Further to the update included in last week’s edition of the newsletter, the Home Office has advised it is planning to run some additional sessions on Microsoft Teams over the next few days on EUSS and the end of the Grace Period on June 30, 2021:
EU Settlement Scheme and the end of the Grace Period on June 30, 2021
The EU Settlement Scheme has been fully open since March 30, 2019. EU, other EEA and Swiss citizens, and their family members have until June 30, 2021 to apply.
The EU Settlement Scheme is a free scheme which enables EEA and Swiss citizens resident in the UK by the end of the transition period, and their family members, to obtain the status they will require in order to live and work in the UK.
Applicants only need to complete three key steps – prove their identity, show that that they live in the UK, and declare any criminal convictions.
It is designed to be as simple and straightforward as possible.
