LATEST POST BREXIT IMMIGRATION UPDATE
In this blog update we will be talking about the New Law which has made the Rules easier For EU Citizens At risk
New secondary legislation is to be presented to help assist EU nationals apply for settled status years after the present 30 June 2021 deadline terminates.
Helpless nationals, for example children in care and homeless individuals, previously legally living in the UK are to get advantage from the regulation. They will, on the other hand, need to demonstrate they had a “reasonable excuse” for not applying before the 30 June 2021 cut-off date.
The UK government is to take a “generous approach” in terms of what would establish rational grounds for applying after the present cut-off date and evaluate applications on a case-by-case grounds. Those with a “reasonable excuse” will also face no time restrictions for their upcoming visa applications.
It is vital to observe that the suggested rule links only to EU citizens at risk. It does not talk about the worries of EU nationals who do not get Pre-settled or Settled-status in time, or those EU nationals who may not be mindful of the needing to apply for either Pre-settled or Settled-status to safeguard their UK immigration status. These conditions elevate fears regarding the protection of rights of EU and EEA nationals in the UK post-Brexit.
For this purpose you must apply for Pre-settled or Settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme before the 30 June 2021 if you desire to live legally in the UK post-Brexit. Then again, it is robustly suggested that applications must be submitted by 31 December 2020, prior to the termination of the transition period.
