Brexit For Individuals

Brexit for Individuals


I am an EU citizen, how will Brexit affect me?


Due to the uncertainty with regards to Brexit we would advise all EU citizens, who are eligible, to apply for   a document confirming their status in the UK.


If you have lived in the UK for a continuous period of  five years and can provide evidence that you have been employed, self-employed, a student or have been self sufficient during this period, we strongly recommend that you apply for a document certifying your  permanent residence. Please note that an additional requirement of holding ‘Comprehensive Sickness Insurance’ will apply if you were a student or self-sufficient during the five year period.


If you have lived in the UK for less than five years, it would also be advisable for you to obtain a registration  certificate evidencing that you are a European national exercising your rights  in the UK.


The UK Government has also recently announced that an agreement has been reached for the rights of European nationals and their family members residing in the UK. This is by way of a new ‘Settled Status’ scheme.  


The ‘Settled Status’ scheme is set to be rolled out sometime in late 2018 and will allow EU Citizens in the UK to obtain a document confirming their status in the UK. The Home Office have promised a cost effective, efficient and streamlined service but no official release date has been confirmed. 


If you are concerned  about the impact of Brexit on your status or are  considering applying for your family members to join you in the UK,   please contact us today on +44(0)203 114 1198 or e-mail us at privateimmigration@duncanlewis.com.
