Ask an European Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Just I want to know what is the benefits I will get as being family member(brother or parent) to on Eu citizen or EEA cities as I have one British sister living in Uk London , (family member of an EEA national rights, family member of an EU national rights) I am not EU citizen neither EEA citizen but one family member (sister )she is EU citizen and EEA citizen holding British citizen But I am Palestinian holding Syrian documents, even I am not consider Palestinian as I am not holding Palestinian passport and even not Syrian but this refugee documents(but name is passport ) given to us by Syrian Authority , my passport not in the list so sometime I chose Syrian and sometime Palestinian
Note: I have UK family visa on my passport vialed for 5years and I traveled to Uk many time and even I am traveling to Europe from time to time but each time I need to apply for Visa , tell me what is befits that I can get in case I am dependent on my sister and in case I am not dependent on my sister , I heard that I can travel to Europe without need for visa (freedom movement ) and I have the right to resident in Europe, should I have to get Residence card of a family member of a Union citizen or EEA citizen or there is no need as UK is part of EEA country list and also member of EU ? it seems to be very complicated to understand the law so I need to consult some one expert in EU law
Note : my sister is Not working she is house wife , her husband is working only
Thank you , i am not EU national, it’s my sister who is EU national,
you are right I don’t come under definition of family but I came under something called extended family members and as I know that extended family member will have the right of free movement and right of residence in EU if I am depending on her … could you please explain to me
Hi, I am a moderator for this topic. It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you right away, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected. I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you. Thank you! Wendy
thank you Thegonnec ,
What kind of documents that can be provided as an evidence for dependency on the EEA or EU national
it mentioned in first answer that parents considered as family or they came under family definition if they are dependence so what benefits they got from freedom movement and right of residence and how they can get the Residence card of a family member of a Union citizen or EEA national ,(procedure to obtain this card ) they will only get from UK as they my sister is British citizen and living there or they can get the Residence card from other Europe country like exa
: France , Norway ,etc.
For freedom movement , how it works to get benefits from this , should my parents traveling with my sister to get benefits of this or they can travel them self , should they have the Residence card of a family member of a Union citizen or EEA national to be able to travel to Europe or it is not important , I heard it’s not important to have the Residence card even If they came to the border point , and they don’t have the documents or identity card the offer should give them the enough time to prove the relationship with EU or EEA national citizen . is that right ?
"The application should be made before entering the country in which you want to settle" let say that I want to settle in France so should I make application for residence card in France or in UK or I should apply to the Uk and after getting the card then I can moved to the country I want to settle ?
Should I apply through the embassy where I live right now ? Example , France embassy or I should apply through British embassy as my sister is British citizen
" as this is an assessment that will be made by the authorities of the country in which your sister lives." " The application should be made before entering the country in which you want to settle" how come that application will be submitted in country that I want to settled in and you said before that an assessment will be made by authorities in the country where my sister live (in my case UK ) I am confused ??
As you mentioned that It could be difficult for me to show the evidence of dependency as I am extended family member over 21
But what about parents , did they come under family definition , I think yes ? so if yes did they still need to provide evidence for dependency ?
How I can start applying for the card , What documents that I need to prepare for residence card ,example : parents passport , sister passport .etc….
Last thing , "' Otherwise you face the risk of being turned down at the border." Is't mean maybe they will allow me to enter and maybe no ?
