Family Permit

You may be able to get a EUSS family permit to come to the UK if you are the family member of an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen, or a ‘person of Northern Ireland. The family members of some British citizens can also get a family permit. You must be outside the UK to apply for EUSS family permit.

Eligibility Requirements

You must satisfy the decision maker that

  • You are the joining family member of a relevant EEA citizen (an EEA citizen who holds either Settled Status or Pre-Settled Status, or has applied and is waiting for a decision);

  • You will be accompanying the EEA citizen to the UK or joining them in the UK within 6 months of the date of application;

  • Your family relationship began prior to 31 December 2020

    Family members of British citizens (Surinder Singh applications)

    If you are the family member of a British citizen and lived with that British citizen in an EEA country, and your relationship with them started before 1 February 2020, the deadline to apply for a family permit to accompany or join a British citizen family member returning to the UK was 29 March 2022 (also known as ‘Surinder Singh’ applications). If there are ‘reasonable grounds’ for not making an application or returning before 29 March 2022, or if your relationship started on or after 1 February 2020 and there were ‘reasonable grounds’ for not returning to the UK before 31 December 2020, a late application for a family permit may be able to be made.
