This document will prove the right to live in the UK for every citizen, and our immigration lawyers in London will help you with guidance and legal assistance, in order to receive the best possible result.
Essential conditions when you apply for residency permit in UK
Any individual can obtain the residency permit in UK if he meets these important conditions:
• he lived with a EEA (European Economic Area) family member for a minimum of 5 years in the UK;
• he held a valid EEA family visa or a residence card;
• he has a marriage or a civil partnership visa.
Citizens of EEA and EU countries, along with their family members, were until 12 November 2015 eligible once they have reached the necessary 5 years of residence in the UK, held permanent residence for the last 12 months of that time, and encountered all the other conditions. It is good to know that Brexit didn't change the present circumstances for the citizens mentioned above who wish to receive a residence permit in the UK. The immigration solicitor in London will legally assist you, if you want to apply for a residency permit in the country.
Other details regarding residency permit in UK
The residency permit in the UK is something that any individual obtains automatically according to the country’s rules and regulations, if the conditions are encountered; there is no need to officially apply for it and it is not deliberated or settled by the British consultants, but by automatic process of EU regulation.
EU or EEA residents do not need residence permits, but on the other hand, if you wish for non-EEA national members of your family to enter in the UK, you will need to apply for an EEA family visa. It is good to know that you can only apply for this kind of visa in your home country.
