What is changing? The EU Settlement Scheme
The EU Settlement scheme is the UK’s government’s replacement for free movement regulations which permit EU nationals and their family members to relocate, work and study in the UK. It has been piloted since late 2018, and is due to go fully live prior to Brexit day on 29 March 2019.
If you’re an EU National or the family member of an EU national in the UK, you and your family MUST 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 (if you have lived in the UK for a continuous 5-year period) status, or;
pre-settled (if you have NOT lived in the UK for a continuous 5-year period) status.
You must apply for the EU Settlement Scheme using the online application form, and the relevant process set out in that form for providing proof of identity and nationality through the use of the identity verification app.
