How many times should upload

Post by potolot2 » Mon Jun 17, 2019 10:09 pm

Hi all
At the end of online EEA visa applications, there's an option to upload supporting documents.
I am going to provide my documents,e:g my passport, payslips, supporting letter to support my brother & sister's EEA applications.

a) Should my supporting documents need to be uploaded in both of their applications separately
or it's enough if the documents are uploaded either with brother or sister's applications as I mentioned in the supporting letter that I'm sponsoring both my brother and sister.

b) should I upload my supporting letter as well or submit the original letter at VFS although all the documents original/photocopies will also be scanned @ VFS centre.

Pls, .give me your kind suggestions.

Are you an EEA national or Family member of an EU national ?

You must upload supporting documents separately

Are you sponsoring your mother / brother / sister ?

Hi askmeplz82
yes, I'm an EU national and I'm applying for my father&mother.
so, I need to upload my supporting documents in both of their applications separately as I've also mentioned in a cover letter that I'm sponsoring both of them.

I tried to upload the documents but it was very slow and received errors multiple times so I just skipped the uploading process and paid a minimal amount for documents scanning at visa center. The visa center scanned all my documents (Original and photocopies) and returned all the documents to me. They didn't take any of my documents physically, only the passport. So, in my experience, documents scanning at the visa center is a very fast and effective way of submission.

It is on the VFS website where one book his appointment. but I think once you book your appointment, you can't upload the documents. In my opinion, it is better not to upload the documents, because the uploading facility is available at the visa center where you will submit your passport. Better have them scanned at visa center rather than the website of VFS because it causes many problems during uploading.

Hi Potolot,

I have submitted my application and now I need to arrange the mandatory documents as per checklist. I am stuck with the additional information that state:
"Evidence of family members remaining in your home country whilst you travel"

I have two sister who are married and living with their husband's place in her home country" I don't know what to say. Shall I tick this option yes or leave it blank. If I tick it then what sort of evidence should I provide? Much appreciated.

Hi Sark 91
Should I tick the box saying Evidence that the applicant is dependent on me(Sponsor) - for
example, money transfer receipts or bank statements showing money
transfers from me or evidence of accommodation provided by
me------

Does the evidence of accommodation means the accommodation provided in the UK or
the accommodation where they live now in home country? If it means the accommodation in the UK then I can tick, if not, Do I need to keep it blank
Need your suggestions,please

Post by potolot2 » Fri Jun 21, 2019 2:25 am

Hi all
I'm stuck in completing the *** question in the EEA FP checklist----
Should I tick the box saying Evidence that the applicant is dependent on me(EU national&Sponsor) - for
example, money transfer receipts or bank statements showing money
transfers from me or evidence of accommodation provided by
me(I'm EU national& Sponsor the non-EEA Applicant)------

Does the evidence of accommodation mean the accommodation provided in the UK or
the accommodation where the applicant lives now in home country? If it means the accommodation in the UK, then I can tick as I'm going to provide it, if not, Do I need to keep it blank as I don't provide the accommodation in the home country
Need your suggestions, please

Hi Potolot2,

If you notice on this question they stated Money transfer receipt"OR" Accommodation. If you will show the evidence of money transfer then in my opinion you should tick this option as what I did.

My sisters are married and living in the same country of my mother, but with their husbands' place. I am just wondering if I tick this box then this might affect the dependency of my mother on EEA family member in UK.

Hi Potolot
Actually,I don't have enough money transfer receipts.only 3 months,I have.So,I'm not showing it as it's not required for dependants parents.So,how about the accommodation? Is it mean the accommodation in parent's home country or in the UK?If you have any idea,pls share it

When I filled the online form, I ticked all the columns because otherwise, one can't proceed with the online application. But when I printed out the form, I ticked only the relevant columns. The accommodation or dependency is not a compulsory requirement in EEA FP so you can skip. And just tick the compulsory requirements in the hard copy.

Nope, I didn't tick money, home address and evidence of assets columns. I just ticked information about your visit, identity proof of myself and evidence that sponsor will travel to the UK in the second phase of the documents list.
