Settled and Pre-Settled status applications

Residence

Family members

People with pre-settled status need to make sure they spend at least 6 months out of every 12, in the UK, in order to qualify for settled status. 

If you have pre-settled status, you will need to make a new application for settled status, it will not be granted automatically.

If your children are not British, they will also need settled or pre-settled status after the end of June, even if born in the UK.

The deadline for most people to apply under the EUSS is the end of June 2021.

You need to apply for settled status if you applied for citizenship with PR and will not have your ceremony before the end of June.
