Car Insurance with International Driving Licence

I highly recommend xxx for expat auto insurance. I am resident in the UK for almost 2 years, and 11 months ago got my full UK license. I drove on my US license until I received my full UK license. Many insurers did not want to consider my 20 years driving experience. (Our previous insurer xxx did no...

Re: Questions related to driving and insurance in UK

I would highly recommend xxxxx. It's best to ring them and let them know your situation. They gave me a good rate. They acknowledged my driving experience from the US, I presume they would accept driving experience from elsewhere in the world. I have been resident in the UK about 2 years and got my ...

Permanent Residence

If permanent residence is automatically acquired after exercising free movement rights in the UK for a continuous period of 5 years, why do you need to apply for EEA4?

Is it similar to a residence card being optional in theory but actually required in order to prove your right work?

Casa,

If you have a 5 year EEA residence card and married to a UK citizen, is it not possible to skip applying for PR and apply directly for UK citizenship?

What is NiNo? Although technically a Residence Card is optional, I would go even further than to say an employer would be "leary" and suggest that no employer (unless the employer is a close friend) would employ someone without a Residence Card. Employers are required to check the employees status a...

I don't believe you actually require a family permit or any other document, other than your passport to re-enter the UK as an american.

Re: Supporting docs for EEA2 application

I don't have it yet...just been told by the HO that they will be issuing it.

Again, I'd fill out all relevant info and supply all relevant supporting docs even though the form IMHO clearly states not to. The HO can't reject your application for giving them more info.

Re: Supporting docs for EEA2 application

Take a look at my thread reapply or reconsideration.

I would tick the box and fill out the section and supply them with any relevant supporting documents.

I'd write more, but I'm on my phone and it's all in the thread. Do a search for posts by me.
