You can apply for a residence card if you’re both:
from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) the family member, or extended family member, of an EEA national who is a permanent resident or ‘qualified person’
I am from outside the European Economic Area but I have relative members: my aunt, uncle and cousin who are Netherlands citizens. My aunt is a former Malayisian (now should be considered as Dutch after more than 30 years living in Netherlands), while my uncle and cousin are Dutch.
So am I eligible for a UK residence card? But they don't live in the UK. They live in Netherlands.
But this is unclear:
extended family member, of an EEA national who is a permanent resident - is it a
permanent resident of UK or of any country of EEA?
