EU Settlement Scheme - New Report.
The EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS) allows EU nationals who arrived by 31 December 2020 (and some others) to protect their rights to live and work in the UK. It’s about to become big news, because the deadline for application is 30 June 2021.
As things stand, those who have not applied for settled status by that date will no longer have a legal immigration status in the UK. overall, it has been hugely successful: over 5 million people have applied – far more than expected – and the vast majority of applications have been approved quickly. But no government scheme has ever had 100% compliance. There will be a rush to apply in the final few days of the scheme, but some will not make it.
The aim of this report is to explain the scheme, its background, how it works, who has applied, who may not have, and the lessons we have learned so far. It was written by Catherine Barnard, Fiona Costello, charlotte O’Brien, Jonathan Portes and Jill Rutter, to whom we give our heartfelt thanks.
