The deadline for applications to the EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS) has now passed, but it’s still possible to make a late application.
EU, EEA and Swiss citizens and their family members, who were resident in the UK by December 31, 2020 needed to apply before the deadline of June 30, but you can still apply if that deadline did not apply to you, or if you have ‘reasonable grounds’ for not applying by the deadline.
You can visit gov.uk/eusettlementscheme to find out if you’re eligible, and if you are, there’s still support available to help with your application.
Even if you’ve lived in the UK for many years you should check if you need to apply. Parents will also need to check if their children need an application and should apply on their behalf without delay.
Applications before June 30
Anyone who made an application by the June 30 deadline will have their existing rights protected, pending the outcome of their application. Applicants are issued with a Certificate of Application, which can be relied on to evidence their rights.
Their Certificate of Application will be available in their ‘view and prove account’ or will be sent to them by post.
The Home Office will contact any applicant where it needs further information to progress the application.
