How has Brexit changed things for some UK residents?
Prior to Brexit, many EU nationals have had the freedom to live and work in the UK without any formal visa. There are many individuals that have lived and worked in the UK for years under the old system. Some have put down roots here and developed relationships and had families. The uncertainty surrounding the final details of the Brexit deal is stressful by itself, without adding the extra strain of the eventual requirements.
What can people do?
The scheme for dealing with all of the EU nationals settled in the UK is due to be fully open from 30th March 2019. If this applies to you or members of your family, you will have just over two years to make your application. If you have been resident in the UK for more than 5 years, you will be eligible to apply. There are other circumstances under which you could be able to apply.
