Some new Policy Notices have emerged thanks to the Freedom of movement in the EU blog. They cover disclosure of notes taken in marriage interviews, further confirmation that EU law application forms are optional, updates to the Modernised Guidance on various EU law issues and on Comprehensive Sickness Insurance.

Most mind-numbingly astonishing bit:

The policy team have undertaken a substantive review of all in-country EEA application forms with the objective of making the forms simpler in terms of evidential requirements and more user-friendly.

The outcome is the 137 page EEA(FM) application form. Someone is having a laugh. I’d hate to see one of these civil servants go out of their way to make things harder. It also says the out of country forms are due to receive the same treatment soon.
