There is just over a week to go until the deadline of 30 June 2021 for applications to be made to the EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS). Applications can be made at www.gov.uk/eusettlementscheme.
The UK Government values the contributions EU, EEA and Swiss citizens make to the social, economic and cultural fabric of the UK and prioritises protecting the rights of those living in the UK. There have been over 5 million grants of pre-settled or settled status, allowing millions of citizens to continue to work, study, and access free healthcare and benefits in the UK after 30 June 2021.
From 1 July 2021, EU, EEA and Swiss citizens and their family members granted status under the EU Settlement Scheme will need to evidence their rights in the UK with their digital immigration status, rather than their passport or ID card using the View and Prove service.
A new guide explains how EU, EEA and Swiss citizens can view and prove their immigration status (eVisa). The guide explains how people can view and prove their immigration status, update their details, what they should expect when crossing the UK border and how to get help accessing their immigration status.
The Home Office continues to ensure that the EUSS is accessible and that the process is capable of handling vulnerable applicants with flexibility and sensitivity. Support is available through the Home Office’s Settlement Resolution Centre seven days a week by telephone and online, for anyone who needs help with their application. Those who don’t feel confident applying online can contact the Assisted Digital service on 03333 445 675 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for support.
