    Hello,

    I've heard, albeit not on this forum, about someone who was refused entry because their family member sponsor was not in the UK when they arrived in the UK on a family permit, as the permit is intended for people either travelling with, or joining, their family member in the UK.

    In any case, it's always better to communicate directly with the people involved rather than via third parties, so why don't you ask your friend to join our forum?

    Family permits are valid for 6 months, I don't know when your friend's husband got his but it may be an idea to wait till the sponsor is back in the UK.

      Aisha R (lawyer) Would it be possible to use a different sponsor for the pre-settled application than the one used for the family permit? Will this change next year? I'm asking because next year, all family members will need to enter on a family permit and it will no longer be possible to switch over from visit visa or entering without a visa.

          I do not know how they can enter the UK on an EEA Family Permit when the sponsor named on the EEA Family Permit visa label is no longer living in the UK

            Indeed, I remember someone posting on a FB group about being refused entry at the border on these basis.

              Eligibility for EU family permit


              The EEA citizen you’re joining must either:
              • be in the UK already
              • be travelling with you to the UK within 6 months of the date of your application

              If they’ve been in the UK for more than 3 months they must either:
              • be a ‘qualified person’ (working, looking for work, self-employed, studying or self-sufficient)
              • have or be eligible for a permanent residence document - sometimes called a ‘document certifying permanent residence’
              EUSS
              If you're not an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen



              You may be able to apply if:
              • you’re a family member of an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen
              • you’re the family member of a British citizen and you lived outside the UK in an EEA country together
              • you’re the family member of a British citizen who also has EU, EEA or Swiss citizenship and who lived in the UK as an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen before getting British citizenship
              • you used to have an EU, EEA or Swiss family member living in the UK
              • you’re the family member of an eligible person of Northern Ireland
              • you’re the primary carer of a British, EU, EEA or Swiss citizen
              • you’re the child of an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen who used to live and work in the UK, or the child’s primary carer
              If you’re overseas and a family member of an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen living in the UK

              The deadline for you to join your family member in the UK is 31 December 2020 (or 31 December 2025 if your partner is Swiss and you get married or form a civil partnership after 31 December 2020).

              If you’re not living in the UK by the deadline, you’ll still be able to apply if all of the following are true:
              • your family member has either settled or pre-settled status
              • your relationship began before 31 December 2020
              • you remain a close family member, for example a spouse, civil partner, unmarried partner, a dependent child or grandchild, or a dependent parent or grandparent
              If you start work or self-employment in an EU country

              If you’re an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen you can get settled status if you start work or self-employment in an EU country and you both:
              • have lived and worked or been self-employed in the UK continuously for 3 years beforehand
              • usually return to your UK home once a week
              If you’re the family member of an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen at the time they start work or self-employment in an EU country you may also be eligible for settled status.
