EUSS Settlement Scheme
If you’re an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen living in the Mid and East Antrim area, you and your family can apply to the EU Settlement Scheme to continue living in the UK after 30 June 2021. If your application is successful, you’ll get either settled or pre-settled status.
As a consortium partner in the Stronger Together EU Settlement Scheme Project we can provide
- Information and Awareness sessions about the settlement scheme
- Individual support and help with applying for Settled Status
- Specialised immigration advice from STEP, Law CentreNI and Childrens Law Centre
This service is free, multilingual, local and OISC regulated. Please contact us or check our EUSS FAQ section for further information.
Can I apply to the scheme now?
Yes. Any EU, EEA or Swiss citizen can apply before 30 June 2021.
What if there is a No-deal Brexit?
You will need to be living in the UK before it leaves the EU to apply. The No-deal deadline is currently 31 December 2020.
Is it free to apply?
Yes. It is an entirely free service.
What if I was born in the UK?
If you were born in the UK but are not a British citizen, you will still need to apply for settled status.
What if I have a permanent residency document?
If you have a permanent residence document, you will still need to apply for Settled Status.
What if I have indefinite leave to enter or remain in the UK?
You can continue to live in the UK without applying to the EU Settlement Scheme if you have indefinite leave to enter or remain in the UK. However, if you choose to apply (and meet all the other conditions), you’ll get ‘indefinite leave to remain under the EU Settlement Scheme’ - also known as settled status.
