European Union Settlement Scheme (EUSS)

EU Settlement Scheme

Apply to stay in the UK after Brexit

The EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS) allows EU (European Union), EEA (European Economic Area) or Swiss citizens and their families to apply to continue living and working in the UK after 30 June 2021. (If the UK leaves the EU without a deal the deadline for applying will be 31 December 2020). It is free to apply to the scheme.

Full information about who needs to apply, and how they can do so, can be found on the UK Government website.

EEA citizens who have Permanent Residency will need to either apply to the EU Settlement Scheme or apply for British Citizenship before the above dates.

Irish citizens, or EU / EEA / Swiss citizens with Indefinite Leave to Remain, don’t have to apply under EUSS but can do so if they wish.

EUSS appointments are cancelled at present because of coronavirus, but applicants can get help on the Gov UK website.
