Brexit advice for non-UK European Union citizens

A checking service is being offered for residents who are required to go through the Home Office EU settlement scheme process.

The EU Settlement Scheme allows European Union (EU), European Economic Area (EEA) or Swiss citizens to continue to live, work and study in the UK without any immigration time restrictions after the UK leaves the European Union. 

This will mean you can continue living in the UK after 31 December 2020 and you will have until 30 June 2021 to apply for either settled or pre-settled status. 

Under the checking service, the Isle of Wight Council’s registrar team will be supporting EU, EEA and Swiss citizens complete the digital identity verification part of the process.

Find out more about using this service on the Isle of Wight here.
