Hello tiktok,

Yes your wife can sponsor both your parents under EU settlement scheme family permit as long as you can prove your relationship and she has pre settled or settled status. It’s very easy and although dependency is assumed, it’s also good if you can send evidence that they depend on you.

I think your problem will be when your parents are granted the permit but your brother might be refused even though he is 5 years old.
They accepted my mother in law but rejected my sister in law and now we have even bigger issue because she can’t live by herself and my mother in laws permit will expire June. She still has not come to the UK.

So think wisely before applying. There is no way to link all their applications, you have to do a seperate one for each. Since the EU Settlement Scheme fp is easier there is a big chance they will accept both your parents but you have to apply for EEA fp for your brother since he is extended family and there is a chance he might be rejected then he will be by himself.

Any news on your sister in laws application?




Hi cookie0801


I would like to ask you pls I'm about to apply for my mum did you translate your mum birth certificate or just yours

Pls help me what documents did u provide thanks lot


Hi TikTok,

I applied for my husbands mother (my mother in law). Because he didn’t have a birth certificate “registered at the time of his birth”, him and his mother did a gov.uk approved DNA test. So we didn’t use a birth certificate in our case.

I think you only need to include and translate your birth certificate as this contains your mums name too but I have seen several cases where family permit was refused because the “Date” on the birth certificate was several years after the actual birth so just be sure to check and any translated papers should have original dates of registration.

All documents not in English have to be translated.

In our case, we included the following:
1. Application form and booking appointment letter
2. Passport photocopies of EEA national, husband and mother in law
3. Cover letter
4. EEA national employment letter
5. Settled status letter
6. 6 months payslips and 3 P60’s (both EEA National and husband)
7. Marriage certificate of EEA National and husband
8. DNA test of husband and mother in law
9. 6 months UK bank statement
10. 6 months money transfer slips
11. Flight tickets, photos, TB test certificate
12. My own children’s passport copies and birth certificates

Hope that helps. Wish you a successful application!

Hello everyone,

The situation around the world is really sad due to the outbreak of Corona virus.
I have my EEA family permit with me but still cannot travel to UK since all the flights are suspended for a month.

Hopefully the situation will be better in the coming months. I just wanted to know if anyone can help me out with my query.

Is it necessary to travel to UK within first 3 months of the visa start date. Is it a problem if someone die to unavoidable circumstances travels after 3 months of the visa start date??

And currently how long does it take to get pre settled status after moving to UK ??

Hi,
There is no law that forces you to come within 3 months. You can come to the UK in last month of your FP. There is no definite time period for settlement scheme to process as it varies case to case. According to recent information keep in mind at least couple of months. Stay safe and do not worry about coming asap. Later is better than sooner as UK is going to be next hotsopt of Covid-19. Almighty bless everyone in this situation

Hello guys,

Just to update, we decided to submit another application for one last time before we appeal.

Timeline:
Online application: 27/02/2020
Biometrics: 03/03/2020
Received by UKVI: 04/03/2020
Not straightforward email: 23/03/2020

On the 18th, we have UKVI a call and they said a decision has been made. Then today when we received this email, we gave them another call. The lady said the decision had been made and couldn’t explain why we received the not straightforward email. Very confusing.
Just waiting for get an email from TLScontact now.

Hi Shercorp,
I am sorry for your loss. I am not an expert but I think you shouldn’t let that discourage you. You mentioned that you are about to go for appointment at the VAC so that means you already applied which is good. Just be patient bro. I believe they will open when all this is over and your application will be processed. The only problem I see is not being able to provide your sponsors valid id when ask as they seem to always do for EU family permit applications but if you can provide it, great.

Please keep us up to date & best wishes.

Hey Tiktok,

No, nothing yet. They made a decision on our application but they probably haven’t been able to send the documents. Anyway the visa application centre is now closed so it looks like we won’t hear back from them until things return to normal. I’ll write on here any news we get, although we aren’t too hopeful because of all the refusals lately.

Don’t worry, they’ll probably reach a decision on your mum soon, they must have a shortage of staff due to the pandemic.

Keep us updated, I hope you get a positive result.

EEA family permit as Extended family member.

Biometric 30 Jan,2020
Receipt Acknowledgment 31 Jan,2020
Not Straightforward 11 feb,2020
Had a call from DDC DNA center from London
that UKVI contact them to ask about our DNA test report submitted if is genuine :13 Feb ,2020.

Still waiting for decision.

This is my 2nd application.
My first application was refused because:

1. I failed to submit evidence of my circumstance
that show that without financial assistance from my
sister I can’t survive.

2. Money transfer dated from 2016 -2018 was not in
my name and I failed to show evidence of relationship to
the people received the money on my behalf. Showing am not the intended beneficiary.


After review of the refusal docs I enclosed in my second application.

1.Circumstances that shows I can’t survive without my sister’s financial assistance
; Dad Death certificate,Stepdad Death certificate.
Mom mentally challenged .Live with Aunty whose old age 84 years attached her ID cards and birth certificate.

2. Money transfer from Jan 2016 -2018 dated my cousin and aunty I enclosed their ID card and birth certificate to confirm we are biologically related.
All these happened because I was under age.
But have money transfer from Jan 2019 -Jan 2020 in my name.

Re: Sheffield Visa Section - EEA FAMILY PERMIT

Hey guys I am currently in India. Possessing direct fm EEA permit valid till end of July 2020. But due to this pandemic, third lockdown is implemented in India till mid May 2020 and there is no surety that after lifting of lockdown the international travel will immediately start. I am afraid I am going to waste my current Visa. I wanted to travel to UK to join my spouse, but now it seems very difficult.

Since in response to my previous query , I had got reply that we need to consider at least 2 months period to convert EEa permit Visa to pre settled status.

But suppose I am not able to travel , will it be possible to reapply Visa say in start of July or June (my permit will still be valid then) ??? or will I have to wait till this permit expires (end of July 2020)to apply for new one??? Could anyone answer this query for me????

Or if I can travel (Incase the airlines start) considering only few days are left for current permit to expire... should I just take the chance and travel?? What is the best way ??

It is going to be really tough situation Incase I have to reapply for it. I have already left my job and this situation is just wasting my time and my Visa too. Such a bad luck.

Anyone who can suggest me best option for my situation??
