Deadline for applying to the EU settlement scheme

Published: Friday 14 May 2021
Deadline for applying to the EU settlement scheme

The EU Settlement Scheme allows you and your family members to get the immigration status you need to continue to live, work and study in the UK beyond 30 June 2021. This status means you can continue to be eligible for:

  • public services, such as healthcare and schools
  • public funds and pensions
  • British citizenship, if you meet the requirements and want to apply

Who should apply?

Except in a few cases, EEA and Swiss citizens, resident in the UK by 31 December 2020, and their non-EU family members, need to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme.

EEA countries and Switzerland:

Republic of Cyprus
Czech Republic

Irish citizens do not need to apply, but they can if they want to. Their non-Irish, non-British family members will need to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme if they want to stay in the UK. A family member of a relevant person of Northern Ireland is also able to make an application to the scheme.

Even if you have lived in the UK for many years or you have a UK permanent residence document you still need to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme. You do not need to apply if you have indefinite leave to remain or enter, but you can if you want to.

If you require assistance to apply please contact Donald Mutale at Newport Mind on tel 07976 462481 or email
