travel document

Post by Aladin0987 » Sun Oct 07, 2012 4:55 pm

So is it possible to obtain a HOME OFFICE TRAVEL DOCUMENT with an EEA family member PERMANENT RESIDENCE CARD? cause I have already applied for it with my LIMITED EEA RESIDENCE CARD but they refused my application and I lost £240.
I DO NOT HAVE MY OWN COUNTRIES NATIONAL PASSPORT AND I CAN NOT GET IT EVER DUE TO A POLITICAL ISSUES :lol:
Thanks

Thanks mate, anyway I never trust HO, so I can't rely on what she said, I'll wait and see. My lawyer said I should wait for HO to ask me to send documents then I should send, she says normally after 2 weeks you will get a letter from court about the out come from court.
I'm not sure to wait or just send my document to HO, I was given the address to send to by the HO REP.
