Directive, I am rather puzzled with your advice.How do my family members apply for a family permit?
They can apply for the EEA Family Permit at any British mission overseas that offers a full service visa-issuing office. If they are applying from within the EEA, they will need to show that they are living legally in an EEA member state.
They can apply in a number of ways, for example by post, by courier, in person and online. The visa section will tell them about the ways in which they can apply.
Some visa sections will only accept applications made online. To find out if you can apply for your visa online plesse visit www.visa4uk.fco.gov.uk
Thanks Directive for your inputs.Directive/2004/38/EC wrote:What specifically are you puzzled by?
The Irish government, in it's wisdom, wants to require prior residence in an EU member state. This is a way of having been legally resident in the UK for a weekend (or even overnight).
