Biometric information for non-EEA nationals: form
EEA(PR)
Note: this section applies to non-EEA nationals applying for a permanent residence card only.
Do not complete this section if you are an EEA national applying for a document certifying
permanent residence – proceed straight to section 1 instead.
If you are, or anyone included in this application is, a non-EEA national applying for a permanent
residence card, you must complete this section in full. If you do not, we may reject your
application and return it to you without consideration.
Introduction
In accordance with the Immigration (Provision of Physical Data) Regulations 2006 (as amended),
any non-EEA national applying for a residence card as evidence of their right to reside under
the Immigration (European Economic Area) Regulations 2016 (‘the EEA Regulations’) must give
their biometric information (ngerprints and a digital photograph) before their application will be
considered. You must complete this section fully to ensure that we have the correct information
when you attend your biometric appointment.
When we receive your application, we will send you a biometric enrolment letter. This will instruct
you (and any non-EEA family members included in your application) to make an appointment
at a designated Post Oce to have your biometric information recorded. You will be charged an
additional handling fee for this service, payable to the Post Oce Ltd. You must pay the fee by
cash or debit card when you attend your biometric enrolment appointment.
Do not send the biometric enrolment fee with your application fee.
Your application may be rejected as invalid if you do not enrol your biometric information
when requested. For more information about biometrics, please visit www.gov.uk/
biometric-residence-permits
Denitions
In this section, the term ‘residence card (biometric format)’ means a residence card, permanent
residence card or derivative residence card issued under the EEA Regulations after you have
given your biometric information. This is issued as a separate biometric card and not as a
vignette or sticker in your passport, travel document, or other document.
If you currently have, or last had either:
a residence card (biometric format) conrming your right to reside under the EEA Regulations
a biometric residence permit conrming that you had been granted leave to remain under the
Immigration Rules or Immigration Act 1971
you must include this document with your application (unless you have already returned the
document to us).
