BRIEFING NOTE FOR EU CITIZENS ABOUT THE EU SETTLEMENT SCHEME
- EU citizens living in Argyll should apply as soon as possible for settled or pre-settled status to be sure of keeping their residence in Scotland.
- The UK government guidance says that as long as EU citizens are in the UK by 31st December 2020 they have till 30th June 2021 to submit an application for the status.
- But the situation is not straightforward as far as an applicant’s continuing rights to benefits, housing and other services after 31st Dec 2020 is concerned.
For this reason Citizens Advice Scotland is strongly urging EU citizens to make the application before 31st Dec 2020 or get in touch for advice on how to do it.
