EU Law

EU Settlement Scheme

If you’re from the EU, Switzerland, Norway, Iceland or Liechtenstein, you and your family might be able to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme to continue living in the UK. You might also be able to apply if you’re the family member of an eligible person of Northern Ireland.

The deadline for most people to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme was 30 June 2021.

If you or your family are from the EU, Switzerland, Norway, Iceland or Liechtenstein, you can still apply if you or a family member were living in the UK by 31 December 2020. You must also either:

  • meet one of the criteria for the later deadline to apply
  • have ‘reasonable grounds’ for not applying by 30 June 2021

Seren Legal Practice can make the application on your behalf providing the reasons why the application was not summitted before the deadline. We can also help with applications for settlement if you have already been granted pre-settled status.

If your application is refused

If you application under the EU Settlement scheme is refused you have three options

  1. Apply again under the EU Settlement Scheme, there will be no additional Home Office fee for this application
  2. Apply for an administrative Review within 28 calendar days from the date of receipt of your decision (ask the Home Office to reconsider their decision)
  3. Appeal your decision to the First-Tier (Immigration and Asylum) Tribunal.

Seren Legal Practice will advice you on the best course of action which will depend on your particular circumstances and we will be with you though every step of the process, ensuring that you have the best possible outcome.
