|Background:Boyf is a qualified, experienced primary teacher from America and I am qualified, experienced ESL teacher from Britain. We've both got teaching jobs at an International School in Qatar for next two years, during which time we intend to get married.
My question:When our two years in Qatar is up, by what means can he move back to Europe with me and work legally? We don't know where in Europe yet, depends where two suitable jobs come up in 2016.
We've had an absolute TONNE of conflicting advice from everyone including the UK citizen's advice bureau, various forums, and an independent immigration advice NGO and nobody knows the answer! One thing is unanimous though, no EU school offers visa sponsorship/support that we've seen - you have to sort out your own paperwork and eligibility.
However, we know that there are American teachers working legally in Europe (there are even American schools in Europe) so it can't be impossible.
Does anyone have any real, recent experience moving an American to Europe as the spouse of an EU citizen and can you talk me through the process please?
I'll put this on more than one page because people in different EU areas might have different knowledge. Thank you in advance for your help.
