SY and others (EEA Regulation 10, Dependancy Alone Insufficient) Sri Lanka: IAT 7 Mar 2006

IAT LS (EEA Regulations 2000 – Meaning of ‘Dependant’) Sri Lanka [2005] UKAIT 00132 is not authority for the proposition that, once a person has shown that he is dependent on an EEA national or his spouse, the person concerned is entitled without more to an EEA family permit or a residence document, as the case may be. As the wording of regulation 10(1) of the Immigration (European Economic Area) Regulations 2000 makes plain, the respondent has a discretion whether to grant such a permit and that discretion is not incompatible with the underlying EEA legislation.
