EU citizens in the UK and what they need to know
You may be aware that as a result of Brexit EU citizens and their family members must apply for new immigration status under the UK Government’s EU Settlement Scheme if they intend to continue to live in the UK. Failing to do so will result in these citizens not having an immigration status in the UK beyond 30 June 2021.
Vulnerable groups of citizens – such as the elderly, those with lower digital literacy and limited access to the online application process, children in care, those with lower levels of English, those who live in poverty and many more – may not be aware that they need to take action and could find it more challenging to submit an application for the new status. Furthermore, in the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic helping citizens through face-to-face contacts has become more difficult than ever.
In order to get information to those who need this the most the EU Delegation has published a series of information leaflets which are available here:
- What you need to know as an EU citizen living in the UK
- What you need to know as a senior EU citizen living in the UK
- What you need to know as a non-EU citizen living in the UK if you have, or had, a family connection to an EU citizen
