Settled and pre-settled status
If you're an EU (European Union), EEA (European Economic Area) or Swiss citizen, you and your family can apply to the EU Settlement Scheme to continue living in the UK after 30 June 2021. If your application is successful, you'll get either settled or pre-settled status. You may be able to stay in the UK without applying.
Employers will also need to verify all their employees have the legal right to live and work in Britain or will face penalties.
Applications for settled status must be made online and there is free internet access to help you get online at each of our libraries across the borough.
