Deadline to apply for Settled or Pre-Settled Status
Brexit

LESS DETAILSMORE DETAILS

Swiss citizens (and their family members) wishing to remain in the UK beyond December 2020 have to apply for a new residence status under the EU Settlement Scheme, called settled or pre-settled status (see Question 6).

Acquiring settled or pre-settled status will allow Swiss citizens to continue to live, study and work in the UK, to have access to public funds and services and to go on to apply for British citizenship if they wish to do so.

Applications are free of charge.

Swiss citizens married to a British citizen also need to apply. However, Swiss-UK dual nationals must not (and cannot) apply. They already have full rights of residence in the UK.

The Settlement Scheme opened fully at the end of March 2019.

Apply to the EU Settlement Scheme (settled and pre-settled status)

Visit the Swiss Embassy webpage for comprehensive FAQs.

The Swiss Benevolent Society are Home Office registered to assist with applications for those in need.
