My wife and I want to move to the UK. She's from Uruguay and I'm Dutch and we currently live in Spain. We plan to move in 2 months, have booked an AirBnB for the first month until we can find our own apartment. She's a doctor and has a job offer from a hospital. In order to work in the UK as a doctor she needs registration with the GMC (General Medical Council). She's applying to be registered under "Exempt person status" since she's the wife of an EEA national (me). The GMC rejected the application saying I have not shown evidence that I'm exercising my Community rights. This is the form of the GMC we have to fill in: GMC form
- What does it mean that I'm exercising my Community rights?
- Do I need to live in the UK before being able to exercise my Community rights?
