EU Settlement Scheme

EU regulations for Freedom of Movement will no longer apply to the UK after December 2020, so the UK Government is making it compulsory for EU citizens, along with their family members, who wish to remain legally in the UK after a transition period, to apply for a new residence status.

The deadline for EU nationals and most of their family members to make an application under the scheme is 30 June 2021.

To access support to make an application to the EU Settlement Scheme, please see the list of Welsh Government funded agencies​ available to help you apply.

This section provides a summary of the EU Settlement Scheme based on guidance currently available from the Home Office and UK Government. It is intended as a general reference guide and does not constitute legal advice or a detailed guide to immigration law and policy. The​ content of this section was accurate at the time of publication. Please note that this area of law and policy is fast moving and subject to frequent change, particularly at this time as the UK negotiates its future relationship with the EU. If you have any queries about securing your immigration status within the UK, consult an Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner (OISC)-regulated immigration adviser. Be sure to check if the adviser charges a fee for their service.​
