I'm an extended family member of an EEA national (Italy). We are partners, we currently live together in Uruguay with our son.
She's accepting a job offer in the UK and we are relocating. My son is an EEA national so there is no problem for him. We are all traveling together.
I'm applying for a Family Permit, but in the process i have to deliver my partner's Italian passport to prove she is an EEA national. The thing is, if the Family Permit takes long she can't travel, at least not as an EEA national, and she can get in trouble with the company that's hiring her, even lose the opportunity.
As I understand I could deliver a certified copy of her passport and my son's passport instead of the real ones. Is this correct?
If this is correct, does anyone have any idea, what does a certified copy of her passport mean? How and where do you usually get it?
