Certificate of Union Citizen Registration expiration date
The Certificate of Conformity is an official document of the European Union (EU). The Certificate of Conformity confirms that the individual has obtained his or her qualification in accordance with EU minimum standards. This will be referred to as “conformity of training”. For the recognition of professional qualifications, the Certificate of Conformity is required when the professional qualification to be recognized was obtained before the country of training joined the EU. The Certificate of Conformity is issued for professional qualifications with automatic recognition.
For some self-employed activities and trades the following is important: The person must have the knowledge or ability to perform certain activities. Written proof of experience or competence must be provided. Only then the person receives permission to carry out certain activities in the profession. The document with this permission is called a qualification certificate or certificate of competence.

During the first three months of stay in another country, non-EU citizen family members are not required to apply for a residence document confirming their right to live there, although in some countries they may have to notify their presence upon arrival.
The authorities must make a decision on the issuance of the residence card within six months. If they fail to do so, you can call on our support services. In any case, non-EU family members cannot be expelled if their visa expires while their application is being processed.
If the application is accepted, the issuance of the residence card will probably be free of charge. In any case, it may not cost more than similar identity documents issued to citizens of that country.
Your family members can use their residence card to travel to another EU country, but if they want to move to another EU country they have to apply for another residence card in the new country of destination. Also, as long as they remain dependent on you, you will have to move with them.
