EU Settlement Scheme

EU Settlement Scheme

29th January 2019

EU citizens and their families who are living in Scotland 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.

The EU Settlement Scheme will open fully by 30 March 2019 but you may be able to apply now if you meet certain criteria. There is more information on the Government website: https://www.gov.uk/settled-status-eu-citizens-families

The deadline for applying will be 30 June 2021 or it may be 31 December 2020 if the UK leaves the EU without a deal.  

Perth CAB will be able to advise EU citizens on their rights and we will assist with the application if required, although many people will find the process straightforward.  The Scottish Government has provided additional funding through Citizens Advice Scotland which will enable CABx to train their staff and to develop resources which will help applicants.  This new service will be available from March 2019.

Please ring 01738 450581 if you would like to make an appointment to discuss the EU Settlement Scheme.

There will be a public Information Event on Thursday 14th February at the North Inch Community Campus.  The event is from 5.30 to 7.30 with registration from 5pm
