A derivative residence card provides you with an indirect right of residence in which your stay depends on the existing right of another individual. If you are a primary caregiver of someone with the right to reside in the UK or are the primary caregiver’s child then you can apply for a derivative right of residence in the UK. This card helps in proving that you have the right to live and work in the UK. You are eligible for this card if you live in the UK and are the primary caregiver of someone who has the right to live in the UK or the primary caregiver’s child or the child of the former EEA worker and are at school, college or university in the UK. If you are living in the UK then you don’t need a derivative residence card but it can help you with these things:
You and your family can apply for an EU settlement scheme if you wish to continue to live in the UK. Being a primary or main caregiver means you are someone’s caregiver or share the responsibility with someone else equally and you are their legal guardian or direct relative. In case you are outside the UK, you cannot apply for this card but you can apply for an EEA family permit. EEA derivative residence card is a card issued to non-EEA nationals on various bases and it shows that the right of residence is derived from EU law.
Children under 16 need to be accompanied by parents or their guardian or someone else who holds the legal responsibility of the child. In case the responsible adult is not the parent or guardian, they must be above 18 years of age and must be named on the application form.
You can apply for a residence card if you are from outside the EEA and are a family member or extended family member of an EEA national.
There is not much legal requirement to get a derivative residence card as the right of residence is taken from EU law. This card will act as your confirmation of your right to reside in the UK and with this, it will be easier for you to re-enter the UK and prove your right to work and get different services. Derivative residence card applications can be made only from within the UK and in case you are outside the UK then you need to apply for EEA Family Permit. You can get a residence card if you have permission to live in the UK for some other reason. You can continue to live in the UK as long as you remain eligible which means as long as the person you are the caregiver of continues to live in the UK. The time of the applicant which is spent in the UK with a derivative right of residence does not count in applying for permanent residence in the UK.
