Name and picture of each member state's Residence Card

Post by Directive/2004/38/EC » Wed Jul 20, 2011 8:01 pm

In Ireland it is called 4EUFam and the words "Residence Card" is not explicitly mentioned.

Any chance we can collect at least the names, if not sanitized images of Residence Cards from all member states?

Germany: "Residence card for family members of a union citizen or a citizen of an EEA state" and "Residence permit for a citizen of the Swiss Confederation and their family members who are not citizens of the Swiss Confederation"

Image

Austria: "Residence card" and on the backside "Residence card for (family) members of an EEA citizen or Swiss citizen", see list (first page, bottom).

This page hosts many example but also seems incomplete regards EEA residence documents.

Swiss example:

Image

The whole thing is on paper, really huge hence totally unpractical.

The only difference between the EU-citizen´s permit and the family-member´s permit are the words I marked in red:

EU-Citizen´s permit: "allows working" (only)
Family-member´s permit: "Joining the family, allows working", the address is marked as "c/o".

FamilyMembers of Swiss Citizens get a different credit card sized plastic residence permit, which is only valid for 1 year.

I´d LOVE to know why family-members of CH-citizens get the different card. From experience I can say that it´s quite difficult to travel with the above paper, since most borderguards suspect that this is not a valid Schengen-residence permit. (Flying from Beirut to Prague with above paper was quite an adventure, we were nearly denied boarding in Beirut...)

Belgian example:

Image

This card is the coolest ever, since the only difference to a national Belgian ID is the heading "Carte F" vs. "Identity Card" & the line "Carte de séjour de membre de la famille..."

We successfully entered Gibraltar with this card, flashing my "national ID" and my wife´s "Carte F" just after each other. The borderguard just waved us through.

I wish to try to enter the UK with this, but since my wife is naturalised by now we don´t have above card anymore...

Wow, so they're all completely different! My husband has one for France which is again different to the rest, shouldn't they all look the same? Don't have access to a scanner at the moment to put it on here, will try to at some point.

A UK issued Residence Card looks like Image.

It is a passport vignette sticker. If UKBA has the passport, it will put the vignette into the passport. If they do not have the passport, they will put the vignette onto an A4-sized piece of paper called a "Immigration Status Document".

UK Permanent Residence Card of a Family Member of an EEA National

You say "problem", how do you mean? If this is your PR sticker, have you found it 'tricky' at the UK borders or otherwise?

The uncertainty (problem?) comes when you consider whether the holder is allowed visa free travel in the rest of the EU.

Specifically most embassy web sites talk about no visa for holders of a Residence Card that mentions "family member of an EU citizen" (which this card does NOT say!)

Just came across this topic and would be very grateful for clarification of a few things. I do realise it is quite an old post but still giving it a go.

I have got one of these:

I would greatly appreciate input from everyone. My questions are as follows:

1. When did you, acme4242, receive your PR Card? Meaning is it recent; is this what I can expect to receive if I apply soon?

2. Am I right in assuming the "Document Renewal Date" is 10 years after the date of issue?

3. Has it always been 10 years endorsement for Non-EEA family members of EEA nationals? Or has it been changed recently?

4. What happens after the 10 years is over, I mean, what next?

5. Will or can this be revoked if you split up from your EEA national spouse or they leave the UK?

A big thank you in advance to anyone who takes the time out to reply.

1. will be issued within six months of applying.
2. yes
3. It should be automatically re-issued, but in the UK you'll have to apply again.
4. As above.
5. No.

Also, you may consider applying for British citizenship later.
