Re: Old EEA card is still good for traveling even after replaced by EUSS card

The policy has changed several months ago, and there EU Residence card is valid until its expiry, provided you are registered under the EU settlement scheme, there is not even a need to exchange.

Re: Does a UK Permanent Resident (ILR) require a visa to travel to Ireland/Dublin for tourism?

Hi, I am an Indian national with UK Permanent Resident with Indefinite Leave to Remain and am planning to visit Dublin on New Years Eve for a couple of days. Do I need to apply for a visa to travel to Ireland even if I have UK ILR? Of course you do need to apply for a visa. The UK dont own Ireland....

Re: Regarding EU citizen dependent

To the best of my knowledge, for your partner to qualify under the EU Settled Status Scheme, either the marriage needs to have taken place before 31st December 2020 OR the relationship needs to have been a durable relationship (a relationship akin to marriage, with shared bills and joint finances) ...

Re: EU3 Timeline for Non-Eu family Members of British Citizens

It will seem they are processing the most recent before the backlogged application made last year. So much for chronological, that they always talk about.

I am very happy for you guys, hopefully they will start processing the 2019 and 2020 applications soon.

My view is to appeal, as the rules since June has changed to the extent that you will have significant difficulties succeeding in a future application.

It will seem like the Home Office has made it her policy to appeal all Zambrano grant, and that is frankly ridiculous. I had 4 Zambrano allowed appeals, all very reasoned decisions with no basis for appeal. The Home Office appealed the 4th of them today. Utterly ridiculous and an abuse of power. The...

Re: Marrying UK partner resident in Ireland, currently non-EEA stamp 2 permissions

Littler's views are sound and appears correct. It matters not that she was on a different permission that was not supported by the British citizen.

So long as the relationship was durable before December 31 2020.

I will advise, like Littler that an application is lodged as soon as possible.

Re: 3 Months Visa scheme for EU national to end on Christmas Eve

Implicitly or explicitly it must be targetting EU driver, as I cannot see a cross continental worker coming to the UK for a 3 months visa ending on the 24th December 2021. Cannot see drivers outside the EU being allowed to work in UK immediately with their foreign issued HGV. Well in the last 2 week...

3 Months Visa scheme for EU national to end on Christmas Eve

The Government has announced a new 3 months visa scheme for EU national to come in. The scheme will end on the 24th December 2021. The government will also be setting up a task force to ensure that those EU nationals who do not depart by the 24th December will be rounded up and forcibly removed. HGV...

Thanks for this although it does not really state what I should include in that letter. INIS was also not helpful when I eventually got a reply.

A decision letter is sufficient. Registrations are merely a formality.

On the basis of section 9 of the 2004 Immigration Act , I am not sure I can accept that assertion as legally sound.
