Are you sure that your visa is valid until sept. 08? So far I haven't seen an Irish Visa that was valid for more then 3 months.

The EEA1 is the residence Permit application for an EU citizen. This is not really required to have or do, and most people probably wouldn't apply for it. The EEA1 application has a processing time of roughly 6 to 8 weeks. The EEA2 application is for the Non-EU Spouse, and has a processing time of a...

Irish EU1 vs. UK EEA1 - The way it should be done...

Hello together, as some might know me and my wife were one of the affected couples of the Irish EU1 fiasco. I had been living in Ireland for more then six years, and married my non-EUwife after a five year (proven) relationship in June 2006. We had applied for residency for my wife via the EU1 form ...

just as a sidenote...you don't necessarily need the passport for the National Insurance number, but it might help. They have a way to verify it directly with the home Office. My wife applied just with our lease, a household bill, the letter from the home office and some proof that she had applied fo...

I leave the House at around 5.40 to be at work at 7 and leave at 3.30 to be home before 5. Th...

And with the big difference that in the UK the NON-EU spouse is allowed to work from the day you arrive with your EU spouse, and in Ireland only after they approved your application, which takes anything between 6 and 9 months, it seems.

I would recommend to leave Ireland asap, before they get wind of the fact that you are illegal. There are no exit controls in Ireland so nobody will ever know that you overstayed in Ireland. Then I would recommend that you apply for the EEA Family Permit in Egypt, which shouldn't be much of a proble...

Why didn't you just request your husbands passport back a few weeks ago? That will not have any effect on your husbands EEA2 application.

I think it depends which Schengen Country you go to. Some countries are changing the requirements for spouses of EU citizens. I know for example that spouses of EU citizens who are legally residing in Ireland, and have the Stamp 4 Residency (Spouse of a EU citizen) do not need a visa to enter german...

We appealed end of March/beginning of April, and haven't heard a word from them so far. We even sent another registered letter a month ago to ask for an update, but haven't heard anything either. We now cancelled our pending application, as we moved to Northern Ireland. I asked them to confirm this....

I went that route. We moved up last month after being fed up with our situation in Ireland. I (EU citizen) am still employed in Ireland, and can work from home two days a week. That way the driving won't drive me mad. We applied for the EEA1 and EEA2 3 weeks ago, and my wife (non-EU) already has sta...

Yes, it states that you are allowed to work, confirms that your passport is with them, asks you not to disturb them while they are processing your application :lol: and give you a hotline number that can be called by any employers if they need any verification on your status.

I guess it depends what you do for a living. My wife has a Master Degree as well, and companies were just not willing to get into anything work permit related. Even when she explained that was entitled to one, and that it would be fast-tracked and be free of charge they were unwilling to go with it....
