Încă puteți solicita statutul de stabilit sau pre-stabilit!

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.

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.

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.
