They need to apply for an EU Family permit to ensure entry to the UK

https://www.gov.uk/family-permit

It costs you nothing and if granted ensures entry.......

They actually do not want an EEA Family Permit (because Switzerland is not in the EEA) but rather a Swiss Family Permit:

https://www.gov.uk/government/public...y-permit-eun03

It is assessed under the same rules as the EEA Family Permit so Crawford's link applies for the requirements, but they need to specifically select the 'Swiss Family Permit' when they submit the application instead of 'EEA Family Permit'.

EEA family permit
Apply for the EEA Family Permit if you’re a close or extended family member of an EEA or Swiss national.

You can be a close or ‘extended’ family member - for example a brother, sister, aunt, uncle, cousin, nephew or niece.

Hi Clever & Octopus,
Thank you for your replies so glad.

but to be honest with you I am so confused regarding your message and also on the link where I check I got a bit confuse

if I could ask you a favour could you please explain me in a simple way, just to explain you
my parents are british live in UK since last 20 years
I am settle here in UK now
my brother is on swiss spouse visa (Lives in Swiss with her wife, planning to settle to UK)
my brother wife is a swiss national works as an accountant
so on the links I found below

There are 2 different family permits:
•the EU Settlement Scheme family permit
•the EEA family permit

which one is that, and from were they can apply ?

Apply for an EEA family permit instead if you’re not a close family member of the EEA or Swiss national or if they do not have ‘settled’ or ‘pre-settled’ status under the EU Settlement Scheme.

If the wife does not have 'settled' or 'pre-settled status' (and as they both still live in Switzerland then I doubt it) then your brother should apply for an EEA Family permit.

I have got 1 more question, and that's about ~National Insurance as they both are coming to UK next month for 3 weeks and my brother is urging his wife to apply for National Ins number so it will be ease for them when they move to UK in Future,

Will there be any problem if Wife apply for NIN during this next month 3 week trip to UK??
