A new version of application form EEA4 has been published by the UKBA. The form can be used by non-European Economic Area (EEA) nationals to apply for permanent residence in the UK if they qualify as family members of an EEA national.
The form has been revised following a request from the Parliamentary and Health Ombudsman that ‘Section 6 – documents and photographs’ needed clarification. The form now accurately reflects all of the documentation required to support an application for a permanent residence card.
European casework instructions to be followed by the agency are available here. The Immigration (European Economic Area) Regulations 2006 and the Free Movements Directive define the framework behind the EEA4 form.
The agency requires that the new EE4 form (version 11/2010) should be used for all applications made on or after 30 November 2010.
