  • IMPORTANT PLEASE READ Dates and deadlines to apply under the EU Settlement Scheme

    Please note the following dates and deadlines

    EEA nationals need to be in the UK before the end of 202 to be eligible to apply for pre-settled status in their own right. See: Application summary

    Applications for extended family members inside the UK (EEA-EFM) and outside the UK (EEA family permit) are longer accepted,unless they appied for a document under EEA rules before the end of last year. Extended family members are dependent relatives such as siblings, aunts/uncles, nieces/nephews, etc. See: Extended family members and dependent relatives

    The deadline for British nationals to return to the UK with their family after living in another EU country under Surinder Singh is the end of this year if the relationship (i.e. marriage or civil partnership) was established during the transition period, that is, after the end of January 2020. This DOES NOT APPLY if the relationship was in place before the UK left the EU on January 31st 2020. See: Surinder Singh

    Close family members, which include spouses and civil partners, chlidren/grandchildren, parents/grandparents arriving after the end of December will no longer be able to switch over to pre-settled status from visit visa or entering as visitors without a visa.

    From January 1st, joining family members will need to do the following:
    Non EEA nationals will need to apply for a family permit before travelling to the UK, see: EUSS Family permit

    EEA nationals will need to apply for pre-settled status from abroad, before travelling to the UK, as noted here: Applications from family members

    Deadline for EEA nationals and family members already in the UK to apply under the EUSS for settled or pre-settled status is the end of June. This does not apply to close family members who can join their family member after this date.

    Close family members, which are spouses/civil partners, children/grandchildren, parents/grandparents (including in-laws) can apply for an EEA family permit (if non EEA nationals), or for pre-settled status (if they are EEA nationals) from outside the UK at any time, provided their family member (EEA national sponsor) has settled or pre-sttled status in the UK. See: Evidence

    The relationship (i.e. marriage or civil partnership) has to be in place before the end of December 2020, in order to be eligible to apply under the EUSS as a close family member. See: Spouses and civil partners

    Although there is no deadline for parents (including in-laws), to apply for a family permit to join their child in the UK, dependency will no longer be assumed from the 1st of July and will need to be demonstrated when applying for the family permit and then for pre-settled status. See: Parents, grandparents and great grandparents

    The deadline for British citizens living in another EU country to return with their family to the UK under Surinder Singh is March 29th 2022, provided the relationship (i.e. marriage or civil partnership) was in place before the date when the UK officially left the EU, that is, January 31st 2020. See: Surinder Singh

    Unmarried partners living outside the UK who meet the durable partner criteria can apply for a family permit until the end of June. See: Unmarried partners

    Unmarried partners already in the UK who meet the durable partner criteria could only apply for an EEA residence card (EEA-EFM) until the end of December. See: Unmarried partners. Nowadays, the only route is to apply for a family permit from outside the UK .

    EEA nationals who are not eligible to apply under the EUSS will need to find a route under the new immigration system coming into force from January 1st.
