I’ve got my decision made today but still don’t know the answer.
I haven’t received the email yet but I saw it online to the centre I’ve made the application so I’m expecting it.
Anyone knows how long does it takes to get my passport back ?
Applied from Albania in 16/08/2017

Thank you!

Hi everyone,

I thought or sharing my case with you. It might help some of you who has got a first refusal on a probably silly basis.

I first applied on May 2017, two weeks after we got the outcome of our application for my wife's family permit (I'm French). They refused and from the refusal letter we could tell that they didn't really look or consider our application properly. My wife was in the letter mentioned as my brother in law. So whatever they were saying next wasn't relevant.

We made a fresh application in July and I appealed the first decision at the same time. End of January, the home office had to provide the reasons/motivations why they refused (based on a legal argument this time and not on their mood swing) of our first application. At the same time we received the outcome of our second application which turned out to be positive thanks to God. I had called them in November but nothing happened, it is just a scam to steal honest people money. I don't even see the point in calling them.

Conclusion, always appeal, make a new application. Worst case scenario, you wait 6/7 months but this time they consider your application seriously and on legal grounds. And if they say no again, the tribunal will give you your rights.

Good luck to all of you, this website helped me a lot so I thought I would share with you my story.

NB: when we reapplied we of course provided more documents to prove that our marriage was a real one. But that is for them to prove it if they have suspicions.

Hi there!
Could you please share the list of documents you provided to the UKVI?
Since your application was so smooth, it would be helpful for others to know what to prepare.
Of course, I understand it differs from case to case, still, it will be good to know.
In my case, my wife is Russian, I am Romanian, studying full-time in the UK - we applied twice already, once in July 2017 (refused because they didn't consider the proof of my private medical insurance at all), second time in September 2017, refused a week ago, on unknown grounds, as the wife's passport has not yet arrived.
Any help will be most welcome.
Thank you

Sure!

Here is my timeline:

Date submitted: 20th March
Biometrics taken: 20th March
UK Recieved application: 20th of March at the Visa Application centre in Sheffield.
EEA PR recieved: 5th April
Passport recieved: 10th of April.

For us, it was the first time applying. So all in all, it took 3 weeks!


All hope still remains! Keep contacting them with regards to information.

Thanks to everyone who posts on this forum.
So I have been with my girlfriend for over 2 years. We previously applied for an unmarried partner RC and was rejected. Then we came back to nigeria and got married. My first EEA FP application in lagos was refused after 16 days due to not adding evidence of correspondence although I showed evidence of cohabitation. Second one in abuja was refused after 5 weeks due to not adding extensive evidence of EEA sponsor not exercising EU treaty right despite adding DBS check form, tax certificates and employment letter. Third one applied at abuja was then approved after 18 days after adding work ID card and email correspondence with her work supervisor. Now looking for tickets to travel :D
