Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Home Office,

1. Can you please clarify whether the "status" of an EEA family member, that is a non eu national, that is married to a UK national that exercised his treaty right before returning to the UK is based on

- their partner continuing to exercise their treaty rights as a qualified person?

or

- based on the expiry date stated on their UK issued EU residence card valid for 5years?

2. Can you also clarify when the UK residence card expires after 5 years, does this mean that the non eea family member has no status or do they automatically gain permanent residence rights without applying?

3. Can you also clarify is the UK issued EU residence card valid for 5 years merely confer status of the individual during that 5 year period or is it a visa?

4. Can you also clarify do non eea family member with a UK issued EU residence card have the same rights as their UK partner?

Yours faithfully,

K.King
