Re: EEA family permit

Hi Sidali42,

You are applying for an EEA registration Certificate or permanent resident document right?

You can use the European passport return service.

Details are here:

Re: Seeking advice applying For EEA FP

Hi, I think you'll have to apply from your country of origin unless you have a residency permit for Romania. You don't have to travel together to the UK as long as your fiancee is living in the UK and exercising treaty rights for more than three months. The travelling to the UK rule only applies if ...
