If you are a European national living in the UK, make sure you apply for EU settled status by 30 June 2021.
After June 2021, European Treaty rights for the free movement of people will no longer apply in the UK, and European Citizens will come under normal immigration rules.
The EU Settled Status (EUSS) Scheme allows European Nationals living in the UK to obtain permanent immigration status.
If you have not obtained an EU settled status your rights to housing, healthcare, education and access to certain benefits may be affected.
There are 2 status types Settled and Pre-Settled.
- Settled Status: If you have already been resident in the country for 5+ years you can apply for settled status and will be granted indefinite leave to remain.
- Pre-Settled Status: If you have been resident in the country for less than 5 years you can apply for pre-settled status and will be granted limited leave to remain, but you can apply for settled status at your 5 year point.
