Topic: EEA2 residence card validity
Replies: 1

Technically the RC may be invalid. But the carrier should only be interested in the expiry date of the RC which means there should be no problem reaching a UK port. UK border police should only be interested in the EEA national being resident in the UK and exercising treaty rights. If so, your spous...

Check if the "salarié en mission" card would be applicable (no clue about that, just googled it). There may also be the "van der Elst" visa but I do not know if France has implemented it and if so what restrictions would apply. Otherwise you will probably need a separate residence permit. If by "Sch...

Doing that through a benefit claim is possible too but will necessarily delay the process.

You are not required to send in anything beyond documents showing that the EEA is exercising treaty rights, current residence and the marriage certificate.

As I can read, your husband doesn't have a residence permit in UK, so maybe he doesn't fall under this category. The appropriate document would be teh Residence Card. But actually having such a documents should not be a condition. I do not really understand the quoted translation but I guess the Sl...

Here a link to the conformity study for Slovakia (Google document because I can't find it on the EU servers at the moment). They refer to an Act 48/2002 and mention that Singh was not implemented. But the study is from 2008. Maybe that's a starting point? As far as the Austrian embassy is concerned ...

They are certainly right to establish whether you have a claim to EEA rights or not although there should not be a fixed set of documents you must provide them with. The practical problem may be that the Slovakian authorities may be under the impression that they can put an "expiry date" on your cla...

I don't think you need to worry about this. A date stamp can be a convenient data point for a PR or naturalisation application though.

The Border Force Operations Manual (in point 5) clearly allows the stamping of EEA FP holders' passports until the presence of a RC.

Stamping of passports is standard procedure but can't legally be done in certain circumstances only e.g. EU passport or Residence Card holders. Having an EEA FP is no reason why the passport couldn't be endorsed. It would probably be quite unusual if it didn't happen.

The wife has been refused a spouse visa. How could an application for a visitor visa with that background be successful?

Regarding the spouse visa you may get more feed back in this sub forum . So because of that refusal they can refuse me? Even though i am exercising EU Laws .... The border officers in Calais will probably want to know why the staff in Greece was wrong. Maybe you have better arguments then and there....

Your problem is that the UKBA in Calais will know of the refusal and the reasons why.

Many of France's motorways (completely or in part) are toll roads.

1. UKBA staff works directly in Calais. I do not know about the ferry port you plan to use in NL. You may want to talk to the UKBA there directly. It's not a problem of the Dutch.

A marriage of convenience is also a reason for denial under EEA regulations.

I meant self-sufficient. That's a person other than one in employment, self-employed or studying. But obviously that's irrelevant here anyway. The reason for your travel is of no importance and so is a letter from your employer. The CoA is helpful because it is a proof of your application. It should...

As a US citizen you should have no problem boarding the plane back to the UK. I think the immigration adviser has advised you correctly except that your employment doesn't matter unless your wife happens to be self-sufficient. The CoA (I suppose that's the official letter you are referring to) shoul...

The problem is that you may not be able to convince the UKBA that you have a claim to EEA rights. Even if you made it past the border control what is your plan B?
