Home Office launch EU Settlement Scheme

The Home Office this week has launched a new nationwide marketing campaign to encourage EU citizens to apply for the EU Settlement Scheme ahead of its full launch on Saturday 30 March

The campaign will be visible at around 6,000 sites across the UK including in every major city.

The Scheme, which has been designed in close consultation with EU citizens, employers and community groups, is free and simple to use via a brand new online application process. It enables EU citizens to protect the rights they currently have in the UK.

Applicants will only need to prove their identity, demonstrate their UK residence, and declare any criminal convictions.

Deal or no deal, EU citizens will have until at least 31 December 2020 to apply. More information is available here: gov.uk/eusettlementscheme
