Overview of the EU Settlement Scheme

EU citizens must be resident in the UK by 31 December 2020 to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme. Those who are resident before this date have until 30 June 2021 to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme.

If you’re an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen, you and your EU or non-EU family members can apply to the EU Settlement Scheme to continue living in the UK after 30 June 2021.
