How to Apply for Retained Right of Residence

The application for retained right of residence can only be submitted by family members of the EEA National, and only if the relationship has broken down.

If you previously had a right to reside in the UK as the family member of an EEA national, you can apply for a retained right of residence visa if those have either:

  • had permanent right of residence in the UK

  • was a ‘qualified person’ (a worker, student, self-employed person, self-sufficient person or someone looking for work) in the UK

Alongside this, you may have retained right of residence if:

  • A marriage or civil partnership that’s either yours or another member of your family’s has ended in a divorce, annulment or dissolution.

  • Your partner is deceased and you’ve lived in the UK for at least 1 year before their death.

  • you’re the child of an EEA national who has died or left the UK, or the child of their spouse or civil partner, or former spouse or civil partner. Or you were in education when that person  passed or left the UK, and you continue to be in education

  • you’re the parent and have custody of a child who has a retained right of residence because they’re in education in the UK.

You must provide the following documentation

  • a valid passport

  • 2 passport size colour photographs

  • evidence of your relationship to the EEA national. This could be a marriage certificate, civil partnership certificate, birth certificate or proof that you’ve lived together for two years.

  • A passport or identity card giving proof of your family member’s identity,
