You can apply for an EEA family Visa to come to the UK if you’re both:
There are other ways you may be eligible, for example:
This EEA Family Visa will grant the applicant entry into any one of the EU countries for a period of 6 months in which time the EEA applicant will have to apply for their residence Visa. This EEA Family Visa will be valid for 5 years and will allow the holder to live and work freely in the UK, without any restrictions. After 4 of the 5 years, the residence Visa holder will be able to apply for permanent residency or Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) for one final year. On completion of this final year, they may be eligible to apply for their British Citizenship and passport. The applicant will still have to satisfy certain criteria in order to receive their British Citizenship.
The EEA Family Visa can be applied for outside of the UK whether the EU passport holder is already in the UK or will be travelling with the applicant. Again, it is important that the applicant provide evidence that they have accommodation and financial support in the UK before they apply for the Visa
Cape Town - The Department of Home Affairs (DHA) processed 10 643 newcomer asylum applications in five refugee reception centres during the 2022/23 financial year, and rejected 8 948 of them, Minister Aaron Motsoaledi revealed in Parliament. Although lobby groups are pushing against what they deem to be anti-foreigner sentiment from the DHA, a city activist grouping says Motsoaledi’s figures were slightly down from last year. The term “refugees” refers to people who have fled wars or persecution, while “asylum seekers” describes people who claim to be refugees but whose claim has not been reviewed. DA MP Adrian Roos asked Motsoaledi for the number of newcomer asylum applications processed for each refugee reception centre in the previous financial year, and how many were rejected as “unfounded”, “manifestly unfounded”, and those granted.
