I understand that, but I know that there are exceptions.
, I grew up in Portugal and also studied and worked there for years. Also, in November 2012 I left the UK to go to Spain where I worked on a freelance contract short period of time. I returned to the UK in November 2013 which is more or less the time a meet my wife. What is more, I also have a UK Permanent Resident Card.
Please let me know your comments.
So the application can be made EEA Family Permit citing exception:
"Has a right to permanent residence in the UK in reliance on the previous definition on the 16 July 2012" ?
Will this exception be enough to qualify EEA Family Permit? Or shall I also cite that I worked in Portugal in the past and more recently in Spain?
I have attached my UK Resident Card consideration. Basically, the card was issued pursuant to Directive 2004/38/EC and it was issued on 24 July 2007. Please review it and let me know if I still qualify EEA Family Permit with this card.
