GUIDANCE NOTES FOR APPLYING AS A EUROPEAN NATIONAL OR AS THE FAMILY MEMBER OF A EUROPEAN NATIONAL

Version 1.0, July 2009

Please note that this material is not applicable for Bulgarian and Romanian nationals, who should go to www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/eucitizens/bulgarianandromaniannationals/ for further information.
