Applicants working legally in the UK for 1 year without intermissions can apply for an EEA residence permit. Once they have this, applicants can work towards ILR in the UK, (Permanent residency) and they can also make an application for British naturalization as a UK citizen.

Candidates should register on the WRS as soon as they find work. Failure to do so within the first month will put a stop to them continuing to work legally within the UK.
