Minimum Earnings to qualify for Permanent Residence

1 comment

I am an Italian National. Am I required to earn some minimum amount of income every year to qualify for Permanent Residence. I have been on and off with jobs.

Though there is no minimum income stipulated in the European rules, the UK Home Office may refuse Permanent Residence Applications if the income of the applicant is lower than the HMRC thresholds for NI contributions.


For detailed explanation, please click on the below link:

EEA / European Union Nationals - Minimum Earnings required to qualify for Permanent Residence after living and working in the UK for at least 5 consecutive years


Further, whenever, you were off from work, the Home Office expects you to be registered as a Job-seeker. If you have not been registered as a Job-seeker, then you should at least be able to produce evidence that you were actively looking for work, such as email exchange with Recruiters, emails confirming CV sent to recruiters/employers, job interview confirmations, employment offers, etc.

    Let me begin by thanking you for this beautiful place where we can seek for some legal advices. I have been living in the UK for a little more than three years as a non EEA spouse of an Italian citizen. However, I am getting Italian citizenship in a week through Italian Consulate in London. Do I need to inform Home Office or other government agencies once I get my Italian citizenship as I want to reside here as an Italian? Thanks.
