So Phase 1 aka "Get EEA FP" is complete. My husband got the email today that his visa has been issued. He should have his passport in hand tomorrow. We booked our flights to get to Scotland today!
Now for Phase 2: The EEA FP is only good for 6 months. I'll be studying in the UK for 1 year but we don't plan on staying in Scotland afterwards. I'll likely return to Canada for more school. I obviously want my husband to spend the whole year with me in Scotland. As I understand it, we have 2 options:
1. Apply for EEA2 (although this seems unfavourable since it's a lengthy process and we won't need a permit to stay in the UK for 5 years).
2. Apply for another EEA FP.
Am I missing any options?
Does anyone have any suggestions?
Is there no way to simply extend the EEA FP?
How likely is it for the UKBA to issue my husband 2 consecutive EEA FPs?
How should we go about applying for a second EEA FP if it's a viable option?
Sorry for the blitzkrieg of questions! Any tips or info would be greatly appreciated!
