I had a great initial meeting with Claudia as Ei and she confirmed that I should be suitable for the new visa as a remote worker. So that's great news - however, when I heard the fees for help with Ei I realised I do not have the funds - especially with the other expenses needed for the application and move. My partner is already in Portugal but is an EU citizen so he glided in. As I am currently doing this on my own, I have been researching and I am clear on what documents I need and am about to try to book an appointment with VFS in London. But there are some details I am stuck on and I would appreciate you help:
1. What documents would need to be notarized? (Guessing it will be similar to D7)
2. I have an annual subscription with the DBS as I have worked with children and vulnerable adults - is a document from the DBS adequate or would I need to go via ACRO
3. As I won't have a rental agreement and will be living with Pierre on the land, he needs to write me a 'Term of responsibility' letter and I wondered how he should word it and if anyone has any examples of a such a letter they would be willing to share?
4. I haven't gathered the documents as yet, as you can see, but should I book the appointment now say, for 4 weeks time? Guessing that they don't have appointments available tomorrow. (London office)
5.Did anyone else apply for their visa without a Ei or another law firm and if so do you have any tips? Or would be willing to zoom chat if easier?
I am so grateful for Migration Mondays and this forum!
