At Curzon Green we offer a variety of services including applying for European Economic Area (EEA) family permits and the EU Settled and Pre-Settled Status Scheme.

EEA Family Permits

In order to apply for an EEA family permit to come to the UK you must be outside the EEA and the family member or ‘extended’ family member of an EEA or Swiss national. (Please note this excludes UK nationals).

There are other ways you may be eligible, for example:
  • With a ‘derivative right of residence' - you are the carer of someone who has the right to be in the UK, the carer's child, or the child of an EEA national who previously worked in the UK;
  • If you can make a ‘Surinder Singh’ application after living in another EEA country with a British family member; or
  • With a ‘retained right of residence’ - you have the right to stay in the UK as the family member of an EEA national who has died, left the UK or is no longer your spouse or civil partner .
An EEA family permit is valid for 6 months. You can leave and enter the UK as many times as you need within that time. You must apply for a residence card if you are the ‘extended’ family member of an EEA national and want to stay in the UK after your EEA family permit has expired.

EU Settled and Pre-Settled Status Scheme

After 31 December 2020, the law is going to change and it will be compulsory for EU citizens who wish to remain living in the UK, along with their family members, to apply for residency.

To be granted settled status, you will need to provide evidence that you have been residing in the UK for five consecutive years.

If you have not been residing in the UK for five consecutive years, but you have arrived on or before 31 December 2020, you may apply for pre-settled status. Once you reach five years of continous residence, you may then apply for settled status, which is the equivalent of indefinite leave to remain. 

You can contact our offices today for up to date advice on the new 'settled' and 'pre-settled' statuses in the UK or see further government updates at: https://www.gov.uk/uk-residence-eu-citizens.
