mischa, I may have come a bit too hard on you, but I felt inclined as your post felt a bit in-your-face. But with subsequent posts you have made it clear that you may not be much of a thug after all. :wink: As made clear by John, it finally boils down to different interests in the various fields of ...

runie80, I am not too sure whether failing to register in the FRMS in time will make you an overstayer as I have not come across something like that. Had it been an EEA2 application, there would have been no harm in a bit of a delay. But, I will let someone with practical experience respond to your ...

magata, I still remember how sceptical you were about applying without the Life in UK test, and the retention of residence bit. Glad it worked out. Congratulations!

Shiela, while there is no legislation that says that you have to be physically present while he enters the UK, it woulld be better if you were around. If not, atleast be in contact by roaming services so that you can be reached if the Immigration officer at the Port of Entry gives any trouble. But, ...

The sermon part of your post aside, I feel that you are unnecessarily complicating something that is not as complicated as you make it out to be. Directive 2004/38/EC gives to all EEA nationals three months of unconditional residence in any other EEA country....The condition is that you are exercisi...

The reason for appeal depends on the reason for the rejection. Do you not think that you might be getting a bit too anxious for no reason at all?

In my experience, when applying for an EEA FP, the British High Commission tends to ask for documents as if your application was being considered under UK immigration rules I do remember coming across a verdict on this board that made it clear that such an interpretation was purely a UK invention a...

Your wife will not need a work permit. But just having marriage certificate is also not enough. She will have send of for the Residence Card using the EEA2 to prove that she is entitled to work to prospective employers. It is a free application. So even if rejected, just rectify the mistakes and app...

Absurd as it sounds, I am sorry, but that is exactly what I am saying.

Have a good look at the EU rulings regarding the Surinder Singh route to be sure.

Using your own numbering to answer:- 1) No, If the marriage is considered legal in malaysia, only a copy of it in English should be enough. 2) Neither you nor your wife need an Entry Clearance to enter the UK. But having an EEAFP helps in getting the EEA2 application to be processed faster. 3) The a...

AFAIK the Surinder Singh route is only to return back to the home EEA country and cannot be used for visit purposes. If an EEA national is travelling to another EEA country other than his home country, what ever you said is applicable.

The fiancee route is open to you because of the statutory instrument, but this does nto mean that you will be considered settled Victoria, the EEA national IS considered settled due to the statutory instrument for such applications while in all actuality they are not!

Thanks for the clarification. I think that the OP is herself aware that the Registration Certificate is not proof of Permanent Residence and never claims as such. She is only concerned about her access to the UK route, period. And a Registration Certificate provides it. [Edit: I have just noticed th...

Hi again, Thanks.. I know I am not a permanent resident.. but what about the paragraph where it says "holds a registration certificate" - does that no longer apply?? You need to read that paragraph again. Your certificate would not have been issued under the 2000 regulations because those were phas...
