To qualify for EEA family permit under Surinder Singh judgement, the rules don't lay down any minimum time you must be resident (and your husband working) in Poland, only that the work must not be casual or transient. So it must be at least longer than 3 months (anything less will be interpreted as transient) and it must be a real job capable of sustaining the both of you. So, for example, working full time in a restaurant will be acceptable, but probably not just for weekends.I'm trying to work out the EEA family permit thing.
My husband is a UK citizen. If we were to move to Poland, and he were to work there (he speaks fluent Polish), how long would he have to work before we could come to the UK on an EEA family permit?
Well, if he can get an expat-type package (which will be like a dream job in Poland), it may be possible but the depth of economic woe there must be understood and accepted. So you need to consider all the facts and risks before relocating 1000's of miles with a young family. What if your husband loses his job or the company goes bust, and you have no support structure? Social security is quite primitive and doesn't amount to much. You can literally be stranded there with little money and sources of help. Winter is very bleak and houses are often inadequately heated and insulated, esp in many older properties in poor state of maintenance.Thanks. Maybe we'd go somewhere else then. I don't really know yet, I'm just trying to work out a Plan B if we don't get the visa.
My brother-in-law has a high ranking job for a company in Poland, and he has mentioned helping my husband get a job, so maybe that would be a possibility.
