EEA Family Permits Changed in the UK

The new EU Free Movement of Persons Directive came in to force in the UK earlier this year on April 30 and this will bring changes to the application process of family members of EEA nationals working or studying in the UK.

It will now be possible for civil partners and extended family members of EEA nationals to qualify for the Family Permit if they meet requirements of being in a relationship recognized by the UK.

Different restrictions will apply for family members of EEA nationals who are studying in the UK.
