EEA Family permit

Despite BREXIT, there will be no change in the rights of the EU citizens until 30 June 2021. That means as EU citizens or non-EU family members of EU citizen, you can have full rights which you would otherwise exercise before BREXIT. This implies that EU citizens including their non-EU relatives can continue to apply under EU Rules until 30 June 2021 if you have come to this country by 31 December 2020.

This also has the benefit of allowing extended family members to apply under this route, unlike the EU Settlement Scheme Family permit which allows only the close family members to apply. Extended family members mean your uncle, nephew, niece, etc who are dependent on you.

To apply under this route, you need to be outside the UK. You need also to prove that you are a member of the same household with the EEA citizens or a Swiss citizen or you are dependent on him since he has become an EEA citizen.

It is important to remember that EEA means European Economic Area and its citizens mean citizens of EU countries and Iceland, Norway, and Lichtenstein. Though Switzerland is not either part of the EU or EEA, it is nevertheless a country in the common market and its citizens generally enjoy the same immigration rights as EU or EEA countries.

Without a family permit, you are likely to be refused entry into the UK. The family permit allows you to stay in the UK for 6 months. You do not need to pay any fees to make an application for a family permit. There is no limit on the number of times you can come in and go out of the UK as long as you have a family permit.

With no fee at all, you can avail of this opportunity of visiting the UK as a non-EEA family member of EU citizens. The decision is also given very fast.
