4. EEA Nationals
We regularly advise EEA nationals on their immigration status in the UK. Following the Brexit vote to leave the EU on 21 June 2016, we assist EU nationals in their applications for permanent residence card. The rights of EU nationals have not changed following the Brexit vote. The UK government has encouraged EU nationals residing in the UK to apply for a permanent residence card as soon as possible due to the excessive number of applicants. Once you obtain a permanent residence card you will be protected following the exit from the EU and you will be automatically granted ‘settled status’.
We also assist family members and extended family members of EU nationals to apply for a residence card and reside in the UK with the EU national.
