The European Union Settlement Scheme

The rights and status of EU citizens living in the United Kingdom.

What is the EU Settlement Scheme?

If you’re from an EU member country, 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.

Has the deadline to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme passed?

Yes. The deadline to apply was 30 June 2021, however, applications can still be made after that date if applicants:

  • meet one of the criteria for a later deadline to apply
  • have ‘reasonable grounds’ for not applying by 30 June 2021.
