Maybe then you will have to re-apply or even appeal, which will cost even more money. Get it right in the first place. Why take the risk, when our UK Immigration Solicitors will navigate the complexities of your case for you. With us, you get total peace of mind.

Family members of EEA citizens enjoy the right of admission to the UK providing they can prove their relationship to an EEA citizen. A family member wishing to travel to the UK can apply to an Entry Clearance Officer (ECO) for an EEA family permit, which will considerably ease the passage into the UK.

5-year Residence Card

You can apply for a residence card if you’re both:


  • from outside the European Economic Area (EEA)
  • the family member, or extended family member, of an EEA national who is a permanent resident or ‘qualified person’

You may also be eligible for a residence card if you have a ‘retained right of residence’ or make a ‘Surinder Singh’ application.


Qualified persons

A qualified person is someone who is in the UK and one of the following applies:


  • they’re working
  • they’re self-employed
  • they’re self-sufficient
  • they’re studying
  • they’re looking for work (only if they meet certain conditions)

Family members of EEA citizens

You can apply as a direct family member if you’re related to the EEA national as:

  • their spouse or civil partner
  • their (or their spouse or civil partner’s) child or grandchild who is under 21 or a dependant
  • their (or their spouse or civil partner’s) dependent parent or grandparent

If the EEA national is a student, you can only qualify as their family member if you’re:


  • their spouse or civil partner
  • their (or their spouse or civil partner’s) dependent child

Other relatives of students must qualify as extended family members.
