Re: British Citizen living in Ireland - bring Non-EU Spouse to Ireland.

Thanks, I'm in a similar situation to you and very much looking forward to hearing all the details as I am about to do it myself.

I'm really glad your family was re-united, and I wish you all the best.

Re: Marriage

I've been trying to do this myself, and honestly it is easier to go to Japan and get married.

To get married in Japan you need to get documents proving you are allowed to marry (not already married etc.) from the Romanian embassy. You don't need a visa to visit Japan.

Re: "Durable relationship" without living together

Yes, about Ireland specifically. The intention is to move there, get a temporary visa under FoM/EEA rules and then get married before applying for a residency card.

Please move it to the correct place. Sorry for the hassle.

"Durable relationship" without living together

I'm looking to move to Ireland and exercise treaty rights. I'm not married to my partner yet. The Irish immigration site seems to imply that a "durable relationship" requires living together for some time, but we have not. I have visited many times but only shared a residence for a week or so. Other...

Re: Marriage visa refused, appeal?

Thanks for responding. This is a marriage visa, not a settlement one. We just want to get married, so it is a temporary visa. English skills are not a requirement. For clarity she does know my full name and where I am from, but because she does not speak English and was nervous at the interview she ...

Marriage visa refused, appeal?

My fiancee is Chinese and her marriage visa was refused. Reasons given are that she used the Chinese translation of my name in the interview and was not very familiar with UK geography or able to remember the English name of the place where I live. She does not speak English at all. Is appealing the...

Re: BREXIT WITHDRAWAL AGREEMENT.

What will happen to British citizens currently exercising treaty rights and living with a non-EU spouse?

Sounds like to be safe they will have to return together to the UK and apply for residence before March 2019.

Getting married in the UK (recently divorced)

I want to marry my long term partner in the UK. I intend to apply for a marriage visa for her. She is a Chinese national, but was living in Japan for about 10 years until December 2017. I have visited her in China over the new year and sent her money for years. She was divorced from a Japanese man i...

Re: British Citizen to Ireland Need your help please

You need to work or study to make use of Freedom of Movement rights. You can't just go there and live on savings. It would need to be a minimum of six months anyway to really stand a chance of using the SS route.

Re: Chinese spouse via EEA route in 2018

In particular I'm worried about the current guidance which states:

"the purpose of the residence in the EEA host country was not as a means to circumvent any UK immigration law applying to non-EEA nationals (e.g. the Immigration Rules)"

I thought that the ECJ ruled that the reason was irrelevant.

Chinese spouse via EEA route in 2018

Hi. I'm looking at using the EEA route next year (2018) for my Chinese fiancee whom I hope to marry soon. I'd like some advice on if this is likely to work, as if it doesn't the consequences could be quite bad for her. We have been together for over 5 years. She does not speak English and is having ...

Re: 2nd EU Referendum petition

A second referendum is required because the first was was too narrow. Okay, we come out of the EU, but what about the single market? What about freedom of movement? Scotland will effectively get another referendum in the form of an independence vote, which as ever is rather vague and doesn't define ...

Re: 2nd EU Referendum petition

This is all very unsatisfactory. A Prime Minister with no mandate, trying to implement a "full Brexit" for which she has no mandate either. The referendum only covered EU membership, not the Single Market or freedom of movement. To cap it all off, she seems to have rejected having a general election...

Re: BREXIT-- Threat or Opportunity

Last night on Newsnight a government minister pretty much confirmed that the promise to make immigration easier for non-EEA citizens has been reneged. It lasted a bit longer than the £350m/week for the NHS, but not quite a week. Realistically, there is around 0.0% chance of there being any positive ...

Re: Moving to Scotland to preserve freedom of movement right

It sounds like the Scottish government is going to push to never leave the EU at all. Even if they technically have to leave and re-join, I think it is likely that they won't actually repeal all the laws that enact EU rules, including on freedom of movement. It would be a pointless waste of time, es...

Moving to Scotland to preserve freedom of movement rights

I'm considering the SS route or maybe trying normal immigration if the rules become more favourable (extremely unlikely). Unfortunately I'm English so am considering moving to Scotland, which will stay in the EU. What are the implications of doing this? At the moment a UK citizen can simply move to ...

Re: Post Brexit Discussion

I don't think the EU will want to wait until October to get this process started. They have already said today that they want it done quickly. The next few weeks will be critical as we will have to decide if we want to stay in the Single Market and accept the freedom of movement that comes with it, ...

Re: Post Brexit Discussion

The prospect of marrying my beloved is the only thing keeping me going. I can't carry on without her, so either I have to find the strength to leave the UK somehow or the strength to end my misery. I wonder how many others have been driven over the edge by today's result.
