APPLYING FOR EUSS DURING UK VISIT VISA

The UK Home Office on 10 September 2021 issued a Statement of Changes to the Immigration Rules (HC 617). In that, the main modifications with regard to the EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS) apply to those who desire to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme at the same time as living in the UK as a visitor.

Precisely, from 6 October 2021, joining family members are able to apply for status under the EUSS at the same time as living in the UK as a visitor.

This is a major modification. The former situation was that it was usually not possible for those living in the UK as a visitor to apply for status under the EUSS. As an alternative, they would have had to depart from the UK and apply for status under the EUSS from outside the UK.

Please keep in mind that, the following family members (EEA citizens or non-EEA citizens) of sponsors (for example EEA citizens who possess status under the EUSS) may be entitled to apply for status under the EUSS as the joining family members of an EEA national, subject to meeting the related obligations:

Civil partner;
Durable partner;
Spouse;
Child under the age of 21 of the relevant sponsor or of the spouse or civil partner;
Dependent child over 21 of the relevant sponsor or of the spouse or civil partner; or
Dependent parent of the relevant sponsor or of the spouse or civil partner.
