Cardiff Council

EU Settlement Scheme

Council Leader, Councillor Huw Thomas, has been clear that EU citizens living in Cardiff belong and are welcome in our city.

“Cardiff is a city with a long and proud history of international migration.  Our internationalism and ability to welcome those from countries around the world delivered great prosperity to Cardiff, and we hope this long continues in the coming years, during what could be a time of considerable change for the UK.  
European nationals living in Cardiff contribute much to the rich fabric of our city, and we will continue to welcome those who come to live, work and study here in the Welsh Capital.

key priority for the city in the coming months will be ensuring that EU nationals, who have made Cardiff their home, secure the immigration status they need to remain in the city in the years to come.

​​This is of course working on the basis that the UK does indeed exit the EU as the UK Government is planning".

o make sure EU citizens and their families have all the information they need about living in Cardiff after Brexit we have created this information hub.
