FAQs - Unmarried couples
I want to move from my home country to another EU country with my partner. I'm an EU national but he isn't. Does our proof of long-term cohabitation mean my partner automatically acquires an entry right?
NO - Once you've proved you're in a long-term partnership, every EU country is obliged to "facilitate entry" for your partner.
However, exactly what you have to do to prove this is often not specified in a country's laws, so your partner could still be refused entry and residence rights.
