If my children are born or adopted after 31 December 2020, do I need to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme for them?

If you started living in the UK by 31 December 2020, your children will be eligible to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme.

However, please be mindful of the fact that, for children born or adopted before 1 April 2021, you had to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme for them by 30 June 2021. For children born or adopted thereafter (1 April 2021 onwards), you must apply within 3 months of the date they were born or adopted.

For more details on this and other information about children’s applications, please visit the Government's website:
