Hi, thank you for your enquiry and patience. If you are coming on the spouse visa and not as a dependant of a person who is subject to immigration control in the UK then you will be fine to apply to the GMC once you have your spouse visa, there is no limitation on what work you can do. However not knowing what exactly you want to do you will have to check with the GMC if the qualification you have will require you to sit some conversion exams. I hope this helps and if I can clarify further do not hesitate to send me your follow up question. All the best.
Hi, thank you for your follow up questions. I am happy to respond. if you are a Thai national and the person you are with is a British citizen as opposed to an EEA national ( for immigration purposes please not British Citizens are not considered as people with community rights in their own country) so any of the provisions would not be relevant to you. Unless you have dual Thai and EEA nationality I can get you the guidance on the enforceable community rights.
Hi further to your follow up question, you would not be applying as a family member of an EEA national as explained above. You would only qualify as an exempt person on the grounds of being a family member of a UK national if you and your partner are returning from an EEA nation where you would have lived together as a family for two years. So you cannot be coming from Thailand. The assessment is similar to the Surindher Singh route for applying for settled status in the UK as a family member of a UK citizen who is returning to reside in the UK from an EEA country.I can speak to you on the phone if you need me to clarify anything further and if you still need further guidance after that I will be able to provide you with links to where you can retain solicitors to assist you. I am glad I could help. I will send the call offer to you should you want to talk. All the best.
