EEA Family Permit procedure

Melon 1

We started the application to get an EEA family permit at the end of September. We hope this information can help some other people who are in the same situation.

  1. First of all, I created an account on “VISA 4 UK”. Had to fill out the online application form with the relevant data and send it, online as well. This procedure was completely free. I received a PDF file and had to print this out to bring to the interview.
  2. We had to prove that our relationship is real. We sent the following documents for this:
    1. Japanese passport
    2. Hungarian ID card (passport is okay as well)
    3. Japanese family register
    4. Hungarian marriage certificate
    5. Photos and letters that can prove our relationship
    6. Bank statements
    7. IELTS and TOEFL certificate
    8. Previous payslips that can prove previous jobs

      We wanted to get some of the documents back, so we also included a copy of them. None of them was a certificated copy, so we signed them like this:

      (Date / Month / Year)
      I Hereby Certify That The Document Has Been Translated From Japanese Into English, And All Information Provided Is True, Correct And Complete.

  3. In the Visa office, they checked all the documents and then took a photo and fingerprints in a separate room.

We can get to know if I could get the Visa only after the passport has arrived. There are two options, to collect it in the office in person or they can send it by post. I chose the latter one but had to pay a fee for it.

We prepared the documents in document holders and worked with it a lot. In the end, it was unnecessary, because they did not take the folder. The point was to give them the papers in two groups: copies and originals.
