  • Evidence for parents, grandparents and great grandparents

    From July 1st, parents need to show dependency.

  • Settlement Scheme family permit

    The restriction for people who are here as visitors to apply for pre-settled status was removed on the 6th of October. That means close family members who entered the UK on a visit visa are, once more, able to switch over to pre-settled status inside the UK and will not need to apply for an EUSS family permit in order to be eligible.

    This also applies to non-visa nationals.

    Family members who are, themselves, EEA nationals, can apply directly for pre-settled...

    Family members

    The restriction against family members who are in the UK as visitors switching over to pre-settled status has been removed with effect from the 6th of October.

    That means family members who are already in the UK can go ahead and make an application under the EUSS.

    They don't need to leave the country to make an application from abroad if they are EEA nationals or apply for a family permit if they are non EEA nationals.

    However,...

  • Applying without a valid biometric residence card (non EEA family members)

  • Applications for family members of dual EEA/UK nationals (Lounes)

    If the non-EEA family member has been issued with a PR card, there is no need to use the Lounes paper application. They can apply in the usual way, using their PR card number to prove relationship and residence.


    See:

  • Dependent relatives (extended family members) - It is no longer possible to apply via this route

    Unfortunately, the option to apply for extended family members and dependent relatives ended at the end of 2020, applications for EEA family permits and residence cards are no longer being accepted.

    Extended family members who made an application for a family permit or residence card before the end of 2020 can still use this document to apply for pre-settled status.
