European Visas - EEA Residents Permit

We can assist you if you want to apply for a residence permit. You may need to register under the Worker Registration Scheme before you are eligible to apply for a residence permit.

A residence permit simply confirms that you have a right to live in the United Kingdom under European Community law.

You will need to apply for a residence permit if your family members want to apply for a residence document.

A residence permit is normally valid for five years. However, residence permits may be issued for a shorter period if you are working or studying in the United Kingdom for less than 12 months.

A residence permit will not normally be given if:

  • You are in the United Kingdom for a short visit;
  • You are looking for work;
  • You will work and live in the United Kingdom for less than three months; or
  • You do not work in the United Kingdom and cannot support yourself without help from public funds.

Your family's rights

If your family are EEA nationals, they have the same rights to live and work in the United Kingdom as you. The information in this section will be most relevant to members of your family who are not EEA nationals (non-EEA family members).

Can my family join me in the United Kingdom?

Yes, if you have a right to live in the United Kingdom, your family may join you.

Under European Community law, your family includes:

  • Your husband or wife;
  • Your, or your husband's or wife's, children or grandchildren (if they are under 21 or, if they are over 21 and dependent on you); and
  • Dependent relatives, for example, your husband's or wife's parents and grandparents.

If you are a student, only your husband or wife and your dependent children can join you.

What about my other relatives?

Your other relatives (such as brothers, sisters, cousins and so on) do not have an automatic right to live in the United Kingdom with you.

However, applications for your other relatives to join may be considered if you are working in the United Kingdom and:

  • They are your dependant; or
  • They were living with you before you came to the United Kingdom.
