Comprehensive sickness insurance for family members of EEA students

New Home Office policy on comprehensive sickness insurance for family members of EEA students following on from amendments to the regulations in April 2015. It includes advance warning, basically:

Whilst changes to the Regulations were made on 6th April, for operational reasons, the requirement for family members of students to hold CSI will only be applied in practice from 22nd June 2015. This note is being communicated to customers on the gov.uk website in advance of this date to enable customers to comply with the requirement when applying for residence documentation from the Home Office.
