EEA4 application and travel

Is the sponsor an EU/EEA or Swiss national ? To what extent is freedom of movement still restricted for same-sex couples in the EU ? Do you have experience of immigration bureaucracy in other European countries ? Please also visit EU/EEA page in the main website

EEA4 application and travel

Post by Ed » Sat Sep 12, 2015 12:12 am


I'm about to apply for a non eea PR this October after 5 years on EEA2 RC. Anyone would know from past experience that once I have submitted all documents including my passport and EEA2 RC, could I request my passport back after I have I have received my COA? The reason being business travel.

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Hi Ed,
I applied for EEA4 on 13th May 2015 but soon after receiving letter of confirmation of receipt of documents I requested my passport back and I have it with me and I have been traveling in and out of the UK since then just bear in mind if your previous visa expired during this time you will have to apply for entry clearance but if you have a valid visa during this time there should not be any problem as per my personal experience.
hope it was helpful.

Hi Ed, any news on your application? And does anyone else know the current timeline for an EEA PR application?
