Last call for EU Settlement Scheme

  • Posted

There is an important deadline approaching for the family members of qualifying British citizens to apply for pre-settled or settled status in the UK in line with the EU Settlement Scheme following Brexit. 

Are you the family member, or extended family member, of a British citizen who was working, studying or self-sufficient in another European country prior to 31 December 2020?  Was the other European country where you were living with the qualifying British citizen your main home together? The time is now to explore your options and eligibility to apply to live, work and study in the UK.

While the deadline for all other applicants under the EU Settlement Scheme was 30 June 2021, and late applications with 'reasonable grounds' for the delay are still permitted by the Home Office, the above-mentioned category of people can still apply to the EU Settlement Scheme comfortably before their deadline of 29 March 2022.

These types of immigration applications are more complex and cannot be made by way of an online immigration application form.
