What Happens Post Brexit?



If you’re from the EU, Switzerland, Norway, Iceland or Liechtenstein, you and your family might be able to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme to continue living in the UK. You might also be able to apply if you’re the family member of an eligible person of Northern Ireland.


The deadline for most people to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme was 30 June 2021.


If you or your family are from the EU, Switzerland, Norway, Iceland or Liechtenstein, you can still apply if you or a family member were living in the UK by 31 December 2020. You must also either:

  • meet one of the criteria for a later deadline to apply.

  • have ‘reasonable grounds’ for not applying by 30 June 2021.

You can also apply if you already have pre-settled status, and you’re applying for settled status.

You may be able to stay in the UK without applying - for example, if you’re an Irish citizen, or you already have indefinite leave to enter or remain.


If your application is successful, you’ll get either settled or pre-settled status.


Please note that the previous EEA applications are no longer valid and if you wish to apply for pre-settlement, you must have the following documents.


1) A valid ID document such as a passport, BRP Card BRC or a national ID card.


4) If you applied to the EU Settlement Scheme and were given pre-settled status, you need to apply for settled status before your pre-settled status expires.



3) You must have been resident in the United Kingdom for at least


4) If you applied to the EU Settlement Scheme and were given pre-settled status, you need to apply for settled status before your pre-settled status expires.


Settled status will let you stay in the UK for as long as you like. You can usually apply for citizenship once you’ve had settled status for 12 months.
