Are you an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen?
If you’re an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen, you and your family can apply to the EU Settlement Scheme to continue living in the UK. You can apply for either settled status (SS) or pre-settled status (pre-SS). The sooner you make your application the more likely you will be to receive pre-settled or settled status before the cut-off date of 1 July 2021.
There is no cost for the application.
You may be able to stay in the UK without applying – for example, if you’re an Irish citizen or have been granted Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR). Or if you have been in the UK since before 1988, you might choose to apply via the Windrush scheme.
Our EU Settlement Scheme Adviser - Mampo Guillet has many years' experience in helping people with immigration issues and is here to provide support to EU, EEA and Swiss citizens (and their non–EU family members) through information-giving, advice, and help in completing applications.
Please get in touch with Mampo either by email email@example.com or by calling one of our freephone numbers 0808 109 2056, 0808 800 0510 or 0808 800 0511.
