Our Do It Yourself (DIY) service is 100% accurate, and is based on content supplied by our Immigration partner for the UK. The Pack is easy to download, and provides for a step-by-step guide to completing a successful application. You can avoid the cost of engaging the services of an Immigration Agent and yet still get their expertise and experience!
This EU Partner 5 Year EEA Residence Card (often referred to as a EU Marriage Visa, EU Partner Visa or EU Spouse Visa) is based on a valid relationship (married or unmarried, including Same Sex relationships) with a person who holds a European Union (EU) Passport. It is issued only once the applicant has arrived in the UK (technically, within the first week in the UK) on a EU Partner Visa.
The Card is valid for 5 years, after which the holder can apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR).
