Get a replacement residence card

You need to reapply for your residence card or permanent residence card if it’s lost, stolen, expired or damaged.

You’ll have to apply for an EEA family permit if you’ve lost your card outside the UK. You’ll then have to reapply for your residence card or permanent residence when you’re back in the UK.

You can apply for a new residence card or permanent residence card if the passport containing your old residence card has expired - you cannot transfer it to a new passport.

If you do not get a new card for your new passport, you’ll have to carry both your expired passport and your new passport when you travel.
