You can confirm your immigration status by applying for the European Union Settlement Scheme (EUSS). Successful applicants will gain either settled or pre-settled status. The current deadline to apply to the scheme is 30 June 2021, but Europia would recommend that EU Citizens contact an appropriate agency as soon as possible. The sooner the application is made, the sooner EU Citizens can confirm their right to stay.
The scheme is free to apply for, but you will need: identification documents such as a passport, birth certificate and a national insurance number. You could also need documents such as P45s or Council Tax bills to prove how long you have lived in the UK.
To get in touch with Europia about EUSS Application Assistance, please call us on 0333 3058 570 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org We are up and running during Coronavirus (COVID19).

Some Quick EUSS Tips:
All EU/EEA nationals need to apply for either Settled Status or Pre Settled status – depending on how long you have been in the UK:
– Pre Settled status is for those that have been living in the UK for under five years.
– Settled Status is for EU citizens and family members that have stayed in the UK for five years or longer at the time they apply.
– If your child was born in the UK but does not hold citizenship, they also need to be registered for the EUSS.
If you are only eligible to apply for Pre Settled status, you will have to reapply for settled status after five years of residency in the UK, whilst Settled Status does not expire.
On 25 February 2021, The Home Office published the latest quarterly information on applications received and cases concluded to the EUSS for local authorities and regions up to 31 December 2020. This report published by Europia highlights the key trends for Greater Manchester and its 10 boroughs: Bolton, Bury, Manchester, Oldham, Rochdale, Salford, Stockport, Tameside, Trafford and Wigan.
