EU Permanent Residence Documents
It is still possible for EU citizens and their family members to apply for a document that confirms they are a permanent resident under the EEA Regulations. There may be cases where such a document is the best choice because the date the person became a permanent resident in the UK can be backdated, if that was some time ago. This may allow them to apply to naturalise as a British citizen immediately rather than having to wait a year.
Generally, however, now that the UK has left the EU and is in the transition period, it would be advisable to apply under the EU Settlement Scheme.
If you are unsure about which type of application to make and need legal advice, please contact us.
