Yes, your parent is your sponsor in this context of EU migration.Betty1915 wrote:noajthan wrote:You may have acquired the holy grail of PR as early as 2014 if you had a Union citizen sponsor (parent?) in UK who was a qualified person.
If you are sponsored then your activity in UK is immaterial; (no need for CSI etc etc).
If under 21 at the time you were still a minor (under EU law) so no proof of financial dependency required.
Yes, free movement really is that free and easy.
Thank you for your response.
I am also a little bit confused with the word sponsor. Does this mean that it was the person who took care of me financially? I have undertook my GCSEs and A-Levels in England and throughout those 4 years my parents took care of me. After that, since I am a home based student I got my finances from Student Finance England and my parents had no contribution throughout the Uni years. Also, can I ask what does CSI stands for?
Again, I really appreciate your help.
But at under age 21 you don't need to show financial dependency; just show your relationship to the person, who has to have been a qualified person (ie exercising treaty rights) in UK.
If you lived in UK on that basis at same time as they did (not necessarily co-habiting) then you will have acquired PR via that sponsor.
As a dependent, what you were doing doesn't really matter.
How cool is that.
If no subsequent prolonged absences then you still have PR.
You just need to apply for the card confirming PR.
CSI = comprehensive sickness insurance.
