Visa refused- appeal or start again

Recommended Posts

Hi.

 

Me and my thai wife apply for EEA visa recently. This week we got negative response. The reason was only one- we do not provided our marriage certificate but WE DID IT. We upload all requirement documents including our both marriage certificates. Now my question is- it is worth to appeal from that decision or we should start application again and if we start it again is necessary to visit VFS by my wife again for taking photo etc?

Visa for what purpose, e.g visit?

 

Which country did you apply to?

 

What is your nationality?

I do not know how long an administrative revue would take, nor what would happen if a decision had not been made before the end of the Brexit transition period on 31/12/20.

 

So, as an EEA family permit is free, after checking to ensure you have included all the required documents, I suggest you simply apply again. Since Brexit there are two types of UK EEA family permit, see Apply for a permit to join your EU or EEA family member in the UK. Make sure she applies for the right one!

 

Have you, yourself applied for settled status in the UK yet? This will effect which permit she applies for.

Purpose- Family permit UK

 

Im Polish national, 5 years in UK

 

I found it is and it not call a appeal it's a Administrative Review. The question is it is worth to do it. 

Well. Since Brexit is on its way and your Polish staying in UK then I see a problem.

UK is opting out of Schengen as i understand it. So my guess is that you didn't apply for the right one

Thanks for concern, we applied for correct type. 

 

One think what bother me is why they didn't notice my marriage certificate. It's the most important document and Im 100% sure I enclose it to our application. I think it was just a mistake from their side.

As they made a mistake in their decision, an appeal/review should produce a positive result - providing that there were no other reasons for refusal.

Sorry you are wrong the UK is not opting out of the Schengen agreement, the United Kingdom has never been part of the Schengen, we rejected it and never joined.
