and this is the requirement. The insurance company is AXA. Not sure of the cost as my employer pays for it. Try this link to get a quote from an insurance company (http://www.activequote.com/health-insur ... rance.aspx). They all know about CSI and what policy you need to satisfy the UKVI/UKBA requirements.

#2 Yes, you can use your job and the salary earned to prove your wife has access to funds. To demonstrate this, I have my salary deposited into a joint bank account shared by my wife and I. It is very wise to include a cover letter and table of contents with your application. Explain how your wife is exercising treaty rights as self-sufficient and the evidence you're providing to demonstrate this.

Below is the cover letter and table of contents I used for my EEA2 Application. I organised everything in a black folder with clear plastic sleeves. It was returned to me exactly as I sent it to them. I think it helps to organise your documents and make it easy for the caseworker.

Please let me know if I can help answer more questions and good luck.

Hi again Jahid,

One more thing to clarify for you. The EEA2 Application can be a little confusing regarding the documents needed to prove your EEA National wife is economically Self-Sufficient. I've copied the most relevant portion that I feel explains exactly what you need.

This was taken from page 34 of the EEA2 Application:

"If section 9 (economically self-sufficient) has been completed: Evidence of comprehensive
sickness insurance for yourself and any family members included in your application. Evidence of funds to show your EEA national
family member is economically self-sufficient, e.g. a bank statement. If these funds come from a
family member, evidence of their employment or funds should be supplied
.

Hope this makes sense and is clear for what your need.

Hi cypriotExpat,

Thanks. I am American and my wife is Romanian.

I requested my passport and marriage certificate back the day I received my COA. They both arrived in the envelope I provided to them. My RC was sent using their envelope and arrived 3-4 days after my RC was printed.

I'm guessing yours should arrive any day since 2 months is pretty standard these days. You should call them. Doesn't hurt to be persistent.

Good luck.

Thanks for your reply. We havent requested our documents back but if we dont receive it in the following weeks we will maybe that will make them get to a decision faster.

Thanks again for the information
