The EU Settlement Scheme


What is it?

The EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS) is the new settlement route that will allow EU, EEA Nationals and their family members to settle in the UK in the lead up to and after the UK leaves the EU. The purpose of this scheme is to ensure that EU Nationals and their family members will continually be able to work study and settle in the UK permanently.


The EUSS is open to any and all EEA Nationals and their family members; they only need to ensure they meet the identity, residence and suitability criteria.
