Nationals of the European Economic Area (EEA) are eligible for residence in the United Kingdom based on the EEA Regulations. In addition, the EEA Regulations contain provisions allowing for family members and extended family members of an EEA National to reside with them in the United Kingdom. The criteria for each application are complex and require specific documentation to be provided in any application. Failure to comply with even one formality can result in a refusal.
At Kings Cross Barristers, our team has significant expertise in making EEA applications and representing at appeals at the First-tier Tribunal and Upper Tribunal, as well as challenging decisions by way of judicial review. We have experience in making applications for registration as a Qualified Person, residence cards as a family member of an EEA national, and certifying Permanent Residence.
