Brexit will create a number of changes that will affect businesses, travel and our everyday lives. To find out how you can prepare for Brexit, take a look at the government’s ‘Get Ready for Brexit’ questionnaire.
If you are an EU, EEA or EFTA Citizen living in the UK, you will need to confirm your immigration status by applying for the government’s EU Settlement Scheme. There is no charge to apply and, if your application is successful, you will receive either settled or pre-settled status. Both of these will mean you can continue living in the UK after Brexit takes full effect.
If you don’t apply, there is a very real risk that you will no longer be able to work in the UK, receive NHS treatments or claim benefits after the UK has left the European Union, so applying for the scheme is really important.
The current deadline for applying to the EU Settlement Scheme is December 2020, so we strongly advise that you apply as soon as possible.
