Are You An EEA National Looking To Apply For British Citizenship?

Are you a European citizen concerned about your status in the United Kingdom post-Brexit? Qualified European citizens employed in the UK are being strongly advised to apply now for permanent residency and British citizenship.

Permanent Residency And British Citizenship

Permanent residency in the United Kingdom refers to a person’s visa status and proves your right to live in the UK for life. There are no limitations attached to your life in the UK and you’re at liberty to exit and enter as you wish. However, if you’re not in the country for more than two years, you could lose your permanent residency. You will need to apply for an EEA Permanent Residence Card to acquire permanent residency.

Having an EEA Permanent Residence Card means you can then apply for British Citizenship satisfying all requirements.

Who Can Apply? Check Your Eligibility

You must:

  • Have lived lawfully in the UK for at least five years and have an EEA Permanent Residence Card.
  • Be able to meet the residency requirements.
  • Be able to satisfy the English language requirements.

  • Intend to live in the UK.
