    Please can someone help. We have a single 16yr old from Eire (Rep. of Ireland) who has come here to do a music course at college. He has no money/capital and no financial help from parents/family. He states he intends to remain in England indefineately.

    As he is a burden on the state and has no means to support himself I assume he is not eligible to HB. However, I have read that as he intends to stay he may in the future be a contributor to the economy so can claim HB? Would this depend on the qualification or is this not true and irrelevant????

    Many thanks.

    The Republic of Ireland is in the Common Travel Area so not a PFA.

    Sorry, how stupid of me!!! If the person was from France say, what would the answer be out of curiosity?

    As a student they would need to be self-sufficient and hold comprehensive medical insurance to have a qualifying right to reside. As they had no income or capital they would not be classed as self-sufficent so fail the HRT.

    If they did have income and medical insurance you would then need to consider the Habitual Residence.

    …and even after satisfying that, the student would need to be classed as vulnerable.
