New version of form EEA4 for non-EEA nationals joined EEA family members


To be used for permanent residence pleas on or after 30 November 2010

29th November 2010: Nationals of countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA) applying for permanent residence in the UK will have to use a new version of application form.


The UK Border Agency has asserted that the revised form (version 11/2010) should be used for all applications made on or after 30 November 2010.

The UKBA added: The new version of application form EEA4 can be used by the nationals of countries outside the EEA to apply for permanent residence in the UK, if they are the family members of EEA nationals.

`We have revised the form following a request from the Parliamentary and Health Ombudsman that Section 6 – documents and photographs be made clearer. The form now accurately reflects all of the documentation required to support an application for a permanent residence card,’ the UKBA has added.
