If you are an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen, who has been resident in the UK since before the 31 December 2020 and do not have permanent right to remain it is important that you are in top of the regulations. We have put the Government guide on the website, under publications. Please scroll down and it is the last link.

Please note: This does not apply to Eire citizens* (Republic of Ireland).

You and your family members must have applied for the EU Settlement Scheme to continue legally living in the UK beyond 30 June 2021. We cannot stress how important that complying with this legislation is – please if you have not yet applied; do so. We do not know how long approval takes, but the sooner you apply to the scheme; if there are problems you have longer time in which to resolve them.

If you are struggling with this process, please do get in touch with us; we have parishioners with some experience of these processes, they have already volunteered to help anyone who needs it.
