Online application forms for EEA family members

February 28, 2017 | Immigration, Latest Thinking, News

The Home Office has introduced online application forms for EEA family members in relation to Certificate of Registration and Permanent Residence Applications. This service was earlier only available to those from the European Economic Area and were single. Anyone applying with family members had to applying using the regular and lengthy paper forms.

This online application service has now been rolled out to make it available to families, also applying for a Certificate of Registration or Permanent Residence at the same time as the main applicant.

The main benefits are, that the forms are easier to comprehend, shorter and much less time consuming. In addition to this, applicants can also utilise the European Passport Return Service, which enables them to submit their applications without a passport, which has been an ongoing issue with EEA applications as they take around 4-6 months to consider and the passport return service can take as long as 20 working days before your passport is returned to you.
