Immigration Solicitors in Manchester and London Specialising in EEA Family Permits
Our Immigration team can help you apply for an EEA Family Permit which allows non-EEA family members entry to join EEA nationals who currently or intend to reside in the UK.
Technically, you do not need a visa as permission to enter can be made at the border. However, certain airlines will refuse to carry you if you do not have a permit and immigration officials may refuse you access. Therefore, it is better to have a permit before you travel.
An EEA family permit is valid for six months and can be re-applied for or converted to an EEA Family Residence Card via an application.
As with all other types of visas, there are certain requirements that need to be met and our expert team of immigration lawyers can advise you as to whether you meet these requirements and what documentation you will need to send with your application.
Unfortunately, refusal for an EEA family permit or an EEA Residence Card can happen even if all documentation is correct. Monarch’s expert team of immigration solicitors can assist in understanding why you have been refused and support you in any appeal.
There are many reasons for refusal, such as:
- Failing to include the correct documentation;
- Failing to show you are exercising your treaty rights;
- Questions over an alleged marriage/relationship;
The best way to avoid these reasons is to seek legal advice before you submit your application.

It is free. However, if the application is refused there is no right of appeal, except for an Administrative Review. Therefore, it is vital your application is correct.
This depends. You may be exercising your right under EU law as a job seeker. Our team can analyse your position and advise you on this.
This will depend on why type of application you have made. For an EEA Family Permit, only the EEA national will attend. If it is for an EEA Residence Permit, then both you and the EEA nation can attend. If you elect to have the appeal heard on paper, then no one will have to attend.
