FEE FOR POST-BREXIT EU SETTLED STATUS SCHEME CANCELLED BY THE GOVERNMENT
Theresa May proclaimed that fee for EU Settled Status applications will be cancelled, because of “powerful representations” on the plan. With the primary planned fee of £65 for adults now abandoned, EU citizens will still be required to apply to remain legitimately in the United Kingdom once the United Kingdom has left the European Union. European Union citizens and their family members who require help applying for Settled and Pre-Settled Status must not delay to get in touch with an Immigration Team to fix a meeting with their expert European Union Immigration Representative.
No charge for post-Brexit EU Settled Status Scheme
Theresa May has declared that the £65 fee for adults and £32.50 fee for kids who will apply for post-Brexit EU Settled Status will be relinquished. Additionally, someone has previously applied under the Settled Status trial will have their fees refunded. The Prime Minister specified in at the House of Commons that:
“I can confirm today that when we roll out the scheme in full on 30 March, the government will waive the application fee so that there is no financial barrier for any EU nationals who wish to stay. Anyone who has applied during the pilot phase will have their fee reimbursed.”
This is a delightful news as many activists had debated that EU Nationals should not have to pay for to apply for their entitlement to remain in the United Kingdom when they had get into the United Kingdom in the anticipation that they could practice their Treaty Rights and reside free of Immigration control.
Post-Brexit EU Settled Status Scheme: What is it?
EU nationals and their family members will be able to apply to the EU Settled Status Scheme in order to resume residing in the United Kingdom after 30 June 2021. If the application is victorious, they will be permitted either settled status or pre-settled status. Settled Status will be allowed if the qualified Applicant has started living in the United Kingdom by 31 December 2020 and you have 5 years unbroken residence in the United Kingdom. Applicants who do not possess 5 years non-stop residence in the United Kingdom may apply for Pre-Settled Status. Successful Applicants will be able to reside in the United Kingdom for a further 5 years from the date they are awarded Pre-Settled Status, but they should apply over again and attain Settled Status if they desire to reside in the UK for extended time.
Holding Settled Status will permit qualified individuals to seek job in the United Kingdom, use the NHS, register in or resume education, have access public funds such as subsidies and allowances and move without restrictions in and out of the United Kingdom. The EU Settled Status Scheme will be completely accessible by 30 March 2019 and the time limit for Applicants to apply will be 30 June 2021 or 31 December 2020 if the UK leaves the EU with no deal.
