Re: European citizen to the UK

i was wondering if i actually need a visa to enter and work in the uk as a greek citizen The answer to your question depends on when you are planning to come, to which part of the UK, and for how long. The likeliest answer, as the state of things now, is that no, you don't need a visa, because even...

Re: EU settled status granted date?(towards naturalisation)

Dear NikiGio I am an EU citizen, and would also like to apply for citizenship. I have been in the UK for over 6 years. nady_k - you should really open your own thread, rather than hijacking another user's thread. Then best not to reply on the hijacked topic.

Re: EEA National Traveling Outside EU with BRP Card Husband

I just came across something important to notice, which is probably what you have seen. Even though you can find the following text on the Settlement scheme, you need to read between the lines: https://www.gov.uk/settled-status-eu-citizens-families/what-settled-and-presettled-status-means If you hav...

You can get an electronic visa waiver (EVW) instead of a visa if you are a national of Kuwait, Oman, Qatar or the United Arab Emirates. You must pay £15 for an EVW.

She is also middle eastern, because I'm too.
"Middle eastern" is not a nationality. It's a regional origin. I'm asking for her specific country of origin.

different rules apply to different countries, even within the same region. That's why it's important you specify.

Re: EEA National Traveling Outside EU with BRP Card Husband

Question: I was wondering how long could we travel TOGETHER outside of the UK/EU without any issue? I gather that what you are actually asking here is for how long you can be absent form the UK, without this being considered a gap in your continuous 5 year period needed for Settled Status? If so, t...

Re: Settled status processing times

According to this scheme, all the applications should be processed within days or a maximum of 2 weeks where they need more evidence. Where does it say this? As far as I know, since the scheme is only in its pilot phase, this kind of promised maximum processing times have not yet been released: htt...

Re: Family permit for a visit to the UK.

After digging for a bit, and not finding anything that indicates the contrary, I come to the conclusion that you can indeed apply for a Family Permit just for visiting the UK, on the basis that you are accompanying your husband on a visit, even if he's not residing in the UK. Even though some langua...

Thank you very much for your detailed advise!
One more question... does the EEA/UK Residence card grant me rights to work in UK if I decide to terminate my sponsorship visa?
It grants you the right to work. Full stop.

@Kamoe - because of what you suggested earlier.
Oh sure. But keep in mind that was only a wild guess as to what could be the issue. If it's not, then the husband would probably find himself just as powerless (according to the story they all have the same nationalities).

There's little point in continuing this discussion, when the OP is no longer choosing to respond. :idea: I find value in this forum both in the actual solutions suggested to people's problems, and in the collective discussion that takes place around them.

Re: EEA national not allowed to fly to UK from Portugal

I guess every one should apply for pre or settled status before travelling abroad, or DCPR. Try see if you can apply one of these while you there. Paranoia. Brexit has not even happened, and even if and when it does, EU nationals will still be legally allowed in the UK for short visits, no need for...

Re: Non-EU applications for Settled and Pre-Settled status - Criteria and outcomes

Getting pre settled means no need to submit so many evidence while applying for PR card and obviously it makes life so easier. In our particular case this is a non-issue as we already have RC. And by the above I mean we can simply wait on our RC until we are eligible for Settled Status, why bother ...
