Re: Apply to the EEA Residence Card right after arrival?

I'm so sorry, I know this was a month ago but I can't help myself and comment, as this is juicy material: Wow, I am impressed how the arrogant Brits are actually making it really easy on us to apply for this. Thank you again. Regards, Joaquin Joaquin, two things: 1) You have a cultural confusion tha...

Re: Pre settlement

He applied on the 07/05/19 with biometric who is not Eea Citizen.He have a 6-month family member visa. Not sure what you are trying to say here. If he has a 6-month family permit, then it is only a stricker on his passport and it is not biometric. Are you trying to say he has another biometric card...

Re: EEA Family Permit (EFM) expiring, waiting for residence card

I wanted to check if this is the correct form: https://eforms.homeoffice.gov.uk/outreach/Return_of_Documents.ofml . It says: It is. Note that the drop down menus let you select the RC EEA as type of application. "This form should be used if: You have an outstanding application with the Home Office ...

Re: EEA Family Permit (EFM) expiring, waiting for residence card

Another option that might be possible, is if I receive a biometrics letter & confirmation of application before my current visa expires, I assume this will allow remaining in the UK while the RC is being processed, and it might allow working, but there seems to be very few guarantees with this. Act...

Re: EEA Family Permit (EFM) expiring, waiting for residence card

Someone I spoke to at HO suggested that I can stay while an application is being processed, but from doing more research, it seems clear to me that automatic extensions do not apply for EEA applications, and it would be overstaying. Exact. They might also have thought you were the spouse of your EU...

As non-EU family member, you have to use your biometric residence card to apply with the App, not your passport.

My wife is a non-EU citizen & have applied for residence card in first week of April. She received a CoA dated 01-May but no further communications. Give it a few days, still within the reasonable timeline (even if slightly on the longer end). I wanted to know can she apply for settlement scheme wh...

Re: Non-EU Can travel with pre settlement status letter

Will he get the same status though his period of stay in this country only 2 years We will NOT get the same status as you. He needs to have spent at least 5 years in the UK as the family member of an EU national to be eligible for Settled Status. In this case, he will get Pre-Settled Status. Whoeve...

Re: EEA Family Permit (EFM) expiring, waiting for residence card

1) can a non-EEA person (me) who has a permit as a Extended Family Member, remain and work in the UK after the 6 month FP expiry date? or is this overstaying the visa I'm not 100% sure so I'll let someone else confirm (my humble guess would be no, you likely cannot stay past the expiration date, an...

EEA RC/PR vs (Pre)Settled Status

Recently there have been many different posts asking for advice about whether to apply for the EEA route or to the Settlement Scheme. Since there is no absolute recommended route that works best for everyone, as individual circumstances play a great role in the decision, I thought it would be useful...

Re: EEA Permit For Arranged Marriage With Cousin

Well, you are married and the family permit is free, so nothing stopping you from attempting it this time, and if it does not work you can devise a plan B. I would say, in any case, do not overload them with evidence. Only 5-10 pictures, and representative messages that cover the last couple of year...

Also, something I have done is to stick post it notes on top of each pile of documents to guide the caseworker!

The basis for the refusal are that they are not satisfied with the evidence that they are her children. Saying they haven’t provided a birth certificate
