EU Settlement Scheme
EU citizens who are currently living in the UK will soon be able to apply for a new status that means they can keep living, working and studying in the UK after Brexit:
- settled status – if you have been living continuously in the UK for at least 5 years
- pre-settled status – if you have lived continuously in the UK for under 5 years
This is called the EU Settlement Scheme.
The UK Government have said that the Settlement Scheme will go ahead even in the event of no deal.
