If you are a citizen of the EU, EEA, or Switzerland and you intend to remain in the UK after December 31st 2020, you and your family members will need to apply through the EU Settlement Scheme for either pre-Settled or Settled Status.
You do not need to apply if you have British or Irish citizenship, or if you have Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR). However, residents with ILR may in some circumstances benefit from having Settled Status. A Permanent Residence Card will no longer be valid.
Our detailed online advice explains all the rules and how to apply.*
This information will help you decide if you should apply for (pre-) settled status and guide you through the process. There is no application fee. The closing date for applications is June 30 2021 but we strongly advise you to apply as soon as possible.
