  • LAWYER RESPONSE Proving Residency at UKVCAS for New Family Permit Holder

    I am a US citizen living and working on the US, and my husband (EU citizen with pre-settled status) lives and works in the UK. I have just obtained my EU Settlement Scheme family permit, that is not stamped yet, as I have not yet entered the UK territory with it.

    I have my appointment with UKVCAS to give my biometrics as part of my pre-SS application. Concerning the proof of residence asked: I know I need to provide ‘one document dated in the last 6 months.’

    I will enter the UK on September 2, and will get my family visa stamped. I want to use it as proof of residence for my appointment on September 4.

    My questions are:

    -Will I be able to use this stamped family visa as proof of residence if I entered the country 2 days before my appt, or do I need to leave the country and come back before being able to use it at a proof of residence?

    -If I cannot use my family visa, would proofs of a recent trip to the UK in the past 6 months on a tourist visa work?

    Thank you!

    Gabriella B (lawyer) Would they be able to use the stamped family permit as evidence of residence, possibly with their boarding pass? Am I right in saying they don't need to leave the country and come back?

      I think boarding pass and stamped FP should be ok, what they ask is a proof of address if you have any. I don’t understand why you think you should leave the country and come back, can you please explain because I fear I misunderstood your question.
