Assuming you have your passport, if you attempt to visit the most likely outcome is that you just go through an automatic passport reader gate, and never talk to an immigration officer. However, there is a small potential risk. By applying for a settlement visa you have indicated you are able and willing to move to the UK, increasing the risk of overstay. ...

It is not clear which visa checklist you're looking at. You should be using the visa facilitation checklist for family member of EU, EEA or Swiss nationals. This is an application for a short-stay visa, but strangely it is the correct application for you even if you intend to remain in the Netherlands permanently. The relevant item on the checklist: ...

You seem to have received confusing and incomplete information. Your situation is dealt with by Directive 2004/38/EC. Below important parts of that directive are explained. For exact text of relevant articles, see link above. A Union citizen is the national of an EU member state. A spouse of a Union citizen is a family member for the purpose of this ...

The rule that you are referring to is covered under INA 214(c)(5)(A) which states: In the case of an alien who is provided nonimmigrant status under section 1101(a)(15)(H)(i)(b) or 1101(a)(15)(H)(ii)(b) of this title and who is dismissed from employment by the employer before the end of the period of authorized admission, the employer shall be ...

It's looking like there will be a transition period until at least the end of 2020. The current UK government wants to eliminate the possibility of extending this period, but some in the EU have said that it may be unavoidable. The likelihood of going one way or the other will become more apparent later in the year. During the transition period, free ...

No, both would require some form of visa to stay a year. Assuming that Brexit is effective to 01.02.2020, the 90/180 days rule of the Schengen Area will apply for both UK and Australian citizens. The assumption that the transition applies for everything is wrong. It applies only to areas explicitly stated in the Withdrawal agreement. In the area about ...

Ultimately yes, for permanent residence (a green card) you will need to be sponsored by an employer (unless you happen to meet your future husband/wife). However, asking an employer to sponsor you for a green card is a very big request, particularly for a junior developer. Remember, although there is a need for developers, there are also a lot of ...

I'm not a lawyer, but here are my 2 cents: 1) IMHO, marriage does not depend too much on your visa / residence permit. If you want to have a marriage, it should be possible. If in Germany it is too complicated, you can probably do it in another country (Denmark? Turkey? India? Embassy?) and later recognise (strictly speaking, in some cases an official ...

What you've found is pretty much it, but "a company to sponsor you" could be a company that has offices both in the EU and the US. You might look for companies that you could begin working for in Europe and then try to convince them to transfer you to the US. And keep entering the lottery. You can spend up to 90 days at a time in the US on the visa waiver ...

Changing your address to outside the USA could signal that you're abandoning your residency in the USA or that you don't live in the USA at all. It may be safer to either rent a Post Office Box or Private Mail Box. There are some private mail box services that will even open and scan your mail for you - and send the scanned images anywhere in the country. ...

Responding to the title of your question: if you obtain permanent residency in another country, you'll always be a visitor - a tolerated, long-term visitor to be sure, but not a citizen. Your passport will be that of your country of origin, and you may face challenges when it's time to renew it. (If you can achieve permanent residency, as @phoog notes in ...
