State/Country relating to question: Republic of Cyprus
Hi, unfortunately experts are not permitted to act for customers outside of the site. However, as teh Spouse of a Portugese National, you should be eligible to apply for an EEA Family Permit to allow you to join your Spouse in any other EU Member State.
If you wish to return to Portugal, you will have to obtain a Portugese Spouse Visa, although, I would be of the opinion that you would be granted entry quite swiftly based on the decision in the case of Surinder Singh.
I hope this answers your question. If so, kindly click ACCEPT. Kind regards,
if i apply for a EEA permit or visit visa for portugal i need residence permit for cyprus, because my wife not live togeather with me so i can not get residence permit.
because cyprus is not my home country, i am from pakistan
Hi, you do not require a residence permit for cyprus to obtain an EEA Family Permit if your Spouse is an EU National
i need it because cyprus is not in schengen state so all the european embassies ask for cyprus residence permit if you want to apply for european visa
i tried in czech , german embassy but they do not accept my application for visa because i do not have residence permit.
can you find me the solution or help me to arrange visa i will pay all your fee
can you give me your contact number so i can ask or talk to you in future when i need
Hi, it does not matter that it is not in a Schengen Area. As the Spouse of an EU National, you would be entitled to obtain an EEA Family Permit to join your Spouse in Cyprus. Once you have lived there with your Spouse for at least 3 months, you would be able to travel to Portugal.
Unfortunately, experts are not permitted to act for customers outside of the site, so I can therefore not assist you with this matter. Although, I am happy to answer any follow-up questions if you click ACCEPT.
