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

It is taking longer than usual to process applications because of coronavirus (COVID-19).

If you’re an EUEEA or Swiss citizen, you and your family can apply to the EU Settlement Scheme to continue living in the UK after 30 June 2021. If your application is successful, you’ll get either settled or pre-settled status.

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.

When you can apply:

The EU Settlement Scheme is open. You can apply now if you meet the criteria.

The deadline for applying is 30 June 2021.

Which status you get may depend on when you apply.


It’s free to apply to the scheme.
