Hello mcovet. can you please verify the statement you said below "But don't give up, your 5 year time towards permanent residence is ticking from the date of your marriage and not from when they issue the card, so I would not worry TOO much about the time you are losing. " That would really be a go...

When the passports are returned with the residence card from the UKBA, are the original supporting documents, such as certificates, pay slips, etc., returned as well?

As an EEA national, you would have the coverage of the EU freedom of movement which allows your non-EEA national family member (your partner) to travel and live with you in another EEA country, in this case, the UK. Your post didn't state whether you and your partner were married. If this were the c...

This is what I honestly believed happened, the MP got in touch with the home office after I urged them to because of our flights, and the home office needed to make a decision by that day so they erred on the side of caution as it is more likely to be a sham marriage than a genuine one but they nee...

Wow! This is terrible! It seems very arbitrary and is most certainly an example of the UKBA being very discriminatory in their application of the Regulations. It's even flagrant that they'd accuse you of this without even having given you an opportunity for proving otherwise. I feel very sorry about...

Do you have a previously adverse immigration history? There's a document available from the UKBA about how they assess marriages of convenience. One of the criteria they consider is this, in addition to whether the couple appears not to have a common language (although this is Europe where everyone ...

The UKBA now returns passports when they're not requested from them?

That would clearly be a severe abuse of the EEA Regulations. The Regulations state that the treaty rights of non-EEA family members of EEA citizens ought to be applied irrespective of nationality.

How long after a marriage is it acceptable to submit an EEA2 application? My partner and I will be doing a civil partnership shortly and we wouldn't want there to be the accusation on our part of having a civil partnership of convenience. Nonetheless, isn't the burden of proof on the UKBA and not th...

It would be wonderful if someone could upload a picture of their COA for us to see what one looks like. (With the necessary areas redacted for privacy, of course.)

Thanks again. My nationality is Jamaican, so I require a visa for entry.

I've read the link above which is very informative. I'll try the suggestions there when re-entering and post back about what happens.

Thanks for your answer.

I just want to make sure that I'm clear about the possibilities, though: would there be anyway that they'd refuse me re-entry, even if we have all the necessary documentation? If there is a big risk of that, I wouldn't want to even risk leaving the UK for holiday.

Entering the UK without a family permit

Hey everyone, I'm currently in the UK on a 6-month tourist visa as a non-EEA national and I'm in a relationship with a EEA national (Polish) who is employed here and so is exercising treaty rights. We're both planning to have a civil partnership in the next two weeks before travelling to Spain on ho...
