New Changes to UK Immigration Rules: EU Settlement Scheme

EU Settlement Scheme
Call NA Law Solicitors for EU Settlement Scheme Changes

Here at NA Law Solicitors, we understand the complexities and concerns that come with navigating the EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS) and securing a positive visa outcome. The recent changes to the scheme have created some uncertainty, especially for individuals with pre-settled status and family members seeking the EUSS Family Permit. This blog will walk you through the key updates, address common pain points, and offer solutions to ensure you make informed decisions about your immigration status.

Automatic Extension of Pre-Settled Status

Are you worried about your pre-settled status expiring before you obtain settled status? The recent implementation of the judgement in Independent Monitoring Authority for the Citizens’ Rights Agreements v the Secretary of State for the Home Department ensures that your status will be automatically extended by 2 years before it expires, saving you time and money on unnecessary applications. No action is required from your end, as you will be notified of the extension. Rest assured that your immigration status will remain secure.

Deadline for EUSS Application

The Immigration Rules for the EUSS now require a deadline for your application or a valid reason for any delay. If you are facing reasonable grounds for a late application, this must be addressed as a preliminary issue before the eligibility and suitability requirements are considered. Our team at NA Law Solicitors can assist you in preparing your application with all the necessary details, ensuring it meets the requirements for a seamless process.

EUSS Family Permit Changes

The EUSS Family Permit will no longer accept new applications for family members under the ‘Surinder Singh’ and ‘Zambrano’ routes from 08 August 2023. However, if you are already on these routes or have a pending application by that date, you can still proceed. We understand that this change might be unsettling, but don’t worry – our expert solicitors can help you explore alternative family immigration routes and guide you through the best options for your specific case.

Navigating the EUSS and the recent updates can be challenging, but you don’t have to do it alone. At NA Law Solicitors, our mission is to save you time and money while securing a positive visa outcome. If you have any questions or concerns about your immigration status, don’t hesitate to contact us. Our experienced team is here to assist you every step of the way.
