Re: EU Permits - A few bullet points

Q. Is my significant other allowed to come with me?
A. Yes.

Q. Is my significant other allowed to work?
A. Yes, provided the union is official (marriage, civil partnership), and regardless of nationality.


The Confederation has picked up upon our wisdom and have also set up a Q&A page.

On the website quoted it says:

Family members of nationals of EC/EFTA member states who originate from third countries are only able to invoke the right to family reunion according to the Agreement on the Free Movement of Persons if they have already been permanently resident in an EU/EFTA country prior to their application. If this is not the case, the issue of a permit is governed by national law.

Does this have any implications? Doesn't this imply that non-eu spouses are not automatically allowed to come?
