Today, on June 23, 2023, we commemorate the 7th anniversary of the Brexit referendum—a day that brought about significant changes to the United Kingdom's relationship with the European Union.
Citizens Rights Project has secured funding to organize FREE multilingual in-person welfare workshops throughout Scotland to enhance the understanding of EU citizens and their family members regarding their rights.
In late February, the Home Office published more detailed, quarterly statistics and we decided to have a closer look on the figures for Scotland and Scottish local authorities. We decided to have a look at the EUSS numbers by 31st December 2022 and compare them with those from the end of 2021.
Border rules for EU/EEA/Swiss nationals and their family members entering the UK have changed as a result of Brexit. In this post, we cover different scenarios depending on nationality, immigration status and whether you have a Certificate of Application (COA) or have applied to the EU Settlement Scheme or not.
If you were granted pre-settled status, also known as limited leave to remain, after applying to the EU Settlement Scheme, you will need to apply for settled status (indefinite leave to remain) before your pre-settled expires.
Are you an EU or non-EU national in an abusive relationship whose immigration status depends on an EU/EEA/Swiss partner with settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS)? If you are thinking about leaving your partner (or have already left them) because of domestic violence or abuse, and you are worried about your immigration status in the UK, you should seek legal advice from a solicitor or an OISC adviser and collect as much evidence as possible.
Tiem, kuriem ir tiesības pieteikties ES Pilsoņa statusm*, joprojām var pieteikties pastāvīgā vai pagaidu iedzīvotāja statusa saņemšanai, kaut arī pieteikšanās termiņš 2021. gada 30. jūnijs jau ir beidzies. Novēloti pieteikumi ir pašu pieteicēju ziņā. Tas nozīmē, ka pieteikuma iesniedzējam ir jāpaskaidro un jāpierāda, kādēļ peieteikšanās nav notikusi noteiktajā termiņā. Iekšlietu ministrijas darbinieks (referents) izvērtēs vai pieteikuma iesniedzējs atbilst vienai no kategorijām un bija pamatots iemesls novēlotam pieteikumam, un izlems vai pieteikumu pieņemt, vai noraidīt.
