Re: Sheffield Visa Section - EEA FAMILY PERMIT

Godforsaken, new users before you post the same standard email which you received from the UKVI/DMC, please do check the previous pages first where you will find the answers for sure. Use your brain to use GOOGLE sometimes, users here aren't the experts. If you want to know their (old users) experie...

Re: Sheffield Visa Section - EEA FAMILY PERMIT

sorry to hear bryon. That is really bad. Where did you apply from? I am waiting to hear back from the BBC on appropriate contact for the reporter who recently reported on the Home Office's inhumane treatment of us. Are we all ok to provide our story to the BBC to push the politicians to help us? Ma...

Re: Sheffield Visa Section - EEA FAMILY PERMIT

Folks, before posting any "standard" email which you have received from the UKVI, please make sure that such email has not already been posted by someone in this forum.

At least, do not be lazy and go through all the pages, you will find some useful info.

My lawyer has sent a pre action protocol asking Home Office to issue visa in 14 days. If not, judicial review will be lodged against this nonsense delay.
Could you update us on the result?

Re: Sheffield Visa Section - EEA FAMILY PERMIT

Hi guys, My Taiwanese wife's EEA family permit was approved yesterday. To recap, we applied in Madrid on 1 August and escalated twice, got MP to help us (he wrote to UKVI but apparently never got a response) and complained to the Home Office. Not sure if any one or more of those made a difference. ...

It appears that a whole bunch of people have got a "decision made" email today, almost exclusively those who had received the "Oct 31st email". I'm still waiting, day 66
I haven't got such email! It has been 68 working days for me.

Where did you get that news tho?
