What is EEA UK family permit?
The EEA UK family permit is granted to a person who is not a citizen and does not stay in those areas listed above but has a spouse or a civil partner who is a member or a citizen of the EEA. In situations where children or dependents are involved, they, too, can be included in this family visa.People who are not already in the UK are always advised to apply for an entry clearance through the responsible UK authorities in their home country before they can embark on travelling to the UK.
RequirementsThere are several different requirements for families who already live in the UK and for families outside the UK. These important conditions must be met before they are issued the EEA Family Visa.
The EU citizen in the family must already be exercising any of his or her treaty rights. It means that the EU citizen must either be employed, self-employed, must be a student or must be independent and self-sufficient, that is the citizen must be able to cater for him or her and the family.
This five-year permit for the non-citizen allows unrestricted employment anywhere in the UK for such a person. Although this permit is only issued for five years, it can be changed into indefinite leave to remain, as long as the relationship is still on-going after those five years.
However, for families that live outside the UK, the following holds for their UK Immigration;
A family permit, in this case, will be issued for six months for the couples to get jobs. However, it is expected of the EU citizen within those months to apply for the residential permit, while the spouse applies for the five-year family permit.
