European Union Law

EU Settlement Scheme

EU citizens and any of their non-EU family members who arrived in the UK before 31 December 2020 and have been continuously resident in the UK for five years by the time of their application, will be eligible for settled status enabling them to stay indefinitely.

EU citizens and their family members who arrive in the UK by 31 December 2020 but will not yet have been continuously resident here for five years by the time of their application, will be eligible for “pre-settled status”.

This will allow them to stay until they have reached a five-year period that they need. After that, they will be able to apply for settled status.

Close family members (a spouse, civil partner, durable partner, dependent child or grandchild, and dependent parent or grandparent) living overseas will also be able to join their EU citizen sponsor here after 31 December 2020, so long as the relationship existed on that date. Future children will also be protected.

Please keep in mind that failing to apply will mean that they end up with no legal right to live and work in this country. 

Every EU national and their family will need to make an application before the deadline of 30 June 2021.
