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 Surinder Singh route 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 Surinder Singh route 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 c...

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.

Re: Brexit better for non-EU migrants

It *may* still be possible to enter the EEA through another country and then move on to the UK via Surinder Singh, but one will first have to meet that other country's domestic laws. The literal wording of Cameron's deal says that this will not be possible for spouses who did not come to the EEA be...

Re: Brexit better for non-EU migrants

Remember that EEA immigration will not cease if we exit the EU. EU citizens will just have to apply on the same basis as British citizens when it comes to applying for jobs and bringing their spouses and fiancées in. It won't be a matter of right, it will be a matter of applying, meeting requiremen...

Re: Brexit better for non-EU migrants

Why are students included in this list? Surely, in theory, they are now just long term visitors, and the net influx of students should be zero. Anyone staying over 6 months is counted. They are supposed to go home, sure, but they have more than a temporary visa. Don't ask me, that's just how it's c...

Re: Brexit better for non-EU migrants

You need to lose the 'EU citizens help the UK' attitude. We don't, not unless we are doing a job on their skills shortages. I understand why we all want to live in the UK, but mass migrtion does not help a country. That is ignoring all the other benefits of immigration beyond merely filling in skil...

I would be extremely chary about espousing the views expressed by ryuzaki in the past few posts, because they validate the Brexit point of view pretty exactly. As I understand it, he is offering the EU as a system of governance which is an alternative to the one in Westminster. if you do not like a...

Re: Brexit better for non-EU migrants

What a Brexit will mean is that the pressure will be more evenly spread. Currently the force of any downward pressure falls entirely on the non-EEA immigration population. Leaving the EEA (it won't be a case of just leaving the EU) will allow that pressure to be spread wider and thus likely easing ...
