Brexit EEA Citizens
New Settled Status Scheme for EU Citizens
The UK Government has set out new details of how the new settled status scheme for EU citizens and their family members will operate as the UK leaves the EU. In a technical document sent to the European Commission as part of the negotiations, the Government reiterates how the new system will be streamlined, low-cost and user-friendly, with EU citizens consulted on its design.
We are able to provide assistance and advice in the following areas:
EEA Family Permit
If a non-EEA family member of an EEA national (for example a spouse, civil partner, unmarried partner, child, grandchild or grandparent) who is outside the UK wishes to come to the UK to join their EEA family member, they must apply to the British Embassy for an EEA family permit. If this European visa is granted, they are entitled to come to the UK to join their EEA family member.
EEA Residence Card
A non-EEA family member of an EEA national (for example a spouse, civil partner, unmarried partner, child, grandparent) who is already in the UK can apply for an EEA Residence Card so that they can remain in the UK with their EEA family member. This can benefit a person who is in the UK on any visa category or even potentially someone who has entered the UK illegally.
An EEA national and their non-EEA family members can apply for settlement (permanent residence) after having resided together in the UK continuously for five years.
