The UK has recently amended its rules to make life more difficult for dual national Brits. There is no real implication for you given that your wife has ILR in any case. Her residence card will allow her to travel visa free. Thanks a lot, very happy now! For info, we applied with my UK passport. I ...

Thanks very much. My wife got ILR from the Border Agency in Croydon on the basis of marriage to me in 2009; we have just been given the `European` residency card (family member) in the last couple of weeks.

You need to do more research or take professional advice. Absolutely nothing in the very little information you have given indicates that this individual would qualify for settlement in the UK. Thank-you; I will do more research. As you said that there are 'absolutely' no grounds, do you know what ...

Hi themightywhites, I´m not particularly firm in UK procedures, but I know that they do not like 2004/38/EC, and somehow wish they never signed this paper.
