Rehman (EEA Regulations 2016 – Specified Evidence : Pakistan): UTIAC 8 Apr 2019

The principles outlined in Barnett and Others (EEA Regulations; rights and documentation) [2012] UKUT 142 are equally applicable to The Immigration (European Economic Area) Regulations 2016. Section 1 of Schedule 1 to these regulations provides that the sole ground of appeal is that the decision breaches the appellant’s rights under the EU Treaties in respect of entry to or residence in the United Kingdom. The provisions contained in regulations 21 and 42 must be interpreted in the light of European Union law. In some cases, this might involve ignoring the requirement for specified evidence altogether if a document is not in fact required to establish a right of residence.
