Please help! I need as much information as possible!
My boyfriend was born in Cuba, at the age of 14 him and his mother moved to Spain to live with his dad.
He has lived in Spain for 8 years, he now has a spanish passport and obtained a Spanish nationality card which makes him an EEA national. At the moment he is on holiday in the USA visiting family but will be returning to the uk in December to hopefully live and work.
Being an EEA national does this mean he can work and live in the Uk without needing a work permit or visa?
What documentation does he need to bring with him?
How does he go about looking for work?
Is he entitled to job seekers allowance?
Any help or advice would be appreciated and is much needed! Thanks!

He can come to the UK, he can work, he doesn't need to bring anything, he can't claim jobseekers yet.

Yet? How could he go about it in the future?
Is there any financial support available?
Also my worry is that on a cv he will have no referees, as they are all Spanish speaking so would be no use to a future employer. Would this have an affect on his likelihood of becoming employed?

I actually think it is a bit rich coming and immediately asking whether or not he can claim benefits, when he isn't even in the country yet!

Thinking it is abit rich is your opinion. I was merely asking what he was entitled to, if anything atall. I am working, as are my family who will be supporting him in the meantime. He will have to go to the job centre for help looking for work which is why I asked if jsa would be possible whilst he was doing that. You said "yet"' which made me wonder when that would be, thats all.

This is a controversial topic between the EU and the UK government. The UK continues to apply the habitual residence test to EEA nationals and newly arrived migrants aren't defined as habitually resident.
That said, if he hasn't yet exercised treaty rights in the UK, the claim can be refused anyway.
If he is receiving the equivalent of JSA in another EEA country, that can be paid in the UK for up to three months, it needs to be arranged from the other country under their procedures first.
