This is what i gathered i may be wrong someone pls correct me.

I just want to clarify somthing as my family are planning to move in Sept.

Am i correct in saying as i am an Irish citizen living in Northern Ireland never having owned a British passport, my husband (american) can apply for a EAA family permit (free of charge) once issued (could take 30 day) he can travel to N.I without me in November ( baby and myself will already be there with me hopefully working). Within the 6 months as the EAA permit is issued for 6 months he can obtain a job and can apply for a residence card £65. With this he is able to live and work in Northern Ireland with his family.

Does this all seem correct as i got the information from a member and done some research of my own.
Just wanting to make sure before we get all excited and sell everything to move. Thanks for all your help

In your previous posts you said you were eligible for a British passport- if this is the case you can only go the EEA permit route by renouncing your British citizenship.

Then you can apply as an Irish citizen wishing to take their US husband to live in Northern Ireland.

I dont mind renouncing my british citizenship but i would like to know the pros and cons of doing that in general. Also if i did that it would be as straight fowars as i mentioned before, just grt the EAA permit after 6 months apply for residence? Sorry for repeating myself im just confused and want to make sure i have all the infor i need before we do this 😀

Yes, once you have renounced your British citizenship it is relatively easy to apply for a Family permit.

The other option open to you is for you and your family to move to another EU state (not Ireland) live there and then apply for the Family permit.

Paul M B your posts have been moved to a new thread as this one is for basic info, rather than questions on individual situations

Meeting financial requirements

Arabella your posts are here for the same reason

Financial- what if children are British citizens?
