Pre-settled Status under EU Settlement Scheme for the EU, EEA & Swiss Nationals.
How can I apply for Pre-settled Status under EU Settlement Scheme?
You cannot specifically request for the Pre-settled Status when you submit your application under the EU Settlement Scheme in the UK, if you have started living in the UK before 31 December 2020. The Home Office will automatically grant pre-settled status if you do not meet the requirements for Settled Status. You can stay in the UK for a further 5 years from the date you get pre-settled status.
If you are a EU, EEA or Swiss citizen living in the UK, your rights and status in the UK will remain the same until 30 June 2021.The EEA includes the EU countries, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. Under the Free Movement Rights, Swiss nationals also get the same rights as EU and EEA nationals.
If you apply to the EU Settlement Scheme successfully before 30 June 2021 and are granted pre-settled status, you will be able to continue living and working in the UK after 30 June 2021.
Once you are granted pre-settled status in the UK, you can stay in the UK as long as you like and you will also be able to apply for Settled Status when you complete five year continuous stay in the UK. You must apply for Settled Status before your pre-settled status expires.
What can I do in the UK if my application under EU Settlement Scheme is successful?
As a person with pre-settled status or settled status in the UK, you will be able to:
Work in the UK or be self-employed,
Use the NHS (National Health Service) for free, if you are able to use NHS at present,
