Apply to the EU Settlement Scheme (settled and pre-settled status)

If you’re an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen, you and your family can apply to the EU Settlement Scheme to continue living in the UK after 30.06.2021. If your application is successful, you’ll get either settled or pre-settled status.

The EEA includes the EU countries and also Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway.

You may be able to stay in the UK without applying – for example, if you’re an Irish citizen or have indefinite leave to remain.

You can sign up for email updates about the scheme.

When you can apply
The EU Settlement Scheme is open. You can apply now if you meet the criteria and you’re in the UK.

If you’re outside the UK, you’ll be able to apply from 09.04.2019.

The deadline for applying is 30.06.2021.

Which status you get may depend on when you apply.

If the UK leaves the EU without a deal
You will need to have been living in the UK by 12 April 2019 to apply. The deadline for applying will be 31 December 2020.

It’s free to apply to the scheme.
If you paid a fee when you applied to the EU Settlement Scheme, you’ll get a refund.
