I am an Italian full time uni student in the UK and I want my father and sister to visit me here (They are non-eea nationals, but in possession of an indefinite leave to remain in Italy)
They have requested for an EEA Family permit as my family members but it has been refused because they do not qualify as such. Now they are preparing another application, and this time as my extended family members and I have a few questions in regards to that:
One of the qualifying criterias of an "extended family member" is proving that they are members of my household, is a Family Status certificate enough to prove that?
Would you advice mentioning the regulation that makes them qualify as extended family members, to further validate their application?
Are copies of my bank statements and european health insurance card enough proof of self-sufficiency (so, not dependent on public funds)?
My tuition fee is funded by the UK government (tuition fee loan), is that a form of dependency on public funds?
