Hi, I sent out the EEA1 + EEA2 application for me and my

This answer was rated:


I sent out the EEA1 + EEA2 application for me and my wife on January 31st!
We moved now to a new apartment on February 6th!

I wrote a letter regarding our addresses (stating current address at the time + new address starting Feb 6th) and included it within the application. ALSO, I put the new address down under:

1.17 Name and address in the UK for all correspondence about your application if different from 1.13

to let them know about it too.

Do you think I should still send out a letter now, informing them about the change of address, or is the above mentioned enough!?

Did you explain in your covering letter that you would be changing your address?

If so, what letter do you think you should write now? I'm a bit confused on this point.

I made bad experience with changes of addresses in America, so I was thinking sending out the change of address via online form of the UKBA website, just to make sure, that they have the right address in there system, and completely ditch the old one for correspondence!


But its probably overkill. I did explain everything precisely in the letter I sent alongside the application!


Thanks for your patience.

If you have explained about the change of address in your covering letter that you submitted with the actual application then this will be fine.

I am sure that you are just worrying, but if you have given the necessary details in the original letter then really there is no need to follow up with another letter. They will have to marry it up with the application as well and then cross check it with the application , so it may actually increase the time it takes for them to approve the application.

You will be fine, just be patent.
