No. A residence card documents the rights under the very specific conditions laid out in the Directive and related case law. Very specific conditions? Which specific conditions under Article 10 are not also filled by every other EEA Residence permits, except for being issued under Article 10 itself...

You would have to answer why there is the need for two fundamentally different laws if they documented the very same thing? 32 different laws to obtain the same thing surely (French system grants right of residence in an EEA country, UK system grants right of residence to an EEA Country, and 30 oth...

Respectfully, you are again failing to understand that an ILR stamp is not, nor is it related to in any way, the residence card of a family member of a Union citizen referred to in § 10 of the Directive. ILR is issued under the Immigration Rules, not under The Immigration (European Economic Area) ...

napers, your wife's passport, your passport (or National ID card) and your marriage cert is sufficient for entry to France in conformity with Directive 2004/38/EC. That's under 5(4) .

Directive 2004/38/EC, we went to Dover with her passport with an ILR stamp, my passport (British) and in my bag was our UK wedding certificate and a printout of 2004/38 just in case.

The right to enter France in the company of her UK national spouse is derived from their relationship alone and is no way connected with an ILR endorsement in her passport. She has the right, but they can still insist on a visa if she doesn't have the ILR stamp (they'll try to deflect the right to ...

Sten, Are you just visiting France? You know a quick visit on the ferry? As opposed to emigrating? Because my recollection of that certificate authentication is you send off your wedding certificate and a payment and they send it back with a stamp saying its a wedding certificate.... a real pain. Th...
