If you’re an EU citizen, you and your family will be able to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme to continue living in the UK after 30 June 2021. If your application is successful, you’ll get either settled or pre-settled status.
You may be able to stay in the UK without applying - for example, if you’re an Irish citizen or have indefinite leave to remain (ILR).
When you can apply
The EU Settlement Scheme will open fully by 30 March 2019. You may be able to apply now if you meet the criteria.
The deadline for applying will be 30 June 2021.
When you choose to apply may depend on your circumstances.
The deadline for applying will be 31 December 2020 if the UK leaves the EU without a deal.

On 21 January the Prime Minister announced that there will be no fee when the scheme opens fully on 30 March 2019. Anyone who has applied already, or who applies and pays a fee during the test phases, will have their fee refunded. Details of the refunds process will be published shortly.
If you want to apply now, the fee (which will be refunded) is:
- £65 if you’re 16 or over
- £32.50 if you’re under 16
