The UK’s departure from the EU on January 31st 2020 has intensified the concern of rights groups for the estimated 900,000 EU nationals yet to secure their status through the Home Office’s settled status scheme.
A reminder about applying for EU Settled Status, with links to useful resources.
Since the Brexit referendum we have, not surprisingly, been contacted by lots of people asking about the situation for European nationals and their families.
It’s been a difficult question to answer because there’s still so much uncertainty about what the legal situation will be after Brexit – it will depend on negotiations and perhaps new agreements with EEA states.
There have, however, been some really useful resources put out to explain the current situation, what may change, and what people can do to be in the strongest position possible when the UK leaves the European Union.
