I (EEA national) and my spouse non-EEA are considering moving to the UK and residing under the
self-sufficiency rules. If she applies for the Residency card, do we need to have CSI for the full 5 years or is an annual automatic renewal CSI valid. I don't believe that any provider health provides insurance for 5 years but only a year at a time.

Thank you for your question.  To legally live in the UK, you spouse is likely to have to prove they have Comprehensive Sickness Insurance for five years.  Someone will be in touch with you shortly to see how we can help you further.
