I am an EU citizen working in Britain, self-employed, and I would like to bring my Asian wife here in a couple of months time in 2018. Will the status of "qualified person" help me to do it?

Do I have to have a minimum income of £18,600 in order to bring her on an EEA family permit?

  • Thank you.... by the way, does adequate accomodation need to be prepared before my wife comes? I read somewhere, this does not apply for EEA national sponsors... – Freedom_26 Aug 17 '17 at 23:32

Yes.

No. All you need to show is that you are self employed. See https://www.gov.uk/family-permit/documents-you-must-provide:

You must show that your EEA family member has a permanent right of residence or is one of the following if they’ve been in the UK for more than 3 months:

  • working, for example an employment contract, wage slips or a letter from an employer
  • self-employed (for example contracts, invoices or audited accounts with bank statements) and paying tax and National Insurance
  • studying, for example a letter from the school, college or university financially independent, for example bank statements
