EEA4 as a dual citizen

Hi there, I've read so many threads on the subject, some of them from a couple of years back and I wanted to get an up to date and concise answer if possible. I'm an Irish/British dual citizen and my partner is Turkish. We applied for the 5 year residency back in 2010 when it seemed less of an issue...

Naturally, I no longer head to border control with the intent of mentioning anything about stamps before the IO takes the passport.. Funnily enough, the last two times we went through have been totally uneventful, not even a single question.. Perhaps that wrote something on their records :D

Yes it was a UKBA issued residence card (the 5 year one) Here is a copy of the letter I received back from the UKBA.. I think I emphasised the fact that I thought I received poor service at the border and my guessing is that that's what triggered the compensation.. Here's the letter I got (via e-mai...

Last year my partner and I travelled to Bruseels via the Eurostar. On the way back we had an officer who seemed to be particularly miserable, asking stupid questions (which one of you is the Turkish one?), most of which I can't remember now but she then stamped my partner's passport.. When I confron...

EEA family permits etc hold no weight when it comes to Turkish visa regulations. Without knowing the nationality of the non EEA citizen involved, I can't tell you whether you'd need a visa or not but nearly everyone who does require a visa can purchase one at the border.. There are exceptions though...

In our experience my partner missed out on a job with a national supermarket chain, simply because they just didn't 'get' the certificate of application and insisted on a passport with residency. He was lucky that an agency 'threw caution to the wind' and was so desperate for people that they photoc...

So I want to get something absolutely straight in my mind.. I'm an Irish citizen and my partner is a Turkish national..

When travelling with my non EEA partner I am also ready to let rip when the IO starts going on about a landing card: 'he doesn't require a landing card or a stamp as he has an EEA family permit' I chant, it usually rings a bell, but if it doesn't, and they get bothersome, I simply demand to see the ...
