NO ENTRY FOR EU NATIONALS FROM OCTOBER 2021
In this video, we will be talking about Entry ban of EU nationals into the UK With Identity Cards From October 2021
Due to Brexit and the UK’s exit from the European Union, identity cards will not be enough to come to the UK.
According to the new rules published by the UK government on 8 October, EU/EEA and Swiss citizens will not be allowed to come to the UK using their national identity cards from October 2021. Instead passports will be needed for entry from this date onwards.
These new regulations will not apply to EU nationals already living in the UK if they have successfully made application for the EU Settlement Scheme. They will be applicable to visiting tourists and other visitors to the UK. For more information please click the link mentioned below in the comments section and description box.
Why Is EU Settlement Scheme Important and What is it?
The EU Settlement Scheme was presented because of the preparations for Brexit, at which point the UK will depart from the European Union. The Scheme administers the applications of EU/EEA (EU, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway) and Swiss citizens presently living in the UK to legally stay in the UK after Brexit.
The Brexit transition phase will terminate on 31 December 2020, concluding freedom of movement. All EU/EEA citizens who desire to live in the UK should be physically present in the UK before 31 December 2020, and apply for status under the EU Settlement Scheme by latest 30 June 2021.
EU Settlement Scheme who does it affect?
Any individual who is a national of an EU/EEA country and Switzerland, together with their immediate family members, who desire to continue residing in the UK should apply to the Scheme (even though if they have a British partner) by 30 June 2021. This comprises all those who presently possess status under the EEA Regulations, for instance an EEA residence, or permanent residency card.
Later this date, if you do not possess a Pre-settled Status, a Settled Status, you will be required to leave the UK. For more information please check the link mentioned below.
EU nationals residing in the UK who have family members uniting with them in the UK after the transition phase (from 1 January 2021 onwards) will still be able to apply under the EU Settlement Scheme after the 31 December 2020, only if the relationship endured before the termination of the transition period, and is existing at the time that the application is submitted. Those family members who do so, may initially be obligated to apply for an EU/EEA family permit so as to come to the UK at this time, and then submit their application from within the UK, before 30 June 2021.
What is the deadline to apply for the EUSS?
If you are an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen you should be physically residing in the UK as of 31 December 2020.
If you desire to stay in the UK post-Brexit, you should make an application for Pre-Settled Status or Settled Status under the EU Settlement Scheme not later than 30 June 2021. Then again, it is suggested that application should made by latest 31 December 2020.
If you are unable to fulfil this requirement and desire to come back to the UK after the transition period, you will be required to apply in accordance with the UK immigration system in effect at that time from your country of nationality or residence.
