Hi I just got my EEA2 RC. We submitted a certified copy of my partner's passport because he needs it for his work and it was fine. My passport was original though. You should also include statements from friends and family, lots of family photos, evidence that you have travelled together, bank state...

...'apply with a new application form, with all the supporting document'.... AND potentially wait for a non-specified amount of time? No thanks

I think i will take the risk of having my EEA2 visa on an expired passport

HI

Can you tell me where you got the information that you DON"T need to transfer the EEA2 to a new passport? My EEA2 visa, which got approved today, was stuck on the very last page of my passport. So now I need to apply for a new passport this week.

My solicitor just sent me a scan of my RC and it got approved on the 25th Nov. So my visa got approved in 7 weeks and 1 day.

you should get a support letter from a solicitor. I got my solicitor to write me a letter because my visa was expired. I managed to get a contract job, and my COA arrived 1 month after I started. Luckily for me my solicitor letter was sufficient and my employer did not ask for the COA.

my solicitors letter said that though she could not determine what Immigration's decision would be, she saw no reasons why I would not get the EEA2 visa. She then stated the legal reasonings of why I qualify.

the letter says that your employer should ask to see your RC after 6 months, but that's up to them. I doubt my employer will ask to me my RC though. They would have probably forgotten by then.

I hope I get my EEA2 soon because I need to travel for work in the first half of next year :(

the lenght of the contract is up to the employer to decide. I am on a 9 month contract, because I was able to convince my employer that I will definately get my EEA2 (I used my solicitor's letter as back up support)

however, my solicitor told me that, hypothetically, the Visa took more than 6 months to process, then my expired tier 1 would still be valid so I would still legally be able to work until I get a response from immigration Note: I got my solicitor to write a support letter, to support my COA letter. ...

I am not sure if everyone has the same statement, but mine says I can work, however, after 6 months from my application date, the employer should ask for proof of my RC as evidence of my eligibility to work. I would assume that people in different situations would have different work rights on the t...

When I applied for the EEA2, I was offered 2 times on the same day, one full time, the other is a maternity cover. I was 'offered' the full time job, but in the end their HR department would not sign off on it because the COA was not enough. The COA does not garantee that you will get your visa, its...

Hi I am in a similar situation. My tier 1 visa expired on Oct 10, and I applied for a EEA2 on Oct 5. In reflection, I wished I could have applied for it months earlier because it was a barrier with one potential employer. If you apply for a EEA2, your Tier 1 visa will be valid, even if expired, unti...

In response to Directive's comment, my solicitor suggested the same thing to me, that I should stay in the UK as I am on an expired Tier 1 visa as there could be problems re-entering the UK. Also I my work rights on the Tier 1 would no longer be valid if I left the UK before I receive the EEA visa

I could be completely wrong but i thought you needed to have a residence document confirming a right of residence in the UK, such as a work visa, to apply for a EEA2 within the UK. If you don't have right of residence, you need to apply for a Family permit first? Not sure now.

I am abit confused. So she is on a tourist visa but you have applied for a EEA2 residence visa? Is that what you mean> How can you apply for a EEA2 residence visa without getting the family permit first, if she is only on a tourist visa?

Hi

I think you need to speak with a solicitor.
I'm currently on an expired Tier 1 visa. I applied for an EEA2 just before my Tier 1 expire so legally my tier 1 is still valid. I know if you are on a work-related visa, it will continue on even if it is expired, but i am not sure about a tourist visa.
