Re: Uk citizen moving to ireland with non eu spouse (split)

Thanks for all the info and useful links JAJ, that has helped a lot. If we go to Ireland or some other part of Europe we have already planned that it could be a long haul, It's also a lot-lot closer to the UK. The reason we thought about going with an agent, or company that specialises in guiding on...

Re: Uk citizen moving to ireland with non eu spouse (split)

I actually don't mind if I settle in Ireland or the UK, my great grandfather was from County Tyrone. And as a kid I visited relatives in Ireland. We made an application for a spouse visa about 7 years ago, they said some documents were not presented and refused it, even my local MP wrote and asked t...

Re: Uk citizen moving to ireland with non eu spouse (split)

Thank you for that info. We had thought about France or Holland but, as I went through this site I realised Ireland could be a good option, our 3 children would be able to cope with the language easier rather than have to learn a new one for school etc. They already speak 2 languages fluently and le...

Re: Uk citizen moving to ireland with non eu spouse (split)

Sorry, I didn't mention it, but I haven't been back to the UK for 4 years now, we were in France 5 years ago with the spouse visa for an EU citizen as I had some work in Compiegne , but at that time we decided to go back to Indonesia as I also had work there. Now my wife has renewed her Schengen visa.

Re: Uk citizen moving to ireland with non eu spouse (split)

It's a Schengen visa. First port of call is France.

I kind of guessed it wouldn't be possible.

Congrats Sraqai, I guess you are trying to settle in Paris? Or a suburb close to it? It might be so, why don't you try renting in a smaller town? Rental agreements are easy to secure and the market are always less competitive . We have tried everything. Anyone who is interested in renting to us, wa...

they say the amount to live on per week is 1061 euro per month, so not so bad :) What exactly does this mean? Is this the money they will be giving you per month? No, it is the amount of money I see on a web site that France recommends a couple should have to live on per month, it goes up with the ...

We have already started looking into the french laws, and how we need to approach the prefecture or marie depending on where we will live! also how the process might work out. Length of time, problems etc. At least things are moving along and giving some hope, and they say the amount to live on per ...

Some place where you can eat lots of croissant is very fine! I worked in Compiegne about 12 years ago, and loved to visit the bakery.. delicious. I will be keeping every scrap of paper, at the moment our plan is to only visit the UK, I would prefer we stay elsewhere in Europe until my wife's status...

http://www.decathlon.com/ is a low cost place to buy winter clothing when you arrive in France, if you are close to one. Simple but cheap. I would try to make France work for you. Maybe you can settle there and really enjoy it. Or maybe not. But give it a go. You will need to work in France in orde...

Given the exit controls in Indonesia, and the proclivity of immigration staff to want "facilitation money", this was probably a remarkably enlightened move to suggest issuing the Schengen visa to the children. Wow! I am hoping that as long as all the paperwork is correct then the Indonesian immigra...

I don't know the peculiarities of Indonesian immigration, but for the carrier, they will should only be interested in whether the passenger is documented correctly for entry to their final destination (and any transit points); and they would be given that they have UK passports.

Exactly, this is what I had done before when bringing my children to the UK, I used their Indonesian passports to exit Indonesia and their UK ones to enter the UK I don't see any real difference between then and now.

Did you apply for the children too? Can you ask him why he suggests the children enter on the Indonesian passport? I suspect he needed to meet a quote to issue more visas, and the kids are easy to justify approvals. Yes I put in for the kids as he suggested, I guess I just think it is easier to pla...

Being able to speak French will be a huge asset for you and yours, but will not affect the application. The British children are not required to have visas (this is forbidden in fact). You have three months grace before you need to have exercised treaty rights in another EU country (this being a wo...

Re: Future problems

I will do, but I am still confused as to why the passport will go to belgium, I am not sure if it because they process them there or something!
