EEA Applications

1 EEA Nationals

If you are an EEA national and has not applied for a Residence Permit previously then you may wish to consider applying for one prior to Brexit to preserve your current rights as an EEA national exercising Treaty Rights. This is important if you wish to continue to reside and work in the UK after Brexit.

2. Non EEA Nationals

If you are a non EEA national and married to an EEA national you can apply for a Residence Card to live and work in the UK. If you are divorced from your non-EEA spouse then you may have a continuous right to live and work in the UK under the EEA Regulations of Retained Rights.

3. Dependent Relatives of EEA Nationals

If you are a non EEA national and are a dependent relative of an EEA national, you may apply for a Residence Card to live and work in the UK. You should seek advice and assistance.

4. Permanent Residence

If you are eligible to confirm your rights for Permanent Residence in the UK, either as an EEA national or non EEA national, then it is advisable that you do it before the Brexit date.

Eu Settlement Scheme

If you're an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen, you and your family can apply to the EUSettlement Scheme to continue living in the UK after 30 June 2021. If your application is successful, you'll get either settled or pre-settled status.

The EEA includes the EU countries and also Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway.

You may be able to stay in the UK without applying - for example, if you're an Irish citizen or have indefinite leave to remain.

When you can apply

The EU Settlement Scheme is open. You can apply now if you meet the criteria.

The deadline for applying is 30 June 2021.

If the UK leaves the EU without a deal

You will need to be living in the UK before it leaves the EU to apply. The deadline for applying will be 31 December 2020.
