EEA Applications

The European Economic Area (EEA) is made up of member states of the European Union and European Free Trade Area. Citizens of countries in the EEA can move freely between the member states and live where they choose. EEA Nationals have the right to take a job, seek employment, or set up a business in any EEA country. There has recently been an increase in the number of non EU family and extended family members of European Citizens making application to stay in the UK. Andrew Williams Solicitors has a EU team of advisers that just specialise in those types of applications. Our team at present can boast of 100% success rate with such application even where we are instructed to represent client's at Immigration Tribunals or in Judicial Review proceedings.

There are a number of immigration agreementa between the EU and other countries that can give advantages to their citizens in movement and employment. These countries include Turkey, Romania, Bulgaria, Crotia, Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, Switzerland and African, Caribbean and Pacific countries.


EEA Nationals are allowed to bring their family members to any EEA country. Family members can apply for a residence permit that proves they have the right to live in the UK. If a non-EEA family member is accompanying the EEA member they must have an EEA Family Permit. In the UK non-EEA family members can apply for a Residence Document that proves their right to live with their family in the UK. We can advise on the correct documentation needed for your situation.


An EEA national can apply for permission to live indefinitely in the UK if they have been working in the UK for at least four years, or if they have held a residence permit for five years.
