Prepare for the UK's departure from the European Union
The Government has published advice for individuals and businesses ahead of the UK's departure from the European Union (EU) on 31 October 2019.
EU Settlement Scheme
If you're an EU, EEA 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 receives approval, you'll be granted either 'settled' or 'pre-settled' status depending on how long you've been living in the UK when you apply.
You must apply by 30 June 2021.
If the UK leaves the EU without a deal, you'll need to be living in the UK before it leaves the EU to apply. In the event of the UK leaving the EU without a deal, you must apply by 31 December 2020.
The Government's website has information about the EU Settlement Scheme in 26 European languages.
