Hi,

You need to include yours and your wife's bank statement to show proof of residence. The fact that you and your wife are staying with your brother, free of charge, doesn't mean anything. It would only show proof of residence.

Provided they can meet the EU general guidance of resolution within 6 months, I don't think they are too concerned about lengthening queues. They were going to offer chargeable same-day premium service, like other types of applications, but it seems to have been quietly dropped because of possible conflict with EU rules.
Most applicants are in fact successful, it's just that it takes a long time to get your residence card!
Dear Joopa,

This is Vijay from Glasgow. Hats off for your patience and help to all the members. Sorry for taking your time today. I have few questions which are bothering me.. and couldnt kinda find definite answers.

I am applying for EEA2 application soon ( when I am confident with all the documentation needed).

Well my case, I am the non EEA and my wife EEA nationals respectively.
I am a PhD student and also work part time. My wife also a student but not working presently. she was working part time till june and now again looking for some part time jobs now.

my questions: ( sorry some of them might be repeated in the forums but i am bit worried if it applies in my case or not)

1) Comprehensive Sickness Insurance : is it supposed to be covering both me and my wife? and if we work part time do we still need Comprehensive Sickness Insurance, as we are students?

1a) Also, one possibility is we might go to some EU state for my postdoc position in 1 year time.. if its the case is Comprehensive Sickness Insurance required or just my wife can get the EHIC card from NHS and in that case do I need to be on that card or do i still need to get this CSI ?

2) My wife she presently do not work. but gets funding from SAAS. can this be used as proof of income along with my salary slips? or is it better to find a part time and show that as income proof?

3)How much money is treated as sufficient for students? basically what is the minimum we need to earn/ sufficient to support or application? do we need to show any savings?

4) can we apply both the EEA1 and EEA2 applications together? as my wife never bothered to do registration before. She was here for more than 5 years.

5) My wife is 21years this December. dose it matter if she is below 21 as of now for EEA2 application as sponsor ?

Thank you very much for your help and advise in advance.


Kind regards,

Vijay Kuppili

Default EEA Family Permit Soon to Expire

Hi,

I am glad finding expatforum, as I failed to get in touch with the Home Office. I would be very thankful if somebody can ease on my anxiety.


My situation:

My wife stays in the UK with an EEA Family Permit which will expire 28th Sept. She applied for a residence card at 07th Aug. Nothing arrived yet. We didn't receive a certificate of application (first time I heard about it). The Post Office, Track and Trace says the letter has been delivered. I also support her application with a registration card.

So my question is evident: what will happen now? The permit soon expires and no passport to leave the country and return to Hungary.
I just heard today that she can stay in the UK until the documents arrive back, but she cannot work. Is this true?

Thanks for any information!

Have a good night! Bye,

Peter

First, she does have rights under EU rules to live and work in UK regardless of any documentation. Now it's much better to have a documentary proof of her rights, for entering UK, for getting a job etc.

You can phone the following number and ask for her certificate of application: 0845 010 5200. The letter may state she can work.

If she needs to travel, you can request the return of her passport without losing her place in the application queue. Follow instructions under 'More information' on UK Border Agency | How to apply for residence documents as the non-EEA family member of an EEA national

She can either apply for another EEA family permit before returning to UK, or show at the UK border her certificate of application and other evidence of her status under EU rules, such as your passport (if travelling together), marriage certificate and your proof of employment and bank statement - basically the same documents she has submitted for EEA2 application.

Thank You Joppa for the fast answer.

We would like to stay and work in the UK if it is possible. Leave the country is the worst case scenario. We have permanent jobs which we like to continue. We work for an agency and there our consultant told he thinks she can stay in the UK but can't work. So it is good to show some evidence that she can continue her work. I have to get that certificate of application. I had tried to phone them on the number you gave many times, but never reached a real person. I will continue disturbing them.

Are You sure she has rights to live and work in the UK regardless of any documentation? She is a Nepalese citizen and stayed in Hungary with a 5years long settlement card as my wife. I read somewhere that UK is not in the Schengen area so she needs a visa to visit, stay and work. I also had to signature a statement at her EEA F. P. application that she can enter and leave the UK only with my company.
Enjoy this nice sunny Saturday!


Cheers:

Peter

Hi,

As per Directive 2004/38/EC, your wife doesn't even need to have a RC to live and work in the UK. However:

"Do you need to apply?
You do not need to obtain documents confirming your right of residence in the UK if you are a family member of an EEA national.

However, you may be inconvenienced if you do not obtain this confirmation, as:

* You may have difficulty proving that you are lawfully resident in the UK;
* If you leave the UK, you will usually need to obtain an EEA family permit before returning here, in order to guarantee readmission as the family member of a qualified EEA national; and
* You may find it difficult to obtain or change employment."

TAKEN FROM:
UK Border Agency | Residence documents for non-EEA family members of EEA nationals

She can print this and show it to her employer - without bad intend of course-, and you, the sponsor, need to send a kind e-mail to the Euro Case Workers in Liverpool, expressing your concerns about the possibility of your wife losing her job.

Please keep in mind that the UK has finally decided to put a stop to abusers and cheaters. Hence, now all of us - non EU citizens- are subject to extra scrutiny.

Animo
(Cheers)

Hello, and thank you again to this amazing forum. You helped me through the first process of EEA family Permit. Now I'm also beginning the second process.

But, like everyone else here, I am full of little uncertainties.

1) I assume EEA 1 is the entry clearance? (which I have) and the EEA 2 is the residency card application? (which I am about to do) Correct?

2) My validation dates on the visa are 16/3/12 to 16/9/12.... But I arrived late on the 15/6/12...
So should I have applied for EEA2 before the expire date? Or did the 6 months start from my date of arrival? Or dose it not matter either way? Can I still apply for EEA2 residency card when ever I please?

3) Is the process roughly the same as EEA1? Search, Download, Print, Fill out, Get supporting Docs and send off to ...........? And then just wait? Or is it best to go to an immigration office or something like in croydon? (south england)

Sorry for continuing this thread full of questions, but I tell you the only reason this forum exists is because the UKBA themselves are extremely hard to talk to and receive any sort of help from.

Thank you so much for reading and hoping to hear back from some one soon...

Cheers

Oh and also.... some background info.

My girlfriend is Italian living with me in the UK. We are not married. She is working fulltime. Me, self employed part time. Have a rental tenancy together. Bank account together. etc...etc...

Do we need to apply together for EEA2 or it solely based on me? And if I am practicing my rights here correctly? I thought the EEA 1 was the hard work of proving a relationship (guilty until proven innocent).
But would assume the EEA2 is not?

Anyways, blah blah blah....

Thanks again
