UK visit with non-EU previously EUFAM wife

Post by mmsa » Mon Mar 22, 2021 7:58 pm

Hi,

I am a British citizen and my wife is non-EU, she is currently under the visa scheme that replaced the EUFAM after brexit and has a permanent residency permit in the republic of ireland.

Before brexit we used to visit my parents with no issues, wondering now that brexit has happened, does she need a visa and what type of visa. We visit usually for less than a week.

I am currently working full time in Ireland but may move back to the UK in a number of months/years, what advice can you give me about preparing for this in terms of wife's visa.

TIA

She will need a standard visitor visa for short-term visits. 95 pounds for 6 months. https://www.gov.uk/standard-visitor-visa

Regarding moving back to the UK, see the page below which has all the details you need, including the deadline and documentary requirements.

If you don’t move back before the deadline, and if no other agreement is reached between the UK and EU at that time, she will need to apply for a family visa (which takes way longer to process and requires more documents and is more expensive):
