EU Settlement Scheme Application Deadline (30 June 2021)
The EU Settlement Scheme which was set up under the terms of the UK’s Withdrawal Agreement with the EU, applies to citizens of the EU and EFTA who came to the UK before the end of the Brexit Transition period at the end of December 2020. Similar arrangements apply for UK citizens who are living and working in continental Europe.
The EU and EFTA residents in the UK who are affected by this need to apply if they wish to retain their rights to live, work and study in the UK. Some people are not aware that this applies to them, including even some elderly veterans of World War II who came to the UK long before the UK joined the EU. In addition, the children of some more recent arrivals, who have obtained rights to live and work in the UK, need to have individual applications made on their behalf in order to ensure that they will be able to access healthcare and education in the future.
A short video (3-4 minutes long) providing an overview of the EU Settlement Scheme and some of the issues involved is available on YouTube using the links provided below:
