read through all the posts about the E.U 1 application for the last 6months...they are pretty easy to find. The process can be long and frustrating,try the spousal work permit route for employment.

Court case is still on.
Fax them to get papers back. They ignore phone.

10 months here... no decision yet. Got papers after 6 1/2 months and ater asking 3 times them to return them.
"Waiting for namecheck" since 2007.

We applied end of July 2006, and our application was turned down in April 2007 on the basis that we haven't lived together in another EU Member State before.

We applealed the decission at the beginning of april and are still waiting for response to that.

We got married in Dublin, so that doesn't make any difference. The only thing we got back were out passports. Someone here said that the court case is now scheduled for the 5th of June, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

A lot of people on here seem to be thinking about moving away. We have decided to move to the UK in July.

Hi cartaverde

thanks for reply.

I hope u do get a positive decision soon.

Why are they saying that you must have lived in another eu country ?

where is this condition comming from ?


As far as i know it never was thhere before.

Also one more thing.I have About 6 or 7 multiple Visas to UK since last 5 years. and i have lived in uk for 3 months at one time.

Will that count as residence in another EU country.

Crazy crazy crazy law !

Then they say they are making things easy for Immigrants.

Yes i know Have called them and waited in for for 30 minutes up to several times.

Much appreciate your Input guys.

I am scared now what once was our right now appears to be not our right.
I applied this year so i think there will be very less hope for me.

but before evey TOM,DICK and Harry used to go in there and get a 5 year old visa. what happened now ?

I am disgusted by the Immigration Depertment in this country.Hardworking people are never rewarded and all those who use loop holes are always through !

I am in Two minds now i dont know what to do should i live here and go through my case or should i widthdraw my case and move to UK or my spouce country and apply from there.

They are supposed to send you an acknowledgement when you submit the application,but they don't usually do that...we found our case no. when we called the Dept.of justice later. They usually don't accept a visit visa as an indication of residency.
The conditon for residency in another E.U country is not even mentioned in the E.U 1 form, but they made that a requirement in an Irish law passed in January 2007.

Since September last year we still have not received this number. Don't get your hopes up. Even when we finally got our passports back (after writing, ringing, mailing for 5 months!) we didn't get a reference number.

As it is said by the F*cker Micheal Mccdowel that the new regulation will effect by the 1st Jan'07.. what about those who applied in 2006 May/June? why they are turning down our applications for the regulation who took effect after 6 months of our submitted applicatons?

Yes but when they refuse as they are doing to everyone.What i will do ?

I am paying 1200 euros rent and crazy cost of living here

If they ask me to leave country thats will be a disaster.

I am thinking of getting passport back and applying for a resident visa for uk or Poland

do you think its a realistic option ?

I think it's a good plan, yes. Us too paying 1200 rent on one income, it's mental. We also don't have anywhere to go if this doesn't work out. We sold everything back home and have nobody to help there (or here for that matter)

I was informed by someone that there had been a previous legislation signed into law on May 2006, called S.I 226. This law is in the archives section of the INIS website, and it pre-dates the one signed in Dec2006.

This does not help us unfortunately, but thankfully we have the Decision of the European Court of Justice from Jan 2007 in case of 'Jia Vs.Migrationsmerket of Sweden in our favour.

This law by Mc dowell is rubbish. Irish government cannot implement any law and make it superceed the EU law

They should keep in mind that its the "EU" because irish are rich nation today.

Irish law just wana get better deal by getting everything and not goving anything in return. Its carzy . The investors in westren europe have bough properties and business in eastren europe and enjoying life while people from eastren europe still face problems
