Re: EEA2 about to turn into PR: how to prove right to work?

Thanks for the replies! Very helpful.

In our case it looks like it will indeed be when his permit expires. Married 5 years,we've been living and working in the UK continuously.

EEA2 about to turn into PR: how to prove right to work?

Hi, My American husband has an EEA2, which expires in october 2016. As I understand, he will then gain automatic PR. He just got an offer for a new job, and his new employer wants proof of his right to work beyond october. How do we prove this?? I've been looking at the UKBA website but can't seem t...

Re: EEA3 - CSI/EHIC question

hi, you're welcome - I didn't apply for British citizenship. I wanted the PR certificate so that my daughter would be born British. It turned out to be a little complicated, though. My 5 years came due on September 1st, and my daughter was born on October 19. But by the time I applied my PR certific...

Re: CSI

You should explicitly point out the equivalence in a cover letter to your application sound advice - in fact I will ask French SS to point it out themselves in their letter. Hi - I was just wondering if this letter worked as I am in a similar situation to you. Look forward to hearing from you. Than...

You can also just translate them yourself. I would imagine UKBA are capable of understanding French. I'm always paranoid that if translate even the simplest and most straightforward documents myself, the UKBA will use that as an excuse to reject my application, or at least to send it back to me and...

Thanks for letting me know. We have (among other documents) four Belgian payslips we need translated, I wonder if we need to pay for each one separately even though they are practically the same? Probably... :( actually I would guess that would bring the price down, I don't know how they calculate ...

update:

as it turns out Wolfestone do not have different prices for certified/non-certified. They are quoting me £79+VAT for two certificates delivered by French social security (both very short and straightforward). Both certified, and free delivery.

Hope it helps!

What do UKBA mean by "reliable translation"?

Hello, One quick question regarding the translation of documents for use by the UKBA. I am applying for an EEA3 (certifying permanent residency), and the application form states Any documents which are not in English must be accompanied by a reliable English translation Sounds terribly vague to me, ...

Are you the EEA national? If so, then the EEA3 NOT the EEA4 form is the applicable one to fill out. What does French SS provide? The UKBA would need to see that you either had CSI in the UK covering your years of study or the equivalent (state or private) covering the same period from France. Oh ye...

EEA3 - CSI/EHIC question

I will soon be applying for an EEA4 [edit: EEA3] and need to prove CSI for my UK students years, sep 2008-sep 2010 (I was employed in the UK after that). I do not have an EHIC for the period, but I *do* have a...

Technically your husband should have had comprehensive sickness insurance throughout his time here to benefit from treaty rights. Your husband may get away without this requirement if he applied for a residence certificate before June 20th 2011. This comes from chapter 6 Annex B of Permanent Reside...

Further to my previous post, I have now spoken to someone at Immigration enquiries by telephone (having been advised to call them by the EEA queries call centre).

I don't know the details about applying for family permit -- but I think you can be still inside UK while your partner is applying -- but do prove that you are exercising treaty rights in the UK and your partner is joining you. I don't know if your partner is eligible to apply for this in France bu...

Hi, I think it's not possible to apply RC outside UK but instead you need to apply for something called European citizen family permit which gives almost the same rights as RC but only valid for 6 months -- so you can enter UK and start to work as well. Once in the UK, you can start to apply EEA2 i...
