Q1 Are my documents in order? According to https://www.gov.uk/family-permit/documents-you-must-provide, you should submit :

  • a valid passport
  • evidence of your relationship to your EEA family member, for example a marriage certificate, civil partnership certificate, birth certificate or proof that you’ve lived together for 2 years if unmarried
  • your family member’s valid passport or national identity card (or a certified copy if you cannot provide the original)
  • proof of your dependency if you’re dependent on your EEA family member

Q2 Any idea how long it takes? Typical processing times appear to be up to 15 days https://visa-processingtimes.homeoffice.gov.uk/y

It’s not 100% clear from your question but I’m assuming you and your family reside in Nigeria.

  • Yes we live together in Nigeria
