European nationals have the rights to move freely in the UK under the free movement principles of the European regulations. Under European regulations, 2006 (EEA Reg), European nationals have the rights of entry to the UK just as much as British citizens have rights to enter other European countries. This is called the initial rights of residence. EU nationals and their family members have the right to remain and work in the United Kingdom.
The following are the various applications required by the EEA nationals and their family members to make available to the Home Office, UK Visas and Immigration:
- Registration certificate – EEA Nationals
- Permanent Residence – for EEA Nationals
- EEA Family Permit – for family members of an EEA national
- Residence Card – for family members of an EEA national
- Retaining Rights of Residence – for family members of an EEA national after the demise or divorce of/with the European national.
- Derivative Residence Card as a primary Carer
- Residence Card as an extended family member
An individual will have a right of appeal against the refusal of his or her family permit application, if the application for family permit has been refused by the Entry Clearance Officer (ECO).
- An appeal for the refusal letter must be filed within 28 days with the First Tier Tribunal and this should be filed from the date of reception of the refusal letter.
