EU Settlement Scheme for European UK residents
Published: 29 January 2021
EU, EEA or Swiss citizens who were living in the UK on or before 31 December 2020 need to apply to remain in the UK after 30 June 2021.
Applicants will either get: ‘Settled status’ also known as Indefinite leave to remain or enter the UK, or ‘Pre-settled status’, also known as limited leave, to remain or enter into the UK. After 5 years of living in the UK, applicants can apply for settled status.
The EU Settlement Scheme not only gives people the right to live and work in the UK, but also provides access to free NHS healthcare, enrolment to education or continued education, and the ability to travel in and out of the UK.
Applicants must complete three key steps to apply, by showing proof of identity, proof of residence and a criminality check.
For further information on how to apply, visit the EU settlement scheme pages on the gov.uk website.
The deadline for applications is 30 June 2021.
