The United Kingdom (UK) left the European Union (EU) on 31 January 2020.

So, the question is what does the future hold?

Under the European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Act 2020, the UK-EU enter into a new relationship.

Therefore, it is paramount for an EU, EEA or Swiss national (including the family) to make an application under EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS) to continue living in the UK. However, those who are Irish citizens or have indefinite leave to remain (ILR) may be able to stay in the UK.

On EEA Nationals, the following factors continue to be relevant:

  • Who are EEA nationals?
  • What is their immigration status?
  • Rights under EU law
  • The Immigration (European Economic Area) Regulations 2016
  • Chart Cross – referencing Key aspects of the 2016 Regulations and 2004 Directive
