I am a family member of someone with (pre-) settled status, and I have come to the UK on a visitor visa. Can I apply to the EU Settlement Scheme?

You cannot ‘switch’ from a visitor visa to an EU Settlement Scheme status. You will need to leave the UK and apply to the EU Settlement Scheme from abroad - either for an EU Settlement Scheme family permit or an EU Settlement Scheme status.
