EU Settlement Scheme

If you are a European Union (EU) citizen, you and your family will be able to apply to get either settled or pre-settled status.

This will mean you can continue living in the UK after 31 December 2020, you will have until 30 June 2021 to apply for either settled or pre-settled status.

Our EU settlement service (EUSS) is available on Tuesdays and Thursdays only from 9.30am to 11.30am. You do not need to book an appointment for this service. 


Who can apply?

Information on who is eligable to apply during the pilot phase can be found on the GOV.UK website. 


Please note that making an application is entirely voluntary. There will be no change to current rights under EU law until the end of the planned implementation period on 31 December 2020

If your mobile phone or other device does not have near field communication (NFC) and you are eligible to apply for settled status during the pilot phase, you can bring your ID document to us, where it can be scanned and verified for you.
