EEA family permit

EEA Family Permit

The EEA (or European Economic Area) is an international agreement which enables the extension of the European Union’s single market to non-EU member parties. EEA nationals enjoy certain exclusive privileges.

With an EEA Family Permit, you are entitled to come in and out of the country as many times as you want for a period of 6 months.

One special benefit of being in the EEA is access to the EEA Family Permit; this is a special travelling document that is issued to the family members of EEA and Swiss nationals residing in the UK with the status of Permanent Residents.

The EEA Family Permit is not limited to immediate family members and maybe acquired by extended family members such as aunts, uncles, cousins, nephews, and nieces. The main purpose of this permit is to allow convenient movement of the family members of EEA nationals in the United Kingdom.

An EEA Family Permit is issued after the applicant has provided enough evidence of their relation to an EEA national residing in the United Kingdom; the application requires input from both the family members. The application is then submitted to immigration authorities who after processing will either approve or reject your application.

Unlike many other travelling and immigration documents issued by the United Kingdom, the EEA family permit is completely free and does not require any processing or application fee to be paid. Contact us on 07872504002 for 24-hour advice.
