    Default Surinder Singh And Family Unity

    The current spouse rules may make the alternative EEA route very popular for family members of British citizens.

    All caused by the stupid income rules never mind the other hurdles and on this note the "ring fenced" foreign aid given out by this country to people who can never come here, the lunatics are truly running the asylum

    I didn't know either, but generally good at working out Three Letter Acronyms, as work in IT, so having had my say, why don't you Have Your Say now and take a guess

    Nope, caused by a European Court ruling when interpretating the free movement regs for Mr Singh. At least this one benefits the Brits who want to take advantage of it

    Seriously, how many Brits do you think will be able to take advantage of this?

    In theory, this is a great way around the British law...

    ...but living in the real world, people can not just up sticks pack in a job and go and live in Europe just to bypass immigration rules. It is just not practical.

    No .... This is a positive EU benefit for everybody else in the world who wants to live in Britain.
    Which Brittish citizens can also use to live in their own country.
    What a joke !

    Sorry it stands for "have your say" which means all the nutters get to explain why Britain ( in their opinion) is drowning under a sea of immigration and why this needs Mr Farage to do something about it. Its closed for comments now but i had a good few hours of teasing the trolls. Fun while it lasted.

    Everybody else? That really is nonsense. You might want to read the links again.

    A British citizen has an absolute right to live in the UK without Surinder Singh.

    It's fine to spit your dummy out now and again but please get the facts right beforehand!

    Sure a British citizen can live in the UK without the Surrinder Singh policy WITHOUT his Thai spouse .To live here with her one would have to jump through the ridiculous hoops set out by the UKBA ,which in my previous experience is extremely harsh and applies, as I can see to ,British citizens only.....Why should a non UK citizen be allowed to live here with his Thai spouse with no pre-requisites..only a marriage certificate?( I'm not even going to mention the remaining family members)!!!
    The SS policy is a positive benefit for EU citizens ,which us British we can adopt to use in our own country....go figure!
    The problem here is that we all fight each other and not the problem......very British indeed !
    No I'm not spitting out my dummy ..just stating the facts.

    Hi
    At the expense of sounding a little thick here, how easy would it be to get a shengen visa (I assume you need one) for a thai partner for France if you are not a citizen of that country, is the fact that you are working there enough?

    One can huff & puff over it but the SS route is the result of European law (which has also benefited a great many British citizens who have now chosen to live in other European countries), of which the UK has little influence. UKBA obviously share your view but can do nothing about it. They have, however, the legal power to exercise the mandate of the elected government in respect of countries outside the EEA…and they are doing so. Unlike me (since I’ve been expat for more than the qualifying the 15 years and therefore, quite reasonably, have no vote in the UK), most of you have the ability to work towards changing the immigration laws through lobbying your MPs and exercising your vote.

    It is very easy, and free. If you are exercising an economic Treaty Right they must (with very few restricted exceptions) allow your Family Members in with you ... even if you turn up at the border without a visa!

    I think you missed out the appropriate words here "which us British we can adopt to use to bring our spouse in our own country"

    I agree with you. I see this as a positive (and an easier route) for spouses of all nationalities in the EU to come to the UK while for Brits the current rules and regs are a lot harder in their own country.

    And before anyone says it, yes I know this route is open to Brits as well.

    I Know somebody who is working with me the moment, and due to go to the UK shortly, however his wife is having dramas obtaining a visa from Germany as they both live there.

    Does anyone know if this would work for people in the Forces as we pay UK tax, Its just a thought but maybe manipulating this route would be a good option for him and his wife. (without getting himself into trouble)

    Would they just rock up a the border and say that they are exercising this treaty??
