EU Settlement Scheme – Children’s Applications

We hope our regular subscribers will forgive us for including another reminder that the deadline for the EU Settlement Scheme is fast approaching on 30th June 2021. Adults must apply before their children, but an adult’s Settled or Pre-Settled Status will NOT automatically transfer to their children, so each child must have their own application. Children born in the UK who are not British citizens will also still need to apply. More information on applications for children can be seen here.

Need help applying to the European Union Settlement Scheme? Birmingham City Council is running an appointment-only service to help scan and verify ID documents for the application process, with more details here. Get FREE support and advice from community organisations here, including Settled, an independent charity providing free and trustworthy information, advice and support in different languages to EU citizens in the UK. Settled can be contacted by email: or by phone on their multilingual helplines; see the Settled website here for full details.
