Time is running out to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme
If you’re an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen it’s vital that you and your family apply to the EU Settlement Scheme to continue living in the UK after 30 June 2021.
Those citizens that do not apply to the Scheme by 30 June 2021 will lose their rights to live and work in the UK and access the NHS. Please apply now before it’s too late.
You need to apply if:
You’re an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen.
You’re not an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen, but your family member is (or is an eligible person of Northern Ireland).
You do not need to apply if you have indefinite leave to remain or enter, or if you’re an Irish citizen.
Apply to the Scheme here.
