21 January 2019-Applications for the Settlement Scheme are now free of charge for EU citizens

On 21 January, the Prime Minister announced that there will be no fee when the Settlement Scheme opens fully on 30 March 2019.

Anyone who has applied already, or who applies and pays a fee during the test phases, will have their fee refunded. Details of the refunds process will be published in due course. If you want to apply now, the fee (which will be refunded) is:

  • £65 if you’re 16 or over
  • £32.50 if you’re under 16   

Currently, Apple devices cannot be used to complete the online application. For a comprehensive summary of all you need to know regarding the Settlement Scheme and how to apply, explore GOV.UK’s dedicated Settlement Scheme section HERE   

The Settled Status application will be discu ssed in much more depth at the EU citizen’s rights information sessions hosted by the European Commission in the UK over the months leading up to Brexit (29th March 2019) and beyond. See our previous post for current information dates
