Apply for an EEA Family Permit for your Non-EEA National Family Member
A non EEA National family member of an EEA National can apply for an EEA Family Permit to join their partner in the UK until June 2021 if Britain leaves the EU with a deal or until Dec 2020 if Britain leaves the EU with a deal.
The EEA National must be exercising their Treaty Rights if they have been in the UK for 3 months or more. They must be a qualified person as per the EEA Immigration Rules 2016 which means the EEA National must be exercising their Free Movement Rights in any of the categories below:
- Self Employed

- Job seeker
So if you are an EEA NAtional and have a family member or an extended family member that you would like to sponsor to join you in the UK, then now is the time before Britain leaves the EU.
You can sponsor any of the following relatives:
- Your Family Member
- Civil Partner
- Your Extended Family Member
- Unmarried Partner
- Brother or sister
- Aunt/ Uncle
- Brother or Sister in Law
We have helped many EU Nationals be united with their non-EEA Family members in the UK with an EEA Family Permit. The EEA Family Permit can be applied from anywhere in the world and is valid for 6 months. With the 6 months EEA Family permit you can enter and exit the UK as many times as you like as long as it remains valid. You have the right to work full-time on an EEA Family Permit. Before the expiry of the EEA Family Permit you will need to apply for an EEA Residence Card to secure your stay in the UK for 5 years. Following this you can apply for Pre-Settled Status.
EU Citizens after Brexit can apply for the EU Settlement Scheme Family Permit.
