The answer states that I would have to obtain authorisation to work, while the latest statement of intent from the UKBA (which the answer doesn't even mention or refer to, while I did in my question) clearly states that spouses do not need to apply for authorisation to work.Instead it just states that, yes it would be easier to move to the Uk when Croatia is an EU member - which I think is quite obvious. What we really need to know is once Croatia becomes an EU member would I have to apply for any authorisation to work since I am married to a British Citizen?
There are restrictions, it seems on how long I could stay there, without a job offer if I do need to in fact be authorised to work and that is what we would like clarity on.
We have all of the necessary paperwork and meet all requirements for a spousal visa but it costs 1000 euros and would not be processed until the end of July and my wife is moving back to the UK in a week, so we would like to cut down the time we have to be apart.
