European resident conditions

Hello people!

I want to buy an InterRail pass (Global Pass) and I am Brazilian. But I've been leaving in England for more than 6 months and that allows me to buy the pass.

I have two questions:
1. I am holding a Student Visa to leave in UK and I read somewhere that non-european holding a visa to any country in Europe is not considered a european resident. Is that correct? Will I be able to buy the pass even holding a Student Visa?

2. I've been leaving in England for more than 6 months, but I left Europe for holidays about 2 months ago. Is that considered a interruption?! Can I still buy the pass?!

Thank you!

Good news. as you stayed 6 or more months in the UK, you can buy an InterRail pass.
The important document (or proof) is the visa printed in your passport showing you 6th months stay!
Even if you went back home for some days or weeks, that's no problem as your main residency (the place where you work/live/study) is the UK.
Conditions of use for Interrail:
Eurail or Interrail:

Just go on and select the pass you want. fill in the data needed and select as country of residence the UK. as passport number fill in the number of your Brazilian passport!!

That's it !! 🙂
All the best and a lot of fun, Peter 🙂
