Good question.nemerkh wrote:I posted a question in the referendum section but this section might be more appropriate. Have been in the uk for 9 years, on our 2nd eea1/2 now till 2017.
Question is, oir first eea3/4 was refused due to lack if self employnent evidence, what dies that make of our first 5yrs in the UK by law, were we legally residing in the UK from 2007-2012 on eea1/2? Thanks
An individual may lose their right to reside and be subject to administrative removal if they cease to exercise a Treaty right
Ref https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/s ... val-v2.pdfThe family member of an EEA national may lose their entitlement to an extended right to reside in the UK, and be subject to administrative removal, if the EEA national ceases to exercise a Treaty right, or if the individual ceases to be a family member of the EEA national
A RC is not a 'visa'.nemerkh wrote:Thank you for the reply. However legally, obviously we got the eea1/2 initially on the basis of self employment, nothing changed for the first 5 years until they told us we were under the economical threshold of 70£/week. We then got a csi and reapplied for another eea1/2. Thats quite confusing.
