Deadline for applying to the EU Settlement Scheme approaching
Are you, or do you know someone who is an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen currently residing in the UK?
If so, they are being encouraged to apply now to the EU Settlement Scheme, ahead of the application deadline of 30 June 2021, to ensure their rights in UK law.
The latest set of official statistics, published last week, highlight the fact that, in the period ending on 31 December 2020, nearly 4.9 million applications had been made to the EU Settlement Scheme.
The scheme was originally launched on 30 March 2019, and at the busiest point, Home Office staff were regularly processing up to 20,000 applications on a daily basis. The EU Exit: ID Document Check app enables individuals to apply from wherever they may be in 15 minutes.
