What are the consequences of not applying for settled or pre-settled status?

The deadline to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme was 30 June 2021 (unless you are applying as a joining family member). If you did not apply by the deadline, you will no longer have a provable lawful residence status in the UK. You will now face the hostile environment policies and may find it increasingly more difficult or impossible to rent a property, access work, welfare or other services.


You may still be able to submit a late application - see our FAQ on late applications.
