Re: Permanent Residence granted without paperwork (update)

Oh you're quite right. I did however phone the immigration office prior to submission and they did say that this is the approach we should take. It may also be that the rules have changed in the interim regarding maintenance of paperwork since we came into the country in 2010. Prior to our own appli...

Hi all, This is an informative post to let people know a possible path to permanent residence: My wife (Chinese) moved back to the UK with me (British) from Ireland in 2010 using the Surinder Singh route. We supplied all of the paperwork that they request, twice, for the initial 6 month and then the...

working whilst appealing?

Hi, my wife is currently applying for her EEA2 residence permit (I'm British, we're doing it via the surinder singh route) She has her application letter that says she can work. Hopefully they will just grant it and this will be an academic question, but we were wondering if she gets refused and we ...

Immigration Appeal Charges

I wonder if this is going to apply to people appealing through EEA route applications, since really they should not be charged for anything iirc.

to be quite frank, I don't think even they know. When my wife applied for her EEA FP, the application form insisted on original copies of all documents, but when she got to the embassy they said they didn't want original copies (I had sent my passport to China), they wanted copies. Thanks for your ...

This is pretty bad, especially since none of the other European countries I have lived in with my wife (I was in exactly the same situation as the OP, but in Germany) have this sort of consideration.

Yes I guess you are right that I just provided sufficient documentation. I was concerned as the people on the immigration helpline were telling me that because I claimed benefit, that meant I was not exercising my treaty rights. Anyway, fun with the EEA2 now, convincing some more people that I am ex...

Surinder Singh related case update

Hi, I have asked a few questions here about my case, and people have been helpful so I thought I would give an update that might be useful to people in the future. I had been living and working in Ireland for two years and was made unemployed at the end of it, and claimed state benefit for about ten...

does claiming benefits negate treaty rights?

I am a British National and I was working in Ireland for 2 years, then unemployed for 10 months, claiming jobseekers benefit, whilst looking for a job. I have been informed by UK immigration (as part of an EEA family permit application for my wife) that because I was claiming benefit, I was not exer...

so now they are saying you are exercising treaty rights if you are unemployed and claiming benefit?

So the woman who told me on the phone that while I (I am British) was unemployed in Ireland (10 months, after working there for >2 years) was talking out of her mule?

Oh one more question. In the event that she gets refused again, we don't really want to appeal as that takes months and we are fed up of being apart and were thinking of just getting her here via the spouses visa, which costs 700 quid. If we did that after a full refusal and wanted to make a complai...

Yes I'm aware of the basics thanks. The problem is my period of unemployment at the end of my time in Ireland. I do have evidence that I was registered with the employment authorities in Ireland and was seeking work while there

thanks.
