This is incorrect. Better to understand McCarthy before saying things like this.nonspecifics wrote:If he is also a British citizen who has dual Irish nationality, UKBA may say he comes under the McCarthy legal ruling.
In other words, the way EU law looks at it is that he may not be exercising Treaty Rights when he comes to the UK; he is a British citizen ( who also happens to have Irish citizenship) returning to Britain, so the EU Directive does not apply - unless he was exercising Treaty Rights by working ( as an example) in another EEA country before returning to the UK.
Not to mention how politically and historically unsound it is to place Dublin in the UK , how would this policy of using the passport naitonality work for other British citizens born abroad? Does the registry office also end up recording people as being born in "Lahore, UK" or "Kalamazoo, UK"?Cocoa wrote:In the registry office they recorded his place of birth as 'Dublin, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland' instead of just 'Dublin' or 'Dublin, Ireland'. I pointed out before the marriage ceremony that his place of birth was technically wrong but they told me they had to use the country name from the passport he used to enter the country.
How long did it take to get your EEA FP?Cocoa wrote:Hello, I just got my EEA Family Permit, many thanks for all your help!
I will fly to the UK in November but I'm not sure if once at Passport Control I have to queue in the 'European Passport' line or in the 'Other Passports' line (I am Mexican). As far as I am concerned I don't have to fill in a landing card and my passport shouldn't be stamped because I will be holding a EEA Family Permit, is this right?
