Default EEA2 application

Hello,

We have recently moved to the UK for my husband's work. I am Australian and my husband is French. We have two children (one has both French and Australian passports, and the other has only an Australian passport).

My husband moved to the UK first and we joined him after getting an EEA family permit in France. We are now looking to apply for a residence card in the UK based on my husband's work. I understand that this is the EEA2 application.

Do we also need to fill in the EEA1 application? I have looked at both forms and they appear very similar. I am not sure why my husband would need a registration certificate.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Jrge will soon reply but the answer is No, your husband doesn't have to apply for residence certificate on EEA1. Just complete EEA2.

Welcome to the Forum!

Your husband doesn't need to apply for a Residence Certificate. However, most of the EEA2 applications I have sent without the corresponding EEA1 application, have taken a bit longer to be dealt with. Coincidence? Perhaps!

Thanks for your prompt reply!

I have some further questions about the EEA1 form.

Is my husband (EEA national) both the applicant (Section 1) and the EEA national exercising treaty rights (Section 3)? We are in the UK due to his work.

I guess I would need to include one of my daughters (who has French nationality) on the EEA1 form in Section 2 (family members). Would I need to submit passport photos and ID/passport for both my husband and daughter? I hope an ID card is sufficient for my husband as he may need to travel for work.

My other daughter and I would be included on the EEA2 form as we both only have Australian nationality.

Is it ok to include only one copy of the documentation, ie marriage certificate, employment contract, for both applications?

Thanks again for your assistance!

You do need to include your husband's passport and yes, you can include copies of the proper supporting documents. Send all the applications all at once using the same envelope.

Hello Joppa and Jrge,

I wanted to thank you for your help and let you know that I have received my resident card within 10 weeks. I took your advice and applied for both EEA1 and EEA2. Here are some more details which may help other forum users:

16/1/13: EEA1 and EEA2 applications sent
17/1/13: Applications received by UKBA
12/2/13: Passport for European national returned with registration certificate (just under 3 weeks)
28/3/13: Passport for non European national with resident card (10 weeks)

I did not receive a Confirmation of Application however I knew that my application had been received and that I had provided sufficient evidence for my application when my husband's passport was returned with the registration certificate.

Supporting documents:
- Marriage certificate
- Birth certificate (of children)
- 3 x wage slips of European national
- Letter from employer confirming employment
- Council tax notice
- Bank statement
- Utility bill

Thanks again for your help and good luck to all of the other applicants!

Hi.

I have already sent my EEA2 application 2 weeks ago. Can my EU sponsor send her EEA1 as well separately ?

Thank you
