Brexit: Updated information from the Government for EU citizens and their family members
The Department for Exiting the EU has published a technical document specifying new details on how “settled status” scheme will operate for EU citizens and their family members. The government promised that the application process will be streamlined, low-cost and user friendly, expecting the majority of cases to be granted and giving a statutory right to appeal if their application is denied. EU citizens will be given a two-year “grace period” to obtain the settled status after Brexit. The document also confirms that EU citizens will not be required to have comprehensive sickness insurance or to provide fingerprints as part of the application process.
