Brexit Advice for Residents

The government has launched its new 'Get Ready for Brexit' campaign. Find out what you need to do to get ready for 31 October at www.gov.uk/brexit 

The Get ready for Brexit website is a great resource for UK nationals living in the EU and EU citizens living in the UK. 

If you’re an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen, 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 (depending on how long you have been living in the UK). You may be able to stay in the UK without applying, for example if you're an Irish citizen or have indefinite leave to remain.

The EU Settlement Scheme is now open and you can apply to the EU Settlement Scheme on GOV.UK. The deadline for applications is 30 June 2021, or 31 December 2020 should the UK leave the EU without a deal. If the UK leaves the EU without a deal you will need to be living in the UK before it leaves the EU to apply.

You can find out more and sign up for updates on the scheme. More information is also available on the government's EU citizens' rights website.
