How to Apply for EU Settlement Scheme (settled and pre-settled status)

If you’re an EUEEA or Swiss citizen, you and your family can apply to the EU Settlement Scheme to continue living in the UK after 30 June 2021. You can also apply if you’re the family member of an eligible person of Northern Ireland.

If your application is successful, you’ll get either settled or pre-settled status.

The EEA includes the EU countries and also Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway.

You may be able to stay in the UK without applying – for example, if you’re an Irish citizen or already have indefinite leave to remain.

Who should apply

Except in a few cases, you need to apply if:

The EEA includes the EU countries and also Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway.

This means you need to apply even if you:

If you have children, you need to apply for them separately.

If you’re an EUEEA or Swiss citizen and you have a family member who is an eligible person of Northern Ireland, you may be able to choose which way you apply.

Who else can apply

You can apply to join your EUEEA or Swiss family member if they started living in the UK by 31 December 2020.

You also may be able to apply if you’re not an EUEEA or Swiss citizen but:

  • you used to have an EUEEA or Swiss family member living in the UK (but you’ve separated, they’ve died or the family relationship has broken down)
  • you’re the family member of a British citizen and you lived outside the UK in an EEA country together
  • you’re the family member of a British citizen who also has EUEEA or Swiss citizenship and who lived in the UK as an EUEEA or Swiss citizen before getting British citizenship
  • you have a family member who is an eligible person of Northern Ireland
  • you’re the primary carer of a British, EUEEA or Swiss citizen
  • you’re the child of an EUEEA or Swiss citizen who used to live and work in the UK, or the child’s primary carer

Apply to the EU Settlement Scheme

You can apply using any device, for example, a laptop, Android device or iPhone.

Check what you’ll need before you apply.

Apply

You can apply now if you’re eligible. The deadline for applying is usually 30 June 2021.

You can also choose to apply later depending on your circumstances.

If you get pre-settled status, you’ll need to apply again when you’re changing your pre-settled status for settled status.

If you’re applying for yourself and your children, make your own application first.
