I am asking this on behalf of my brother-ib-law. He is an Italian citizen who has been living in the UK for one and half years. My sister married him some 8 years ago and they have two kids 7 and 3 who are also Italian citizens but my sister currently has an Italian residence card which expires in another 2 years while she is a Pakistani citizen and she has been living in Pak with her kids for 2 years now. They have always wanted to move to the UK but sadly recently my brother-in-law has been diagnosed with tumor which is in critical stage. He always planned to travel to Italy and then bring his family with him which doesn't require my sister to have a visa or EEA permit to enter. His traveling is now out of the question so I have the following queries and I would really appreciate some advice.
- We have been told that if his hospital writes a letter describing his illness and his inability to travel, she can travel with her kids without him travelling with them and she will be allowed to enter the UK from Italy. Are there any legal grounds for that?
- My brother-in-law used to work regularly till January this year but lost his job and then went to Pak for three months trip in early this year. He hasn't been able to find any regular job and has been doing a few hours here and there to make ends meet till he has diagnosed a month ago. He has payslips of his job till January and then a recent payslip for his odd job. Will that has any impact on his eligibility? He has recently applied and got his pre-settled status in the UK for the EU settlement scheme.
Really appreciate any advice
