Customer Question

1/ Is there a law in the UK which makes it illegal mailing passports accross the border?

I plan to send my Russian passport to an immigration consultant in London so that he could apply for a residence card on my behalf. I've been admitted to the UK on EEA Entry Clearance but I travel a lot and I'm in Italy now, for a 4-weeks trip.

2/ Is there a regulation which mandates that applications for residence card may only be done while the applicant is in the UK?

Relist: Inaccurate answer.
The answer shows that the anonimous "expert" has absolutely no knowledge about the process he's proving the advice on.

EXAMPLE: He's guessing "There is no guarantee that the Border agency will deal with the application and return your passport within 4 weeks." whereas all pros who handle such applications know that the processing time is 6-8 months and cannot be 4 weeks.

EXAMPLE 2: His "In any event how are you going to return to the UK without a passport?" shows that he's unaware that Border Agency returns passports upon verifying the identity of the applicant, if that's requested.

In light of it, his opinion about unreferenced rule of the Border Agency is not credible.

Oveall, he ignored my question #1 and provided a common sense advice ("Why can you not wait until you return to the UK?"), and not a legal advice.

The answer was not acceptable and I was promised a new one. A week later, I received no response. Today I had to seek alternative source of information, so no answer is needed.

Best regards,
