If you are an EU, EEA and Swiss citizen or family member of EU, EEA or Swiss citizen living in the UK, You MUST Apply to the EEA Settlement Scheme before June 30th, 2021 to secure your continued stay in the UK.
We at Spring and Co Solicitors, are specialist solicitors dealing with all aspects of residence matters for EEA nationals and their family members including their non-EEA family members.
As a result of the Brexit referendum the rights of EU, EEA and Swiss citizens and heir family members will be changing after 30 June 2021. The UK will no longer be a party to the free movement of people so for EU, EEA and Swiss citizens and family members to remain in the UK legally after 30th June 2021 they will need to apply for the Settlement Scheme. Note that if you are an Irish Citizen you do not need to apply.
Settled and pre-Settled status
The UK government has now put in place a special category of leave for EU, EEA & Swiss nationals and their family members – Settled and pre-Settled status. Any EU, EEA or Swiss national wishing to remain in the UK after the date of the UK’s departure from the EU and expiry of the so far unilaterally accepted transitional period that will end on 31 December 2020, must apply for either Settled or pre-Settled status BEFORE 30 June 2021.
