EU-Route for Partners

Hi.

My Dutch boyfriend and I want to register me as his partner. In NL it is complicated for us due to the income requirement. He studies/works half time so he doesn't meet it but he has savings.

We have heard about the EU route where with proof of a long standing relationship the permit can be authorised as unmarried partners. We have lived with each other 3 times in NL and 4 in Mexico for study or travel. Have daily Skype conversation transcripts, photos, old visas, etc.

1. Given he doesn't meet the income requirement. Anyone knows if he could live/register in BE or DE  as self-sufficient (On his own savings. If so, does someone know the required savings amount?) while commuting few days a week to Holland for study? - and applying for me based on savings rather than income in one of these countries- we thought of it as a possibility.

2. I understand I could be there with him for 3 months as a tourist or a work permit and then apply for my change of purpose but what if the visa is not authorised before my 3 month Schengen visa ends or the visa I am in, at the time?

We thought of this possibility:
-I go to BE at the Dutch border with a work permit as an au pair (up to a year)
-He comes join me immediately and we rent/live together.
-He registers as EU resident in BE based on his own savings (Possible?)
-While I am there we apply for partnership under EU law based one his own savings instead of income (Possible?) - and our documented long standing 5 year relationship.

Any helpful thoughts? :)

Thanks.

Hi Mau and welcome to the Forum. :)

As you seem to want advice relating to you emigrating to Belgium, then it's probably better to ask your question in our Belgian forum; this link will take you there.
