Welcome to immigrationboards.com!
Casa, do you know when we will start to get affected by the new rules? if we go to Ireland for 6 month and the law changes doesnt allow us to go to UK anymore via Surinder Singh route route, can we apply Irish permanent residence ?Casa wrote:This passage from David Cameron's speech last night, suggests that the Surinder Singh route may well be affected:
"And an end to the ridiculous situation where EU nationals can avoid British immigration rules when bringing their families from outside the EU."
Thank you for sharing information)))it helps.Casa wrote:Impossible for anyone to say at this stage. I assume that you would be able to settle permanently in Eire if you continued to exercise your Treaty rights there.
The clarification that will hit the core part from the Surinder Singh judgement is:LilyLalilu wrote:As far as I am aware there is nothing in there regarding Surinder Singh so you should be fine, however, probably good to do Surinder Singh as soon as you can as you never know what may change next in this country
This is being interpreted that the current UK rules on Surinder Singh should not be overturned by the courts. This clarification is due to be issued after the referendum, and, to be honest, I expect it whatever the verdict. I think Denmark and the Netherlands would like it. It may be effective against the 'Belgian route', the Dutch version of Surinder Singh, which also has a Danish version.Member States can address specific cases of abuse of free movement rights by Union citizens returning to their Member State of nationality with a non-EU family member where residence in the host Member State has not been sufficiently genuine to create or strengthen family life and had the purpose of evading the application of national immigration rules.
it mentioned in the article, "People are panicking", it is so true, at least I am panicking!!! Hope things will go well.nemerkh wrote:http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2016 ... t-eu-rules
