EU Settlement Scheme Deadline

As the deadline is approaching fast, we are receiving an unprecedented number of calls and messages on our helpline and emails. 

Our EUSS team including our partner and member Migrant Centre NI are working hard to help as many people as we can to apply before the 30th June deadline.
Currently we are having to prioritise queries from those who have not applied for EUSS yet and those who are applying for family members.
If you miss the deadline you can still apply for EUSS if you have reasonable grounds for missing the deadline.
The list of ‘reasonable grounds’ is not exhaustive and includes:
  • Children
  • Care leavers
  • Where adults lack the mental / physical capacity to apply
  • Where there are serious medical conditions
  • Victims of trafficking
  • Abusive / controlling relationships.
  • Other compelling or practical reasons
An application should still be accepted past the 30th June deadline but seeking specialist immigration advice and representation is strongly advised if the deadline is missed where, a person:
  • may have been unaware of the requirement to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme by the 30 June deadline
  • may have failed to make an application by the deadline if they had no access to internet
  • had limited computer literacy or limited English language skills
  • had been living overseas
We will do our best to ensure anyone that contacts us doesn’t miss the deadline, thank you for your understanding!
