Re: Are NHS workers on spouse visa also exempt from IHS

Prime Ministerial announcements are not and do not make law. We'll have to see what the Statutory Instrume...

Re: Does my son have to apply for registration before passport?

If your son was born in the UK on or after the date you got ILR, he is a British citizen otherwise than by descent and can apply for a passport directly. At the moment, the Passport Office is only accepting applications from people with a demonstrable need to travel soon, thence the last few questio...

Re: Settled status period Counting HOW????

I'm not a lawyer, but I think the case law that you may be looking for is Macastena vs SSHD , which essentially ruled that a court can't determine whether a person is an EFM, only the Home Office can. What the Court can do is to ask the Home Office to look again at the case, with any requisite legal...

Provided the date of birth of the child is on or after the date on the naturalisation certificate of either parent, the child would be a British citizen by descent if born abroad and can apply for a British passport directly.

Re: Clear guidance for family members post Brexit

Post June 2021, settled EU citizens will likely be treated as the equivalent of other people settled in the UK (British citizens and non-EEA citizens with ILR) and will need to meet the relevant salary, language and other requirements. It is unclear what the requirements for family members of pre-se...

Re: Anyone tried requesting additional time in visa using ‘exceptional indemnity’?

Your friend may have to justify why he is unwilling to take a reasonable indirect flight.

Also, does his passport allow him to enter the Schengen Zone for a short period of time? He could look at take a flight from Paris, travelling there by Eurostar.

Re: Naturalisation for my daughter

Why is your wife so reluctant to apply for ILR? Keep in mind that her Indian citizenship (assumed based on your flag) will not be impacted in any way if she has ILR. It will only be lost if she becomes a British citizen. But if your wife is granted ILR, your daughter can apply for ILR with her and t...

The UK has left the EU on 31st January 2020 and British citizens are no longer EU citizens (though they have some specific rights in EU countries under...

Re: Can I travel outside UK as my current BRP expires in 45days

Given the suddenness with which restrictions on travel can be imposed, by multiple countries (or even subnational entities), and given how absences from the UK can impact at various parts of the immigration process, I think it would be wiser to avoid all but very essential travel outside the UK at t...

Re: Travel to France on UK ILR Visa with British Spouse, Visa Free?

In theory, yes.

But keep in mind that all of you could be delayed for hours at Dover by the French PAF (French border police), who will not likely let you pass without detailed checks. So factor in long delays leaving the UK.

The Surinder Singh route route is premised on the ability of a British citizen, who has exercised treaty rights outside the UK AND who has created or strengthened family life with a family member during that exercise, moving back to the UK with their non-EEA family member.

Re: UK BRP validity after Germany BlueCard

The only caveat that I would add to CR001 's advice above is that while there is no requirement to surrender your Tier 2 visa and that eventually you may even be able to get ILR, be aware that the absence and physical presence requirements for British citizenship are much stricter. So, if your event...

You don't need to prove employment.

However, you do need to prove that you were resident in the UK and were not absent from the UK for more than two years after acquiring PR.
