Swiss and EEA (European Economic Area)/ EU (European Union) citizens have the right to live and work in the United Kingdom and this is called the right of residence. Our immigration solicitors in London offer suitable guidance and legal assistance if you are an EEA/EU or Swiss citizen and you wish to have residence in the UK. Asking for legal advice and assistance from a London immigration lawyer is quite important.
The right of residence in the UK
Residence permits in the UK
A residence permit will simply approve that you have a right to live in the United Kingdom under the European Community commandment. Our UK immigration lawyer will guide you through the entire process if you and your family members want to apply for a residence document. It is necessary to know that the residence permit is usually valid for five years. On the other hand, UK residence permits may be distributed for a shorter period if you are working or studying in the country for no more than 12 months. You should take into consideration that citizens with a short visit to the UK, looking for a job, or working for only three months, with no financial support will not receive the right of residence in the country. More details can be solicited from our London immigration lawyer. Our team is also able to provide details on how to become a permanent resident in UK.
Please feel free to contact our team of immigration solicitors in London, if you need extra information about the right of residence for EEA/EU or Swiss citizens.
