The UK Government has now announced details of its Settled Status scheme for EU citizens in the UK
Full details of the new scheme, announced on 21 June 2018, are on the GOV.UK website
Some people can apply for Settled Status now:
- From 15 November 2018, staff in the higher education sector across the UK will be able to apply for Settled Status. You need to work for an organisation on the Tier 4 Register of Licensed Sponsors
- From 29 November 2018, staff in the health and social care sectors across the UK will be able to apply for Settled Status. You can find the organisations listed on pages 4-6 of the Immigration Rules
You do not need to do anything for now. EU citizens eligible to apply in November will receive further information from their employer.
Only staff can apply at this stage and not their family members.
