Re: First time passport for a baby (non-Irish EU parent)

It looks yo me that all the various proofs of residence are just examples and that you would only need to supply any of those examples, not all of them.

So I would think just the P60s would be enough.

Maybe give two different proofs per year just to be safe?

I’m a US citizen. Ryanair always “visa check” me. On a recent flight from Ireland to Spain, the gate agent flipped through my passport as if looking for something.

Car Insurance with International Driving Licence

I highly recommend xxx for expat auto insurance. I am resident in the UK for almost 2 years, and 11 months ago got my full UK license. I drove on my US license until I received my full UK license.

I would highly recommend xxxxx. It's best to ring them and let them know your situation. They gave me a good rate.

Permanent Residence

If permanent residence is automatically acquired after exercising free movement rights in the UK for a continuous period of 5 years, why do you need to apply for EEA4?

Is it similar to a residence card being optional in theory but actually required in order to prove your right work?

I don't believe you actually require a family permit or any other document, other than your passport to re-enter the UK as an american.
