She will of course have her passport, but the UK RC in it will be expired by then. So there is no proof in her passport that she is still "legal" in the UK. Based on that they would usually refuse a Visa. The only proof of her being legal we will be able to provide is the COA from the UKBA. I know w...

They don't check at the Airport, but don't try to get into the Republic by Bus (and possible train).

It's not this easy in Germany, as there is no full right of "free movement" for your wife in germany yet. Germany has implemented restrictions on members of the new EU states that will only be lifted in 2011. Till then she will still need a job and a work permit before you would be allowed to move t...

TBH, I find 26K very tight for a family with 1 child in Dublin, especially considering that taxes might well go up by quite a bit in January. 26K before tax would be roughly 1850 euro a month net. Add 180 or so child benefit and you have just above 2000 Euro a month. A 2BR Apartment in a semi decent...

In Germany a simple invitation letter is not enough. For Visa Invitation Purposes you need to get an official formal obligation form "Verpflichtungserklärung" from the local City Hall (Einwohnermeldeamt). Depending on the city hall you will need to bring work contract, 3 payslips, lease (to show yo...

A few years back it took between 8 and 10 weeks for a tourist Visa. AFAIK the reason is that most applications are not handled by the embassies themself, but are decided on by the Visa Office in Dublin. So the embassies send the applications to Dublin and they are then centrally worked on there. aft...

He is German, and that makes the whole thing just very complicated in both countries, as it involves a lot more paperwork then for example getting married in the UK. It would involve loads of Paperwork, that would need several translations, official certification by the embassies, involvement of the...

EEA2 - Change of address - Do I have to inform Home Office?

Hi,

my wife has had her EEA2 Residence Permit for 2 years now. We will now be moving for the first time since she received it.

Do we have to inform the Home Office? If so, how does it have to be done? Can I just call them or do I have to use a specific form?

Regards,

WE didn't provide any documents.

All we sent was the filled Application Form, a passport picture, our marriage certificate, a prepaid return envelope and our passports.

No further documents are required for spouses of EU citizens.
