I thank you for your enquiry and your patience.
If you take your non eea family member over you would not be required to meet the income threshold requirements as you would be applying for her to join you under EU rules. She would be required to apply for a permit as a family member of an EU citizen to join you. She must however act quickly as this position is likely to change in December when the UK leaves the EU.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
thanks for coming back to me for clarification. I had misunderstood you, I was of the view that you were an EU citizen. In that case no, you would not be able to bring over your non EU wife via the EU route. You would have to apply on the basis that you have ILR, in which case you would be required to meet the financial requirement.
I am glad I was able to help. Have a great day.
