Re: "Why are you returning to the UK" - trick question?

I see, thanks. I am keeping my job until March, working remotely, then I'll have to find something else, so I can't really claim that. We didn't want to be stranded because of brexit, especially if there is no-deal. Not sure how to word it. Would like to just put "brexit" or "brexit uncertainty" wit...

"Why are you returning to the UK" - trick question?

I see that the Surinder Singh route route settlement scheme form asks why you are returning to the UK. Is this a trick question? Using the Surinder Singh route route it doesn't seem to matter at all why you are returning, legally speaking. If I put "Brexit uncertainty" could that be a problem? Or "F...

Re: Non-EU Spouse UK Settlement question

Yes, so you are not an EEA citizen, and your wife is. So your wife is exercising treaty rights (Freedom of Movement) and you can apply as her spouse I think.

Family members after applying for pre-settled status

The children of non-EU family members can apply to come to the UK under the EU scheme. What happens if the non-EU family member applies for pre-settled status?

In that case can the children still use the EEA route?

Thanks so much.

Re: EEA4 Application 3 months within planned Brexit

I'm no expert but I'd apply for settled status. It seems like the most certain, secure thing to do.

Non-EU spouse and pre-settled status

Hi. My spouse has an Irish residency card, only a few weeks old. She has been living here in Ireland since October. I am a British citizen. If we move back to the UK, can she apply for pre-settled status under the settlement scheme? My understanding is that she is eligible but obviously just wanted ...

Re: Eu Treaty files waiting time - EU1 or EU1A

As long as you have proof that you applied (e.g. a tracking number for the letter) you are okay, even if the temporary stamp on your passport expires. I was told that explicitly by the treaty rights division and the local Garda.

Just hold on, they are very slow I'm afraid.

Re: Eu Treaty files waiting time - EU1 or EU1A

DJ_goodfella, did the acknowledgement letter give you a deadline for a decision?

If you applied in September the deadline should be this month (six months from application).

Re: No answer after further documentation sent

Always worth paying the extra to get a signature on receipt, then you have proof that it was delivered and they can't say they didn't get it. If they lose it or don't process it in time that's their fault.

Re: Bringing spouse over

To exercise treaty rights you either need to be working or show that you are self sufficient, i.e. you have enough money for yourself and your husband without relying on the state for benefits etc.

Re: Procedure for getting Burmese girlfriend settled in Ireland

Basically you need to move over there, for work or if you have sufficient savings and other income to be self sufficient. You can apply for a visitor visa for your GF before you go, as long as you have documentation showing you will exercise treaty rights (e.g. employment letter with start date etc....

Re: Eu Treaty files waiting time - EU1 or EU1A

Got a confirmation letter today. Decision due by 12/05/2019.

They also asked for some documents I had already sent. They even listed them in the list of documents I had already sent. I'll send them again anyway.

Re: Eu Treaty files waiting time - EU1 or EU1A

I just emailed INIS. They sent an automated response stating that acknowledgement letters could take up to 12 weeks and current processing times are 10 months.

My understanding was that the EU rules require a decision in 6 months.

Re: Eu Treaty files waiting time - EU1 or EU1A

Application sent: 04/11/2018
Acknowledgement letter: Not received yet
Approval: Pending

I wrote to them about the lack of an acknowledgement letter, and got no response. I called them and was told it might take a few months to come and that the deadline for a decision was still six months.
