There does not appear to be any authority to limit card's validity to the validity of the passport.The residence card provided for by Article 10(1) shall be valid for five years from the date of issue or for the envisaged period of residence of the Union citizen, if this period is less than five years.
Let's say I plan to live in the state with my EU family member for the foreseeable future and I have six months' validity remaining on my passport. I would expect my residence card to be valid for the next five years. If the Irish authorities limited it to the validity of my passport, I would complain.a valid passport
This is not logical at all to me.agniukas wrote:well, if your passport expires in the next six month, for example, you get the stamp in your passport for the 6 months, and when you renew your passport, you will get the the remainder 4 years and 6 months stamp placed in your new passport.
think of it this way, your passport expired. you still have to get a new one... and you still want your stamp to be placed in your new passport...
your old passport is expired thus invalid. Therefore, any visas and permission endorsments in your old passport are no longer valid...
Logical, isn't it...
When you are granted permission to remain under Eu treaty rights, your permission letter from the department states that you have your permission for 5 years. so you are still going to get it, just in installments if your passport expires within that time.
