The EU Settlement Scheme
If you’re an EU citizen, or know someone who is, you need to apply for EU Settled Status before the deadline 30 June 2021. Make sure you (and your children) don’t miss the deadline to prove your right to live, work and study in the UK.
The EU Settlement Scheme is a process for obtaining a new immigration status following Brexit, for those EU citizens who were in the UK before 30 December 2020. All EU citizens and their third country national family members living in the UK before 11pm on 31 December 2020 (the end of the transition period) must apply for pre-settled or settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme in order to carry on living lawfully in the UK. Everyone, including children, must apply to the EUSS on or before 30 June 2021.
