From my understanding, my non-EU husband is allowed to travel with me (British citizen, living and working in France since 2010) to the UK without a visa or family permit, because he holds an article 10 residence card stating 'family member of...'.
Does this rule apply when traveling to London from Paris via Eurostar? I have read various comments from people saying that the Eurostar is not considered an official port of entry to the UK and so the border agents will not allow article 10 residence card holders to enter. Bear in mind that these comments are from 2013.
We plan to travel at the end of February with our 5-month-old baby (British passport holder). We will be taking our multilingual French marriage certificate as proof he is my spouse, and a letter from my employer (stating I am employed but currently on maternity leave) and my work contract as proof I have been exercising, and still exercise, my treaty rights in an EU member state.
If anyone has any experience from a previous trip, some reassurance would be welcome.
Thank you for any advice or answers.
