Oh, that's fine kleana! I just meant make sure it's not a photocopy :) You sound like you're good to go! Absolutely no problem if the certificate is already in English. Again, good luck and keep us updated!

No, birth certificates aren't necessary. Just your passport and a copy of your husband's will do. And remember you need the original marriage certificate (translated if it's not in Polish or English). I can't speak for the embassy in Poland, but in Stockholm they just copied it and gave it back stra...

Hi all, Just a quick question. I'm a non-EEA citizen (Kenyan), married to an EEA citizen (Swedish). At the moment I've got a Family Permit (expiring 21st July). We're planning a short trip to Sweden next month and as I haven't got a Residence Card yet (which, according to the Swedish Embassy website...

He's been working in the UK for over a year now so AFAIK I have to prove he's a qualified person. So... I guess payslips, bank statements and proof that it's not a marriage of convenience are the biggies!

And the being on unpaid leave shouldn't be a problem?

Thanks for your help so far 86ti!

Thanks for the reply, 86ti. Right, better start getting some documents together then... and we're not even married yet! :) Oh, regarding work... I'm currently in Kenya - was in the UK until last week (PSW refused) but my employer is more than happy to keep me on. I didn't work when I wasn't allowed ...

VAF5 for EEA Family Permit

Hello everyone, I'm going to be applying for an EEA Family Permit after I'm married in a few weeks. I've just been reading through the form and it seems to be asking for an AWFUL lot of information! I was under the impression that technically all UKBA needed was proof of relationship and proof of th...

The EEA family permit is an entry clearance issued outside the UK and is valid for 6 months. Once in the UK you can apply for a residence card on form EEA2. This is valid for 5 years, after which you will be eligible for Permanent Residence (PR) I've also read some horror stories about the EEA2 wait...

Yep, will get a Schengen visa from home :)

But anyone got any idea how long the EEA FP will take to process from Stockholm, and whether or not it's a good idea to apply so soon after the wedding?

Thanks,

Thanks for the reply Obie. Yes, I am in the UK at present but my PSW extension has been refused so I have to go back to Kenya ASAP. We're not married yet, but we're hoping to do so in the next couple of months in Sweden. That's why I was wondering about applying for the EEA family permit from there....

I assume I'll get documentation from the AIT stating that I've withdrawn my appeal... Is it a good idea to take this to the airport with me in case I get stopped? This will show the IO that I have overstayed for less than 28 days won't it? If they go by the end date of my last visa it'll look like I...

Sorry Obie, I don't mean to doubt you but I haven't come across any info regarding a 28 day ban - have you got any links or anything?

Also, if anyone's got any ideas about this, your views would be very welcome!

Thanks,

Does the 28 days (to leave the UK) start on the date I withdraw my appeal, or is it strictly from the date of the refu...

Hi everyone, I wonder if you can help. My PSW (transitional arrangements) was refused (maintenance) in August. My balance dipped to below £800 on a few occasions and I can't show funds in any other accounts. I sent the appeal papers off but I'm well aware that the appeal is more than likely to fail...
