Applications to the EU Settlement Scheme must be made before 30 June
Citizens Advice Rochdale is urging EU, EEA or Swiss citizens to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme before the 30 June deadline, to continue living and working in the UK.
Applications to the EU Settlement Scheme should be made online through the GOV.UK website. Applying to the scheme is free.
Applicants must have been resident in the UK by 31 December 2020.
Irish citizens do not need to apply to the settlement scheme. If they choose to, they can apply from within the UK regardless of how they entered.
Steve Hughes, Chief Operating Officer of Citizens Advice Stockport, Oldham, Rochdale, Trafford Group, said: “The deadline to apply for settled and pre-settled status is fast approaching.
“We are finding that in some cases, people simply aren’t aware that they need to apply, and that by missing the upcoming deadline they could lose the right to live and work in the UK.
“We encourage those who have not yet applied for settled or pre-settled status to do so as soon as possible, to allow time to complete the application and gather any evidence you may need.”
For further information and guidance, contact Citizens Advice Rochdale on 0808 278 7803 (free phone) or via the website.
