EU Nationals - Important Information

You will probably be aware that as of 31 January 2020, the United Kingdom ceased to be a member of the European Union.

If you hold nationality from a country within the EU, this will affect you. You have until 30 June 2021 to apply for pre-settled or settled status.

It is FREE to apply and you can do this now using the link below:

Glasgow City Council is offering a settlement service to support people with their application:

If you are granted pre-settled status, be aware settled status is not awarded automatically and you must reapply once you meet the criteria for settled status.

You need to apply even if you:
• were born in the UK but are not a British citizen - you can check if you’re a British citizen if you’re not sure
• have a UK ‘permanent residence document’
• are a family member of an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen who does not need to apply - including if they’re from Ireland
• are an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen with a British citizen family member
