settled and pre settled status

Settled and pre-settled status for EU citizens

Settled and pre-settled status for EU citizens is the latest development, which has been issued by the Home Office on 31 August 2018.

Apply for UK Visa in Birmingham an expert Immigration Solicitors Firm in Birmingham are pleased to give you some guidance on what this means and how we can help you if you are someone that needs this.

What does this mean for me?

If you are an EEA National who is in the UK you and your family will be able to either get a settlement status or a pre-settled status.

In brief it means you can stay in the UK after December 2020.

Certain people will not need to apply for this if they are already in the UK.

When does the scheme start?

The scheme as announced by the Home Office will fully open in March 2019.

The Home Office has set a deadline to make this application, which is 30 June 2021. However in certain circumstances you will also get to apply after this date such as if you are joining a family member in the UK with settled or pre-settled status.

Settled and pre-settled status

Either one of these status’ means that you will get to stay in the UK enabling you as an EEA National or as their family member to live and work in the UK.

If you get settled status it simply means that you can stay in the UK for as long as you like and apply for British citizenship when you meet the requirements.

If you get pre-settled status you can stay for a further 5 years from the date that you get the status.

Once you have reached 5 years you can apply for settled status and will also need to meet some requirements, which the Home Office will set out.

What rights do I have with settled or pre-settled status?

You can (depending on your circumstances) work in the NHS, use the NHS, enrol into education or continue studying, access public funds such as benefits and pensions, bring family members in to the UK 31 December 2020 and travel in and out of the UK.

What next?

You should get ready to apply for this visa if you fall into one of the following categories:

  • be an EEA citizen, or a family member of an EEA citizen

  • have been living in the UK continuously for 5 years (‘continuous residence’)

  • have started living in the UK by 31 December 2020

If you’ve lived in the UK for less than 5 years, you’ll generally be eligible for pre-settled status instead.

You’ll need to apply even if you are an EEA citizen married to a British citizen.

If you already have Permanent Residence you need to make sure that you apply for settled status before the deadline above as it will not be valid after 31 December 2020.
