The EU Settlement Scheme
Read the guidance on EU Settlement Scheme to find out who needs to apply.
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. 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 have indefinite leave to remain.
