Hello everyone

I have been following this thread for some time now, hanging on to every new info

I'm an EU national moved to UK in May 2017 and wife is non-EEA.
Below is the time line
6 June 2017 - Applied for EEA family permit (Within 3 months of my arrival)
21 Aug 2017 - Got application not straightforward email
After multiple escalations finally on 9 January 2018 they made a decision with my wife received today after collecting the passport - EEA family permit rejected.

Reason given
1. "EU family memeber passport or id not submitted" - This is false as we clearly submitted a copy
2. "No evidence of marriage or photos" - This is also false as we submitted marriage certificate along with tons of photos (may be 50+), whatsapp chats, emails etc
3. "No evidence that i'm exercising EU treaty rights" - This also false as i had been in UK under 3 months since arrival when the application was submitted there is no need to exercise treaty rights

My wife and i are shattered after waiting for 7 months for the Visa they have refused.

Not sure what to do next :(

Hey Kap, where did you apply from? and did they let you appeal your case or not? My husband also applied in 23rd June and still awaiting decision, he applied from Nepal to be with me here but they are taking forever to grant visa.
Done couple of escalations but doesn't seem its working lost all the hope and so stressed out with this waiting.
Still hoping to get good news trying to be positive.
May be your wife has to reapply because there is not any better option that I know. Take care

Applied from Mumbai
Application does not attract right of appeal as you have failed to supply any evidence that you are related as claimed to the EEA sponsor - Did they even check the evidence as we had submitted tons of it!!

Unfortunately, there are many new officers, who are not very experienced. Many time I have heard of their mistakes, you could even receive somebody’s passport by mistake...
Anyway, you have two options. Or to reapply again, indicating in your cover letter what mistakes they have made with your first application. Now seems the processing time is not as long as was before, many people have already received their permits in a month time.
And the second option is pass the UK border ( between UK and France) by ground without visa, just to have all documents which are required for visa, derective, explaining that your wife has rights to enter without FP and the most important you to be with her when she’s crossing the border. Many people (recently) have done it, it took them less than 10 min to get a stamp.

Dont let yourself down, there are solutions!

Hello ,
Don't let this throw you off balance. Reapply again. I mean ASAP.
I know of cases that took over 2 years but they never gave up. They were only reunited last week Saturday.
I've waited over 6 months myself
Infact let this strengthen the bond between you and your wife.
Reapply ASAP
Cheers

Kap 295,
There is nothing special about crossing France- UK border ( same like any other border). In order to have an entry stamp, you should, first of all, be together with your spouse while crossing, have all documents which you have prepared before for the visa( sponsors UK details, marriage certificate, ....) and in case printed detective 2004/38/EC
Thats all.
Good luck, its gonna work.

1. You said you submitted a copy, the guidelines say that you have to submit the original or a CERTIFIED copy
"your family member’s valid passport or national identity card (or a certified copy if you can’t provide the original)" - from gov.uk website.

2. Was the certificate of marriage in English? If not, does it come with a translation in English? Did you attach pictures of the wedding? Maybe of the reception as well, to show them that you had a proper wedding and not an arranged one?

3. Since you moved to the UK in May and your wife applied just after, may I ask you why you didn't wait for the outcome of the EEA FP first, applying for her as ACCOMPANYING you and not joining you in the UK? As I did, I waited first for the outcome of the EEA FP for my wife before both of us moving to the UK attaching a cover letter explaining that I wanted to find a job in the UK and I wanted my wife with me. It gives them the feeling that you don't want to leave your wife behind.

If it works out this simple, i literally wasted 3 months waiting for nothing. It only takes 6 hours driving from where i live to the port of eurotunnel... But without EEA FP, can we work legally in UK? Or should apply the resident permit first? But now without my passport, i can't do nothing.

Without even EEA FP it is very very rare that someone will offer a job to a non EEA national. You should wait for the residence card.

I think from my personal point of view, that all this rejection of visa applications is nothing but a new policy followed by the UK in a nonhuman manner. Its purpose is to not ease migration. The European immigrants were placed in awkward positions either to stay half-family or leave the UK, there was no other reasons to refuse after waiting for a long period of seven months, most applications over the past two weeks were rejected for the same reasons
I have waited more than 7 month And still waiting no even any sign
150 working days
Its to hard i have newborn who I never seen there and thy keeps playing them gams with eea to get better benefit! That’s very bad people got tired of that
As me i do
But never giv up whats ever it will take

My point of view is that I applied for my wife's FP (february 2017) and my wife's daughter's FP (december 2017) , then I helped 3 friends with their applications (may 2017, september 2017 and october 2017) and all of us received the Permits in less than 2 weeks. I still think that people waiting for 6 months are not following the guidelines 100%.

It gives them the feeling that you don't want to leave your wife behind.

I think from my personal point of view, that all this rejection of visa applications is nothing but a new policy followed by the UK in a nonhuman manner. Its purpose is to not ease migration. The European immigrants were placed in awkward positions either to stay half-family or leave the UK, there was no other reasons to refuse after waiting for a long period of seven months, most applications over the past two weeks were rejected for the same reasons
I have waited more than 7 month And still waiting no even any sign
150 working days
Its to hard i have newborn who I never seen there and thy keeps playing them gams with eea to get better benefit! That’s very bad people got tired of that
As me i do
But never giv up whats ever it will take
My point of view is that I applied for my wife's FP (february 2017) and my wife's daughter's FP (december 2017) , then I helped 3 friends with their applications (may 2017, september 2017 and october 2017) and all of us received the Permits in less than 2 weeks. I still think that people waiting for 6 months are not following the guidelines 100%.
I said last 2 weeks

Oh if you can help people pleas help us to get our fp

1. You said you submitted a copy, the guidelines say that you have to submit the original or a CERTIFIED copy
"your family member’s valid passport or national identity card (or a certified copy if you can’t provide the original)" - from gov.uk website.

2. Was the certificate of marriage in English? If not, does it come with a translation in English? Did you attach pictures of the wedding? Maybe of the reception as well, to show them that you had a proper wedding and not an arranged one?

3. Since you moved to the UK in May and your wife applied just after, may I ask you why you didn't wait for the outcome of the EEA FP first, applying for her as ACCOMPANYING you and not joining you in the UK? As I did, I waited first for the outcome of the EEA FP for my wife before both of us moving to the UK attaching a cover letter explaining that I wanted to find a job in the UK and I wanted my wife with me. It gives them the feeling that you don't want to leave your wife behind.

Kap 295,
There is nothing special about crossing France- UK border ( same like any other border). In order to have an entry stamp, you should, first of all, be together with your spouse while crossing, have all documents which you have prepared before for the visa( sponsors UK details, marriage certificate, ....) and in case printed detective 2004/38/EC
Thats all.
Good luck, its gonna work.
Has anyone successfully tried this way recently? Do they stamp an EEA family permit at the border? Do i drive across there border or take the EURO rail?

I have written to you above post. Recently around 10 days ago, couple of people had successfully passed, all procedure at the border - about 10 min. They had gotten the stamp in their passport and now are preparing documents for Residence Card. Yes, you take euro tunnel ( all information about trip you can find on their web site)
