EU Settlement Scheme
Updated: Mar 16
At the time of writing this article the Brexit transition date ends on 31st December, as to whether an overarching agreement is reached between the EU and the UK Government is still very much open to debate.
Currently EU nationals wishing to remain in the UK are advised to apply for the EU Settlement Scheme. If foreign born EU nationals claim to have British citizenship it would be important to check that exact status as this can often be merged with concepts of ‘permanent residence’ which can mean quite a different thing.
There are numerous different types of status on settlements of which some require application under the EU Settlement scheme and others that don’t. The deadline for application is the 30th June 2021.
