OTS Successful EEA Residence Permit Following Previously Unsucessful Application and Appeal
We successfully assisted a Jordanian national, who had recently married his EU National partner, with applying for a Residence Card. He was wrongly advised by his previous representatives which lead to his applications being refused and significant crdibility and evidencial issues at Appeal.
After our initial consultation a number of evidencial matters were clarified with the client and with our assistance a new set of documents were collate for their new EEA Application to the Home Office.
The Advantages of a Residence Card
If you are a family member of an EEA national, (as our client was), you can apply for a Residence Card. A direct family member, such as a spouse or a child of an EEA national does not have to apply for a Residence Card to stay in the UK; however, it can:
- allow you to re-enter the country more easily on returning from abroad
- prove to employers that you can work in the UK
- help you qualify for certain benefits and services
Further to submitting our client's new EEA Application and without the need for any further legal battles with the Home Office our client was soon provided a Residence Card which will last for five years, after which they will be eligible to apply for a permanent residence Card.
