Am mai citit si eu putin si am sa pun si celorlalti ce zice pe site la UKBA.Penru mine e clar cred ca si pentru altii va fi. Residence documents for European nationals This page explains why a national of the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland may want to apply for confirmation that they have the right to live in the UK. If you are an EEA or Swiss national, you can apply for a registration certificate. This is a document which confirms your right of residence in the UK under European law. When you have lived in the UK for a continuous period of 5 years in accordance with the European regulations, you can apply for a document certifying permanent residence. Do you need to apply? Under European law, you do not need to obtain documentation confirming your right of residence in the UK if you are a national of a country in the EEA. However, if you want to support an application for a residence card by any of your family members who are not EEA nationals, you must demonstrate that you are residing in the UK in accordance with the Immigration (European Economic Area) Regulations 2006 and are 'exercising Treaty rights' in the UK. You are said to be exercising Treaty rights if you are: employed or self-employed; or studying; or economically self- sufficient (meaning that you have sufficient funds to support you without requiring public funds); or a jobseeker; or retired; or someone who has had to cease working in the UK owing to permanent incapacity. (If you are a Bulgarian or Romanian national, you may need to be authorised by us before you can work here. See the European workers section for more information.) Succes.
