EEA1 and EEA2

Hi there,

Does the EEA national need to apply for an EEA1 in order for the non-EEA national to apply for the EEA2?

Thanks for that Forza! Just one more question (and please don't shout at me if it's a silly one) :) : What hold-up is their in your life if you have to wait six months for the RC? As far as I understand it, the RC is just confirmation of your rights, so how does it affect a person if they have to wa...

Can I just ask a simple question (or two): Once you've applied for the EEA2, can you get your passport back for traveling purposes? What does the COA that you receive a week or two after application actually say? I will be applying for an EEA2 in a few months and was wondering about these practicali...

Hi Heinrich, As far as I understand this: http://www.inis.gov.ie/en/INIS/Pages/WP07000278 it does not look like you can use this particalur route. There might be other avenues open for partners of EU nationals. If nobody here can give you a definitive answer maybe you should ask a solicitor for soun...

Hi Fumo, As we went through a solicitor I cannot in absolute certainty say we received a confimation letter (aknowledgement of application), but I don't think we did. As far as I remember within 2 weeks we received the approval letter with no other communication from the Dept of Justice inbetween ap...

Here is the details from the INIS website:

http://www.inis.gov.ie/en/INIS/Pages/WP07000278

This is all the info that is available. I made the application just like it states in this link, and I also used a lawyer. That was all. It was surprisingly quite simple.

Hi there, I also trained on Stamp 1A, but unlike you I was already in the country so I'm afraid I can't tell you what to bring for definite... nothing is really for definite with any airport immigration officer, so I can understand why you are nervous :D But... you have an initial contract (which is...

But to date, I have never even read anything official about the existence of stamp1A.. so if there are any info out there I'll eat my h...

Firstly, THANKS for those links!! 2.Does the EUfamilyVisa allow me to work in the UK from the first day we enter? Are employers generally willing to take you on or do you have to wait for the EEA1 & EEA2's to be processed? See also Preventing illegal working: guidance booklets for United Kingdom emp...

Last week I went to get my new GNIB card with my new green card and I got a stamp 1, for one year... When I asked tey said that I got the correct stamp.. I...

Hi there... I wonder if anybody here can give any insight into my issue? I have been on a stamp 1, issued by the GNIB office as I was studying for my CIMA qualification and needed to work full-time. So it was not a work permit and I didn't go through the Dept of Trdae & Employment. Now I have qualif...
