Brexit and your rights as an EU national

EU Settled Status is a immigration status for European Union Citizens and their family members. Everyone who wish to continue living and working in the UK after December 2020 are required to apply.

The most important thing  EU citizens can do to protect their rights to live and work in the UK is to apply for Settled Status with the UK authorities to ensure that they are legally residing here in the UK.
