Check if you need a UK visa: Information based on your answers

You’ll need a visa to join your family or partner in the UK

You must usually apply for a family visa.

When you can apply for a free permit instead

You may be able to apply for a free family permit instead of a visa. Your close family member must both:

  • be a citizen of an EU country, Switzerland, Norway, Iceland or Liechtenstein
  • have been living in the UK before 1 January 2021

The family permit lets you live, work and study in the UK for up to 6 months (this may be 4 months if you come to the UK after 1 April 2021). You may then be able to apply to the free EU Settlement Scheme to stay longer in the UK.
