An EEA National is entitled to enter and reside in the United Kingdom for a period not exceeding three months beginning on the date he is admitted to the United Kingdom provided he holds a valid identification issued by an EEA State.
An EEA National can then remain in the United Kingdom for an indefinite period as long as he remains as a qualified person.
In order to be a qualified person, the EEA National must meet the following general requirements:
Family members of an EEA National who is a qualified person can apply for a Residence Permit or Permanent Residence to remain in the United Kingdom.
Family members include: spouse, civil partner, direct descendants (under 21) of the EEA National or spouse/civil partner, dependent direct relatives of the EEA National or his spouse/civil partner and extended family members.
Family members of United Kingdom Nationals can also apply for a Residence Card the UK National is exercising his Treaty Rights.
Furthermore, a family member of an EEA National who has retained rights of residence can apply for a Residence Card by meeting the necessary requirements (through divorce, bereavment, domestic violence…).
Moreover, a family member of an EEA National can also have derivative right of residence if he meets the relevant requirements.
