Welcome to immigrationboards.com!
I am sorry about your case. I feel sad at the same time knowing that we have applied the same visa. Where did you apply for EEA? Did you apply with the support of agency who dealt with processing visas abroad? Actually before the Sheffield sent back my docoument to my husband'd address in U.K I have received an email that they cannot find the appendix 2. So I email my agent about it since I am living far from Cebu. I have to take a flight just to get there,she told me that appendix 2 is only applicable for spouse visa,so my agent and my husband sent the UKvisa that appendix 2 is not applicable for my EEA. They apologised for the inconvenience and since then I had no news from them.

I have been following this forum ever since I received the "not straightforward" email on September 12th. I submitted my biometrics on 24th August 2017 at VFS Mumbai (North) India.
I received my passport with a refusal letter on 29th December, and I am taken aback by the reasons for refusal. I can't believe the visa office needed 4 months to refuse my permit on these grounds.
You have failed to submit valid identification in your name in the form of a passport which is required for your application. Therefore, this department is unable to confirm your relationship to your sponsor. As such, this department is unable to confirm that you are the family member of an EEA national in accordance with Regulation 7 of the (European Economic Area) Regulations 2016.
You have failed to submit any evidence that your relationship with your EEA national sponsor is as claimed. As evidence of your relationship we would expect to see evidence in the form of an official marriage certificate along with other historical documentary evidence or wedding photos that show that a marriage actually took place.
In view of your failure to provide sufficient satisfactory evidence, I am not satisfied that you are the family member of an EEA national in accordance with Regulation 7 of the Immigration (European Economic Area) Regulations 2016.
I therefore refuse your EEA Family Permit application because I am not satisfied that you meet all of the requirements of Regulation 12 of the Immigration (European Economic Area) Regulations 2016.
Your application does not attract a right of appeal under regulation 36(4) of the Immigration (European Economic Area) Regulations 2016 as you have failed to supply any evidence of your sponsor's identity and that you are related as claimed to your EEA national sponsor.
I am wondering whether it is even a possibility to make a visa application without submitting the passport. How could they say that I haven't submitted my passport when it was actually held with them for over 4 months.
Given below is the list of documents I submitted:
1. My Original Passports (Old & New)
2. Notarised copies of my husband's (Sponsor) passport, OCI, Portugal Citizen Card, Provisional Driving Licence
3. Notarised copy of my husband's declaration as a sponsor
4. Notarised Sponsorship Undertaking (Form SU07/12)
5. Attested copies of my husband's (sponsor) bank statement (1 year)
6. National Insurance Number
7. Original Employer's Letter
8. Attested Payslips (6 months)
9. Attested P60
10. Attested copies of my bank statement highlighting foreign remittances received from my husband since February 2014
11. Western Union money transfer receipts
12. Screenshots of WhatsApp call log
13. My husband's boarding passes for his visits to India
14. Notarised copy of the Letter from the Landlord
15. Original council tax, electricity, broadband, TV services and gas bills
16. Photos of our civil registration marriage, family pictures, other outings/celebrations since 2007, my father's funeral etc were also submitted
I am thinking of reapplying by the following week. However, I do not understand what additional documents must I produce for a successful application. My husband is currently in India with me, and hence, he will be unable to notarise certain documents in the UK.
Could someone help me with the following:
Can we notarise his passport etc in India?
Can we submit the same papers as last time or do we need to get fresh ones, since it has been over four months?
And what is that I need to submit that will satisfy the reasons for refusal?!
Is there anyone who received the same refusal letter?! Were you successful in your second attempt?!

After escalating for the 3d time today I've received the following email from the contact centre:
"Dear Kmazyar ,
Thank you for contacting UK Visas and Immigration International Contact Centre.
With regards to your enquiry about the status of your application, I can confirm that we have made a decision on your application. We cannot discuss the outcome of your application on-line or by telephone. If you have requested a courier service, you can track the location of your travel document on line. If you have opted to collect your decision from a Visa Application Centre team they will notify you that your documents are ready for collection."
The tracking on the DHL site shows that the documents were sent yesterday from Istanbul and today have arrived to Tel Aviv DHL offices. Waiting for the courier in the next few days and hoping for a positive decision. Today are 98 working days for me applied from Tel Aviv, Israel. Keeping my fingers crossed and biting my nails.
Keep the good faith everyone, sooner o later the decision will come for everyone.
Where is your Husband from?kmazyar wrote: ↑Thu Jan 04, 2018 5:16 pmHi,
I live in Israel.
My husband is in the UK since August 2017, working.
We are married for 8 years and have been living together for about 10 years.
I've had a EEA FP in 2015, expired now.
Hope this is of help.
