Article 5(2) and (4) of Directive 2004/38/EC. My understanding, however, is that France excludes their own citizens from this rule.

Re: May this work out ? Advise needed please

I wonder how can I show active residence in Spain while I'm still in the UK ! How can you if you do not live there? You would need to find out what 'residence' means in Spanish law. Under EEA law residence is broken if absences are longer than six months (the are some exceptions for important reaso...

Northern Ireland is part of the UK so you can enter England or Scotland without crossing national borders.

Your parents will need to show that their own income is so low that they need your support to meet their essential needs.

Where are your parents living at the moment? How are they dependent on you? You could also try a family visitor visa but that obviously depends on how realistic that would be for them.

They could also have interviewed you as their guidance suggest. Instead some embassies appear to insinuate a sham marriage by default. You will find similar stories in this forum.

You could also appeal or directly contact the entrance clearance manager (who would also have to look into it if you appealed) including the document you have linked to. You could also complain directly to the UKBA. Finally, you could contact SOLVIT Germany. The fastest way may be to reapply with a ...

Your COA for EEA2 application should suffice to prove to employers that you are lawfully resident and can work in the UK. I think there is a link somewhere on UKBA website stating this as well. That's right but the CoA mentions that it would only be valid for six months which probably makes it as c...

Generally, the Schengen rules only allow you to stay 90 days per half year. However, there may be older, bilateral agreements in place which still limit the stay to two times three months per year but without specifying how long the gap between those two chunks should be (so could be just one day). ...

You don't quite say on what basis you have entered "visa-free". Is that because of your nationality? If yes, what is it?

Yes, you can apply directly but consider that your application will fail if the naturalisation team cannot establish that you indeed have obtained PR. It may be safer to have PR confirmed beforehand as the PR application is for free.

A permanent residence card does not mention 'family member' anymore because permanent residence is a right obtained independent of the EEA family member. PR card holders should be able to travel with the same rights (page 91) as holders of ordinary residence card.

EEA rights derive from facts and not documents. As soon as you are married and provided the marriage is genuine you are a family member and thus covered by EEA regulations whether you have some piece of paper documenting that fact or not.

It is not issued by the EU but by the UKBA. You could only travel visa free if you accompanied your EU spouse or if you joined here at a later date. Some member states may allow you travel alone.

A residence card is not a visa at all. It may seem nit-picking to not call it a visa but the crucial point is that the EEA route is entirely different and thus the RC is not a "spouse visa". On the EEA route you would also obtain permanent residence (automatically) rather than ILR even though the en...

What you obviously have is a residence card and not a permit or a visa. I think you already got sound advice in your other thread . You do not have to but you can. There is no transfer for residence cards as such but you would have to make a fresh application. Please do not open multiple threads on ...
