My wife is filling our her EEa FP and on the EEA National page there is this question "what is your permanent residential address and contact details" my question is who's address do we put there the EEA'S national address or my wife address. Also what should be put for the following question. Thank you
The page refers elsewhere to "the EEA national" in the third person. One is therefore tempted to conclude that the second person ("you") refers to the applicant.
However, I used this form a little over a year ago, and I remember that it's truly awful. If I recall correctly, there are places where "you" is clearly used (improperly, in my opinion) to refer to the EEA national. It is also difficult to give too much credence to grammar-based arguments regarding an application that asks ungrammatical questions like
- What is your permanent residential address and contact details?
- Are your correspondence address different ... ?
- Does EEA national currently living in UK?
When I filled out this form, I resolved several ambiguities by making reference to the paper form: https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/270530/vaf5.pdf.
That form asks for contact details for the EEA national, including permanent home address and correspondence address. This supports the conclusion that the page you are asking about seeks that information as well.
If there's no other place in the online application that seeks the EEA national's address, then I would conclude that the screen you show implements section 8.3 of the paper application, and you should enter the EEA national's address.
In the unlikely event that you want to take time to be a test case, you can fill it out with the applicant's address. Take a screen shot of the page with the applicant's information. Submit that with your application to show that you had reason to believe that you were being asked for the applicant's address.
