Hi,

I'm Australian and my partner is Irish. I applied for an EEA Family Permit (as an unmarried partner) from Australia, before we moved to the UK and was issued one.

My family permit runs out at the end of November 2013, and I have applied for a EEA2 residence card in the meantime. I know the UKBA has received my application as I received a letter from them a week after I sent in my application, however, nowhere on the letter did it say anything about my right to work.

My understanding was that as I entered on an EEA Family Permit (hence, already proving our durable relationship) that I would have the right to work stated on my COA. Is this correct? If so, is there any information that I can provide to the UKBA to back up my case?

Would like to start work asap, but considering my family permit is only valid until the end of November, I have a feeling employers won't even consider me until I have a COA stating I have the right to work, or the residence card.

Any help would be appreciated!
