EEA Nationals

If you’re an EU citizen, you and your family will be able to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme to continue living in the UK after 30 June 2021.

If you’re an EU citizen or a family member of an EU citizen, you’ll usually need to apply if you want to stay in the UK after 30 June 2021. You will be granted either pre-settled status or settled status as a result of a successful application.

The scheme is now open and the deadline for applying will be 30 June 2021. However, if the UK leaves the EU without a deal then the deadline to apply will be 31 December 2020.

Settled Status

You’ll usually get settled status if you started living in the UK by 31 December 2020 and have lived in the UK for a continuous 5-year period (‘continuous residence’)

Pre-Settled Status

If you do not have 5 years’ continuous residence, you’ll usually get ‘pre-settled status’ instead. You can stay in the UK for a further 5 years from the date you get pre-settled status after which you must apply again for settled status.
