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.
Cei care sunt eligibili pentru Schema de stabilire a cetățenilor UE pot solicita în continuare statutul de stabilit sau pre-stabilit chiar și după termenul limită de 30 iunie 2021. Cererile cu întârziere sunt însă la discreția Ministerului de Interne (Home Office). Aceasta înseamnă că solicitanții trebuie să explice și să dovedească de ce nu au putut solicita statutul înainte de termenul limită. Asistentul de caz al Ministerului de Interne va evalua apoi dacă solicitantul se încadrează într-una dintre categoriile de motive rezonabile pentru a face o cerere cu întârziere, și va decide dacă acceptă sau nu această cerere.
From 1st July 2021 UK employers face changes in right to work checks for EEA nationals. Until 30th June 2021, EEA nationals could prove their right to work by presenting a valid ID document but now, new employees must provide proof that they have been granted (or at least applied for) status under the EU Settlement Scheme.
Pe 6 mai 2021, Scoția va organiza alegerile pentru Parlamentul scoțian.

On 25 February 2021, The Home Office published the latest quarterly information on applications received and cases concluded to the EUSS for local authorities and regions from 28 August 2018 to 31 December 2020. We have decided to have a closer look at the figures for local authorities in Scotland and nationalities that submitted the most applications in each of those local authorities.
