Re: Evidence of 5 years continuous residence for EU Settlement Scheme

If I move tomorrow to a new address, then update my address and ask the bank to send me 12 months of statements, they will bear the new address regardless what was my address when the transactions were recorded. I have seen an administration, just last month (not the Home Office), refusing printed ...

Re: Evidence of 5 years continuous residence for EU Settlement Scheme

The annual statements, are they the ones you receive monthly at home or were they printed online or at a branch all in one go? The one you receive at home can serve as proof of address, the one printed a the branch don't. As foreign national you have to be proactive about this kind of documents. Ta...

Re: Schengen visa for UK resident (indian), married to an EEA national?

Hi.. UK is not breaking the treaty and free movement rights because EU settlement scheme is under UK immigration law and not EU immigration law hence you can’t use it to travel freely around Europe. You can still apply for EU residence card if you want to travel freely but it will be invalid in 2020...

Going directly to the embassy normally gets you free service as the family member of an EEA citizen, but the embassies of EEA countries have reduced the number of hours they are accessible directly or have even elim...

Re: SPANISH SCHENGEN VISA FOR NON-EU SPOUSE OF BRITISH CITIZEN WITH LESS THAN 3MONTHS BRP VALIDITY

When they asked you to pay for premium service, what is the actual reason? Is it because you are EU family member? Basically, I got an appointment to VFS in London for Cyprus tourist visa (as a family member of EU citizen) which is I know free but the guy on the phone said that because the appointme...

Re: Not sure if right place for this topic: Travelling to Jersey Channel Island, how strict is the airline?

non EU It’s like travelling to Manchester or Scotland I see. Never done domestic flight before that’s why I’m a bit worried (not travelling with husband, travelling with friends), i hate embarrassing myself so want to be ready. 😞 So the airline staff when you checked in didn’t ask for your passport?
