All About The Settlement Visa For Europeans

All About The Settlement Visa For Europeans

If you want to know more about the Settlement Visa for Europeans, then you have certainly come to the right place. Here you can find out whatever you need to know about the status in general.

Is there a Settled Status Form?

The entire process for getting Settled Status is actually really simple. The main way that you need to apply would be for you to do it through the smartphone app. Applicants will also be able to apply through the website. Under very certain circumstances, the UK government are going to allow paper application forms. You will need to provide proof of your nationality, residency and identity. A facial image of yourself is also required. It’s important to know that in order to prove your identity, you will need to upload a passport or national identity card number. If your passport has a biometric chip, you can do this through the app.  If you don’t have this on your passport then you can send in your passport to the home office. Enrolling your fingerprints is also required, and you will have to get your photograph taken. This is normally done at an application centre, where you will show that you have lived in the UK for 5 years. If you want some help here, then go to Citizen’s Advice.

How can I Apply for Settled Status?

If you are an EU citizen then you have to make sure that you apply before the 30th of June, 2021. The only way that an EU migrant can apply after this is if they are joining a family member who has either Pre-Settled or Settled Status in the UK. You can apply online, so it’s not a daunting or long process.

Do I Need to Apply?

You have to register if you are an EU citizen in the UK. This means that you will be legally recognised as being a resident of the UK. If you don’t apply, then you may have your immigration status jeopardised and you might have no legal ground to live or work in the UK. When you have your status on the other hand you will have access to all of the same services.

Should I Go for Settled or Pre-Settled?

If you want to be eligible for the Settled option, then you need to have been a resident of the UK for 5 years. This needs to be done by the 31st of December, 2020.  If you fall short of the requirement then you will have pre-settled status, which means that when you have fulfilled your 5 years, you can then apply for Settled.

How much does it Cost?

If you want to apply for the Settlement Scheme, then you need to pay £65 if you are over the age of 16. If you are under this age, then you will be paying £32.50. Only in specific circumstances, will this be free of charge. This could be if you are a child in local care or even if you have a valid immigration status. If you are swapping from Pre-Settled to Settled, then this will be free of charge as well.
