From today, Friday 4 June, there are only 26 days left until the deadline of 30 June 2021 for applications to be made to the EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS).
All EU, EEA and Swiss citizens and their family members who were resident in the UK by 31 December 2020 are reminded to apply without delay at www.gov.uk/eusettlementscheme so that they can continue to work, study, and access free healthcare and benefits in the UK after 30 June 2021.
An application needs to be made for every eligible child within a family. Parents should check if they need to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme for their children, even if they have already applied and been granted a status themselves.
If an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen and their family members have lived in the UK for many years or have a permanent residence document or EEA Biometric Residence Card (BRC), they still need to apply to the EUSS (or apply for British citizenship) by 30 June 2021 to secure their existing rights in the UK.
Irish citizens and those with indefinite leave do not need to apply but may do so if they wish.
