EEA Family Members & Extended Family members
A family member, who is a non EEA national, can apply for a Residency Permit to join their EEA national family member in UK. The family member’s rights are derived from the European law.
Family members include:
- Children under the age of 21 years of age
- Other family members such as siblings, uncles and aunts
If you wish to apply for a Resident Permit as a non EEA national, you will need to show:
- You are a family member of the EEA national
- You are financially and emotionally dependent upon the EEA national
The Resident Permit will be issued for the same length of period as the EEA national family member’s Resident Permit. If you continuously meet the criteria for a non EEA family member for 5 years, you can apply for Permanent Residency in your own right.
If you are a non EEA family member wanting to apply for a Resident Permit, we can help you.

- You are a national of an EEA member state
- You are exercising your Treaty Rights in the UK, such as, you are a worker, self employed person, self-sufficient person, student or retired person.
The Resident Permit is granted for a duration for the length of the purpose you require.
