We are family – I’ve got all my passports with me
09 February 2017
An EEA national using the online application form for a registration certificate or for a document certifying permanent residence can now add their close and extended family members to their online form.
The whole family can then use the European Passport Return Service to submit their documents via a local Registrar’s office. The Registrar will copy the passports of the main applicant and of all the family members included on the form and return the passports to them straight away. Only applicants who use the online forms can use the European Passport Return Service.
The information the Home Office has published indicates that family members applying separately from the EEA national cannot use the online forms.
