Right of Residence in UK Law

Leading Cases
  • Sala (Efms: Right of Appeal)
    • Upper Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber)
    • 19 Ago 2016

    That distinction is, in our judgment, reflected in the provisions dealing with the issue of residence cards under the EEA Regulations 2006. As the case law makes clear, the only right or entitlement that an EFM has in the decision-making process is that the discretion whether to issue a residence card is exercised lawfully and in accordance with the Citizens Directive ( Rahman at [21]–[25]).

  • Gm and Am (Eu National; Establishing Self-Sufficiency)
    • Asylum and Immigration Tribunal
    • 10 Jul 2006

    Thus, the family member's presence in the UK (and right to work) is relied upon not in order to avoid a ‘clog’ or ‘chill’ on the exercise of the right of the EU national child but rather in order to create that very right itself – the right from which the family member then seeks to derive his own right to reside as her carer/parent.

  • Damion Harrison (Jamaica) v Secretary of State for the Home Department
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 21 Dic 2012

    If the EU citizen, be it child or wife, would not in practice be compelled to leave the country if the non-EU family member were to be refused the right of residence, there is in my view nothing in these authorities to suggest that EU law is engaged.

    Accordingly, there is no impediment to exercising the right to reside if residence remains possible as a matter of substance, albeit that the quality of life is diminished. Of course, to the extent that the quality or standard of life will be seriously impaired by excluding the non EU national, that is likely in practice to infringe the right of residence itself because it will effectively compel the EU citizen to give up residence and travel with the non-EU national.

  • Selim Macastena v Secretary of State for the Home Department
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 05 Jul 2018

    An extended family member can only be issued with a residence card on the basis of his durable relationship with an EEA national if the Secretary of State has undertaken That has never happened and can only happen after an application for a residence card is made. Merely notifying the Secretary of State that one is in a durable relationship is nowhere near enough either to constitute such extensive examination or to require such examination to be undertaken.

  • HR (Portugal) v Secretary of State for the Home Department
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 05 May 2009

    Recital 23 is implemented in Articles 16 and 28.2; recital 24 is implemented in Article 28.3. It relates to “persons who, having availed themselves of the rights and freedoms conferred on them by the Treaty, have become genuinely integrated into the host Member State”.

  • AP and FP (Citizens Directive Article 3(2))
    • Asylum and Immigration Tribunal
    • 24 Abr 2007

    We are aware that it has been suggested that the scope of the national legislation to which reference is made in Article 3(2) is itself limited to matters of procedure: in other words, that Article 3(2) is to be read as giving some sort of substantive right to the wider family members to whom it refers, and that the procedural aspects of those rights (only) are subject to national legislation.
