If you hold pre-settled status, you can apply to switch to settled status as soon as you’re eligible. This is usually after you’ve lived in the UK legally for 5 years.
Settled status is confirming a European citizen’s rights to remain in the UK indefinitely.
Wednesday, 30 June 2021, was the deadline for applications to the EU Settlement Scheme for EU, EEA and Swiss citizens and their family members, who were resident in the UK by 31 December 2020.
If you need to apply, each family member must complete an application. This includes children and anyone under the age of 21. If you are expecting to have a child (or have given birth since 1 April 2021), then your baby will also need to have an application made on their behalf within 3 months of their date of birth.
If you hold pre-settled status, you can apply to switch to settled status as soon as you’re eligible. This is usually after you’ve lived in the UK, the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man for 5 years in a row (known as ‘continuous residence’).
You do not need to have held pre-settled status for 5 years before you can apply to switch to settled status. If you have spent more than 6 months outside the UK in a 12-month period, you may not be eligible for settled status.
To switch, you must apply to the EUSS again before your pre-settled status expires.
