As the EU Settlement deadline of 30 June draws closer, Advice NI was pleased to host Kevin Foster, Minister for Future Borders and Immigration, on Tuesday 15 June to discuss the Scheme and the future of Immigration within the UK.
As the deadline is approaching fast, we are receiving an unprecedented number of calls and messages on our helpline and emails.
The following has issued from the Home Office with regard to end of the immigration grace period on 30 June 2021.
Do you know an elderly or vulnerable EU, EEA or Swiss citizen living in the UK before 31 Dec 2020? They need to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme by 30 Jun 2021 to protect their rights and benefits.
Speaking about Advice NI’s response to Government's new employment strategy for disabled people, Chief Executive Bob Stronge said:
Advice NI is providing help and support to local residents and vulnerable people to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme.

The current circumstances are extremely challenging for all of us, with access to services and support restricted by the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
It has been estimated that approximately 200,000 local workers in NI are on the Government's job retention (furlough) scheme, which covers 80% of wages up to £2,500 a month.
This important milestone was reached with eight months still to go before the 30 June 2021 deadline.
