If you are not sure whether you need an EEA (European Economic Area) family permit to enter the UK, contact Oracle Solicitors today. Our dedicated immigration solicitors will be happy to check your situation, offer fast, friendly advice and help you with EEA Applications.
Do I Require an EEA Family Permit?
EU citizens do not need any special documents in order to come to the UK.
Whether they are coming for a short visit or to take up employment and settle in the UK, their entry to the UK is not subject to any visa requirements.
Family members of EU nationals who are not EU nationals themselves, generally require an EEA family permit to enter the UK with their EU national family member.
This family permit is issued overseas and works as a visa or entry clearance to the UK.
At the same time, an EEA residence document issued by another Member State may work as a family permit or as authorisation for entry to the UK. We would therefore advise those who intend to travel to the UK as the family members of EU nationals to check with us if they need the family permit.
