I hold a 5 years resident permit based on being the family member of a EU citizen living in the UK.
I have been in the UK for 2 years with my husband, my permit is valid until 2020 before I will have to renew it as permanent.
my company offered me a promotion but I will need to move to Switzerland for 8 months as part of an assignment before coming back to the UK.
I understand there is a quota to how many days I am allowed to spend outside the UK under my permit. someone told me 6 months... another said it is 3!
I would like to understand if this is correct and whether this means 6 (or 3) continuous month at a given time or do I need to calculate the days I spend outside the UK (even if i was re-entering and exiting the country during this time?)
i have also been told if i can prove to the government that it is work related it should not be a problem and it would not effect my status at all.
i hope someone can help me, i need to get back to my company on this asap.
