What is the EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS)?

The EUSS was introduced in January 2020 to allow EU nationals and their family members to apply to continue living and working in the UK after 1 January 2021.

Applications for this scheme closed on 30 June 2021. EU nationals will now have to apply under the other visa routes available.

If you feel you should have applied under the EUSS but have missed the deadline please get in touch with one of our immigration team and we will be able to discuss potential options with you.
