Just to clarify, are the options now to apply only through UKVCAS or by post where you send off your documents?

Re: Experiences using new UKVCAS for naturalisation/citizenship applications

Hi, My partner (non-EEA) just got BPR card and as I am dual EU/British can apply for British citizenship straight away. When I applied for my British Citizenship I took my documents to be checked (by a council service I believe) before the application was sent so that I could hold on to my passport....

Re: Do dual EU-UK citizens have rights under EU law?

Thanks @silverman123

Got my dates confused. I thought the information for EU Regulations 2016 was coming up under the latest updates.

Anyway, I am sure everything will be fine as the law is on our side :)

Re: Do dual EU-UK citizens have rights under EU law?

Actually just reading the Immigration (European Economic Area) Regulations 2016 and it says: Family members of British citizens 9.—(1) If the conditions in paragraph (2) are satisfied, these Regulations apply to a person who is the family member (“F”) of a British citizen (“BC”) as though the BC wer...

Re: Can I apply for EEA Family Permit while in UK as tourist ?

I don't know if you can apply for a EEA family permit from within the UK as we did not do that, only after we got the 6 month one. Perhaps someone else can confirm this if they have been in the same situation. Regarding to flying together without a visa I don't know if anyone would allow him on the ...

Re: Can I apply for EEA Family Permit while in UK as tourist ?

I don't think you can apply for for the EEA FP as the non-EEA person would have had to be in the UK for 5 years. My case, EU citizen living in the UK. Met my non-EU partner abroad and then decided to get married, we applied for a Fiance visa to get married in the UK which was refused so we got marri...

Re: Do dual EU-UK citizens have rights under EU law?

My extended family member application has also been refused because I am a dual national, which is what I was expecting. I cannot appeal yet because the refusal is under 2016 regulations which don't allow appeal against refusal of EEA FP to Extended Family Member. Waiting for the opinion of ECJ on ...

Re: Do dual EU-UK citizens have rights under EU law?

The intro kinda sums it up: "Lounes has now added an interesting twist to this situation. The essence of this judgment is that a migrant Union Citizen who naturalizes cannot be compared to a native citizen – their migrant history means that they should be treated differently, and continue to enjoy t...

Re: Do dual EU-UK citizens have rights under EU law?

I agree with success82. It is important for people to share their experiences and use it when applying for whatever we need. Yes it is scary to think HO may refuse the application but remember the law is in our side for now but there's not much we can do but learn of other's experience and do what w...

Re: I have Dual Citizenship -Wife non EU . 5 years Visa finishes ...

Just found a few things online: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-41012265 UK will leave EU court's jurisdiction but this won't be until at least end of March 2019. This will depend on the transitional period which could take years as per this article: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/08/20/...
