Settled Status

EEA citizens who were resident in the UK before 1 January 2021, and who could demonstrate this, were able to make an application under the EU Settlement Scheme.

Holding settled or pre-settled status enables EEA citizens to continue to live, work and study in the UK. The general closing date for making applications was 30 June 2021.

The Home Office will only consider late applications in certain circumstances.

Please get in touch to have your case evaluated as we may be able to assist if there are mitigating circumstances.

If you wish to join a family member in the UK you can apply for an EU Settlement Scheme Family Permit.

Settled status

EEA citizens and their qualifying family member(s) who have lived in the UK for a continuous period of five years may be able to apply for settled status, officially called Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR), under the EU Settlement Scheme.

In order to be eligible for ILR, the applicant must have been resident in the UK for a continuous five-year period. This normally means showing that you have not been outside the UK for more than 6 months in any given 12 month period.  There are exceptions to this rule so if you have exceeded these absences then please contact us and we will be able to advise.

For Settled status applications there is a fee of £250 – £500 depending on your financial circumstances and complexity of your case. We will have an honest and transparent conversation with you and charge the fees accordingly. 

If you are eligible to apply for Pre-Settled or Settled status and have not yet done so we may be able to apply on your behalf for free. Our vulnerability criteria is as follows – 

  • Children 
  • 67+ 
  • Diagnosed physical and/or mental health conditions in addition to other vulnerable factors.
  • Domestic abuse survivors
  • Human trafficking survivors.
  • Those who are deemed vulnerable due to financial circumstances and meet our financial eligibility criteria. 
  • Those who can evidence vulnerability that is not listed above e.g homelessness.

Please note this is only for those with a valid, outstanding EUSS application and not other immigration routes. 

If you are a professional from a supporting organisation we will discuss fees with you. 

All the money received from visa applications is used to support vulnerable European citizens who do not have an immigration status. This means if you choose Europia for immigration advice and support you are directly helping  citizens in need.
