Hi there

Sorry in advance for the long-winded post...

I am about to submit my EEA1+ EEA2 application as unmarried partner (my partner is EEA national) and I have a few questions regarding the supporting documents that I urgently need some advices.

1. Can I highlight/make notes on the bank statements? I want to show that there have been regular transfers between me and my partner, and more importantly that we both pay rents to his sister (who lives with us and is the one paying rents to the landlady).

2. covering letters - I am thinking to prepare 3 covering letters: one from my partner, one from his sister, one from myself. In regards with the covering letter from his sister, mainly it is about to explain the nature of our tenancy agreement, that she is the one who signed the contract and is taking care of all the payments to the landlady. Do we need to explain why there are 3 of us but only her name on the contract? Could it be a negative factor for my application?

3. We start living together since July 2011 but he only changed his address with the bank in October 2011, and we only have both of our names on the council tax bill since October 2011(before that there was only my name). Therefore I am planning to use letters received from NHS (all dated from July 2011) to prove that we’ve been living together since July 2011, is it enough?

4. My partner’s company doesn’t issue paper payslips so he haS got a “proof of salary”, which has the start date of his contract, type of contract, annual salary and it’s printed on the headed letter. I also enclose a certified copy of his pass (he needs the pass for work so i cannot give the original). Will it be enough to prove that he is exercising his treaty right?

And finally here is my list of supporting documents, I will be extremely grateful if anyone finds that I missed something.

- council tax bill (since October 2011)
- joint bank account statement (opened in August 2013)
- mine and my partner’s bank statement
- My partner’s proof of salary and certified copy of his pass
- a collection of our pictures
- covering letters (one from my partner, one from his sister and one from myself)
- NHS letter and medical certificate, showing we lived under the same address.


Thank you for taking your time reading this post and thank you for any advice given!

Sorry I forgot to include one more question:

Do I need to submit my residence permit (PSW) with my application?

Thank you in advance for your help!

My "hunch" is that you need to work a little bit more on proving the romantic aspect of your relationship. Since you are not married, and you have lived together for a couple of months more than two years, you might want to do more work on that part. Such as photos of you, photos of you and other family members and mutual friends, travels you have done together and that sort of thing. You will have to prove beyond doubt that you are in a (romantic) durable relationship.

Thank you for your suggestion. I will include more pictures of us with some friends and me with his family members. Maybe some cards we gave to each other for Birthdays etc?

Don't bother with birthday cards. For all they know, you could have bought them today!

Thank you Joppa. I will save my effort on it then.

Could anyone tell me if I need to send my residence permit with my application? My common sense tells me the answer would be yes. However I would become IDless for possibly 6 months! (or even longer!) So if it's not necessary I would like to keep it with me...

Thanks!
