How to stay in the UK after Brexit: About the EU Settlement Scheme

PLEASE NOTE: Things may be different or restricted due to the current situation. You can stay up to date by reading our dedicated webpage on immigration and Covid-19/coronavirus :

The UK left the EU (Brexit day) on 31 January 2020 

There is a transition period from 31 January 2020 to 31 December 2020, during which EU law will continue to apply in the UK.

Citizens of European Union (EU) and European Economic Area (EEA) member states and Switzerland who are already resident in the UK (for example for studies) before the UK leaves the European Union may need to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme in order to continue living in the UK beyond 31 December 2020.
