Кандидатстване по Схемата за уседналост на граждани на ЕС (EUSS) след крайния срок 30 юни

Тези, които отговарят на условията за кандидатстване по Схемата на ЕС за уседналост, все още могат да кандидатстват за постоянен статут на уседналост или временен статут на уседналост дори след крайния срок 30 юни 2021 г. Тези, които са закъснели да  кандидатстват обаче, са по преценка. Това означава, че кандидатите трябва да обяснят и докажат защо не са успели да кандидатстват преди крайния срок. В резултат на това, служителят на Министерство на вътрешните работи (Home Office) ще прецени дали кандидата попада в една от категориите за основателни причини за подаване на късно заявление и ще реши дали да приеме това заявление или не.

Without a valid confirmation of the right to work, employers cannot sign new staff. If they do, they can face a penalty up to £20,000 for employing undocumented workers.
