Re: EEA4 & Naturalisation

The form is filled in properly. It just has marks. Yes, some of the fields with "?" are left blank because they turned out to be irrelevant. But some are not. For example, 1st point of entry I put London / Gatwick and then "?" mark as I was not sure if I was supposed to put there only "London" or o...

Re: Lost EEA residence card

I'm still not sure if I am re-applying for the RC, because it would be difficult to get my passport back by my travel in April, although I have started to arrange to obtain the marriage certificate for that. It takes sometime, because I need to get the registration certificate in my country at firs...

Re: Does six months absence count towards PR

i think section 4 belongs to retained rights :idea: :idea: . But does directive 2004 has any criteria that the EU national when leaving need to have/demonstrate the reason of absence since the reasons/mind can be changed any time for absence. How about if EU national leaves UK for 6 months intentio...

Re: RETAINED RIGHT OF RESIDENCE wants bring my non EU wife

Which would the application tricky as she would have incentive to overstay her visa (at least in the eyes of the immigration officer). Tricky is preferable to getting nailed for deliberate deception. If the wife is able to show a strong incentive to return, albeit temporarily to her home country, b...

Re: Does six months absence count towards PR

I agree. But as the form only asks for your activities in the UK, in practice the OP would be fine. The additional question arises: What will the non-EU family member present as a form of ID for their EU spouse? Photocopies do not seem to be accepted. also, just looked at the EEA4 forms and geez th...

Re: Lost EEA residence card

I do not think that a photocopy of a RC will be accepted if you wish to travel alone in April. If you haven't already, perhaps include a cover letter with your re-application mentioning your booked trip and discretion from the UKBA in speedily issuing you another RC in time. Important: Did you repor...

Re: Section6 in EEA2 form

As you say that your husband now possesses a document confirming his acquisition of PR, how he exercises his treaty rights is no longer of concern to the UKBA. They would have assessed this before issuing him with a PR doc. and will have his record on their system. Just provide the PR doc, tick (if ...

One more question. Is she need tell to embassy that she is going to visit me as a husband or she needs to tell them that she is going as tourist.
She needs to tell the truth.

Re: Does six months absence count towards PR

A further question, what qualifies as leaving the uk permanently? If my uk spouse were to leave the uk with me for six months out of the year, would I, the non eu eea2 permit holder still qualify for permanent residence after five years? I would think logically that if say an EU national were to ta...

Re: Swiss - EU bilaterals in jeopardy

My husband and I have been discussing this since the Swiss people had their say. I hail their take on direct Democracy as opposed to the farcical versions employed in most parts of the globe. My husband voted 'no' in this case, not because he is "left wing" but because unfortunately this popular ini...

Re: General discussion after BC and Passport application

Sounds slow even for a pre-Xmas application. Maybe worth checking with the countersignatory. Sometimes they try to contact them which slows the process. I'm returning to say that the situation was exactly as you deduced. My husband's counter-signatory told him today that they received a reminder le...

Re: Swiss citizen travelling to UK

She can register her presence with the Swiss Consulate in London if she wishes. It is not mandatory but beneficial if she plans on living in the UK for a period and requires consular assistance in that time.

Other than that, she is free to meander throughout the island as she wishes!

Re: Difficult EU spouse please advice

Are you able to apply for PR confirmation for yourself if you qualify? Getting your status confirmed will be reassuring and may bring some relief to any anxiety you may be experiencing. If possible, also try to re-engage with your spouse again and see if you both can dialogue and agree on a construc...

She is entitled to use NHS. I don't think clinics ask for a passport when registering but that might differ from clinic to clinic.
