EU, EEA and Swiss citizens in the UK before 31 December
EU, EEA and Swiss citizens resident in the UK on or before 31 December 2020 should not apply through the points-based immigration system. They should apply to the EU Settlement Scheme and have until 30 June 2021 to make an application.
So it doesn’t say what an EEA national who has not applied by 30.036.21 is supposed to do.
I know they will accept late applications to EUSS if the S of S accept it is ‘reasonable’ but we don’t (from what I have seen) have a clear definition of this, only some examples.
So if not accepted for a late application, and can’t apply for a visa through new immigration system, what can they do?
And it still leaves the issue of those with pre-settled status only who would have had a Right to Reside- were the R2R rules still in place- can do about benefits entitlement
Anyone any ideas?
