Re: British citizen living abroad? Non-EEA spouse? This may affect you!

Yes, I couldn't agree more. And if they are so worried about the benefits situation, why not just have a blanket restriction on people returning, e.g. no benefits claims for 12 months if you have...

Re: British citizen living abroad? Non-EEA spouse? This may affect you!

Re: Theresa May wants minimum income of £25,700; £49,000 if you have 2 kids

But is the aim citizenship for the foreign spouse? Quite possibly it isn't , especially if they come from a country which doesn't allow dual citizenship and whose citizenship they don't want to give...

Re: Theresa May wants minimum income of £25,700; £49,000 if you have 2 kids

There's plenty people abroad can do. Move first to Europe and come back under EU rules. No fees for the Home Office , no income or asset tests, and serve them right. I think they have a cheek,...

Re: Theresa May wants minimum income of £25,700; £49,000 if you have 2 kids

Try a site like belgium.angloinfo.com. It's a good starting place, at least. But it doesn't really matter where you move to in the EU or EEA as long as you start there, with your foreign born spouse,...

Re: Curse of the Expat

I've been back now for 8 years. I too have days of feeling unsettled. But it's relative isn't it? I too was away for a long time and used to wonder if life would be better back home. At least I don't...

Re: Theresa May wants minimum income of £25,700; £49,000 if you have 2 kids

Re: Anybody Gone Home With Nothing?

You should be able to open a bank account for here just by banking with HSBC overseas and then opening one here online. It is SO much easier to arrive here with a working debit card and credit card. ...

Re: News UK news Immigration and asylum Stark choice under new immigration

But is that the issue? The British amount seems designed to prevent poorer Brits from returning here with their foreign born spouses. The American amount is based on a relatively low job that pretty...
