Re: EU Settlement Scheme application process, passport and travelling

[*] Will it be necessary to post the passport to UKVI? According to the most up-to date information here , yes. This is because there are now three different ways to apply: a) App b) Post c) Identity document scanning location The only way to use either the a) App or the c) Identity scanning locati...

EUSS application process, passport and travelling

A few questions about the EUSS application process for the family members of an EU citizen without a biometric card, applying for the 'pre-settled' status: Will it be necessary to post the passport to UKVI? Perhaps it is possible to simply scan it and provide a copy when giving the biometrics? If a ...

No. Your wife (EEA citizen) must either be already in the UK or travelling with you.

Re: Non Eu with no BRP and applying EU Settlement schame

Normally on the option of going for biometric there will be no need to post your passport. Passport verification will be done on your appointment date. but we thick the box " sending by post" how can we change that now? As I have understand, we need to send the passport if we don’t have any BRP. Th...

Re: EEA residence or EU settlement scheme residence permit???

I have two questions concerning the non-EEA family members of EEA citizens (permanently settled): I read that the application for RC (pre-settled) under EUSS is online+post and biometric enrollment. Will it be necessary to post the passport or they will just scan it during the biometric enrollment? ...

However, this route will be closed after Brexit and it is not clear yet whether the UK-issu...

Yes, that is what I meant. I provided a letter of support for UKVI, paid her student fees and accomodation. Sorry for the confusion. I used this term because in the UKVI guidelines it was called "financial sponsor" or something like that. We used Short Term Study (STS) route rather than Tier 4. Got...

Re: Getting married with non-EU/EEA citizen

If what you mean is that you paid for her visa fees, or provided a letter of support regarding an aspect of her life here, such as accommodation or living expenses, then avoid describing this as "sponsoring", as that is misleading as to what exactly what type of visa she has. Yes, that is what I me...

Hello, Situation: I am an EU citizen who is a permanent resident in the UK. I have the DCPR as well as the settled status under the new EU Settlement Scheme (due to Brexit, it seems that the two routes are legally separate but with almost the same effect). My girlfriend is a non-EU/EEA citizen. She ...

Short-term student visa (11 month route)

Hi, My girlfriend, who is a non-EU/EEA citizen, would like to apply for the Short-Term Student visa (11 months English language route). The studies would take more than 6 months (hence the 11 month visa). I would provide full sponsorship of the studies. She currently has a valid Standard visitor vis...

Re: Document not returned - what options do I have now?

I think there are quite a few of us who wait for the documents to be returned. I do not think there is much we can do about it, unless you have enough free time, money and nerves to fight UKVI.
