EEA – permanent residence applications

Applicants use Form EEA (PR) to apply for, replace or renew a document certifying permanent residence or a permanent residence card.
On 12 April 2017 the Home Office updated its guidance notes setting out information on what an applicant should send with their application. See https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/608088/Form-EEA-PR-guidance-notes-v3.pdf. The guidance notes now include a table of examples of people in different circumstances. This acts as a helpful guide for applicants thinking about the evidence they might need to provide specific to their own circumstances.
The documents and evidence sent must be originals. The Home Office makes an exception for online applicants who have their passports verified, copied and sent to the Home Office by a local authority participating in the European Passport Return Service. Official English translations provided by a qualified translator must be sent with all documents not in English or Welsh.
