There is still much work to be done encouraging EU citizens who wish to continue to live in the UK to register under EUSS. Deadline for applications will depend on whether or not the EU and UK approve a deal for the UK’s departure. In a no-deal scenario the cut off point is likely to be 31st December 2020.
