EU settlement scheme - local help available
If you're an EU, EEA or Swiss Citizen, you and your family can now apply to the EU settlement scheme to continue living and working in the UK after 30 June 2021. It is free to apply.
Apply online to the Home Office for the right to stay in the UK via the settled or pre-settled status scheme.
To apply, you'll need to fill in a short online application form using a computer, tablet or mobile phone. Applicants will be asked to prove:
- their identity with a valid ID (e.g. passport or national identity card)
- residency in the UK
- relationship to a family member from the EU living in the UK, if they want to come to the UK from outside the EU
The UK Government will advise you if they need any further information.
