ONELAW CHAMBERS IMMIGRATION CASE SUCCESS STORY – Indefinite Leave to Remain Granted to Non-EEA National under the EU Settlement Scheme

We are very happy to record another Successful EU Settlement Scheme Application for one of our immigration clients. Whilst EU Settlement Scheme Applications are usually straightforward and easy to understand, our immigration clients find comfort in instructing our Immigration Solicitors and Barristers to prepare their Successful EU Settlement Scheme Applications so that the worries of making mistakes leading to unsuccessful application are prevented and that a successful outcome is achieved without any stress and tension. We at OneLaw Chambers are here to help you submit your Successful EU Settlement Scheme Application with a stress-free and friendly experience.   

 

Summary of Successful EU Settlement Scheme Application

 

This Successful EU Settlement Scheme Application concerned an applicant, who was a non-EEA national spouse of a Polish national, being an EEA national living and working in the UK. The applicant entered the UK in September 2015 with an EEA Family Permit valid for 6 months. In March 2016, the applicant obtained an EEA Residence Card valid for 5 years. The last application the applicant applied was for Settled Status under the EU Settlement Scheme. We submitted the EU Settlement Scheme application in February 2021 and the applicant received a successful outcome in under a month in March 2021.

 

 

How this Successful EU Settlement Scheme Application may apply to you

 

The decision in this Successful EU Settlement Scheme Application applies to all EU Settlement Scheme Applications for Pre-Settled Status and Settled Status. Due to Brexit and new immigration rules introduced by the UK Home Office, you are only now eligible to apply under the EU Settlement Scheme if your EEA national family member was living in the UK before 31 December 2020. If your EEA national family members have lived in the UK for less than 5 years, you will be given Pre Settled Status under the EU Settlement Scheme. If you and your EEA national family member has lived and worked in the UK for a continuous period of at least 5 years, you will be given Settled Status under the EU Settlement Scheme and Indefinite Leave to Remain confirming your permanent settlement in the UK. 

 

As the deadline of 30 June 2021 for submitting applications under the EU Settlement Scheme is fast approaching, it is very important to ensure that you receive a successful outcome on your application that you receive specialist legal advice on immigration law and that you engage the services of specialist Immigration Solicitors and Barristers like our team at OneLaw Chambers to prepare and submit your EU Settlement Scheme Application. Please see our previous article on “Make your permanent residence visa application under the EU Settlement Scheme before the 30 June 2021 deadline” for further details on the requirements.

 

 

What happens if you do not apply for Pre-Settled or Settled Status under the EU Settlement Scheme before the 30 June 2021 deadline 

 

The UK Government’s objectives following the aftermath of Brexit was to depart from the lenient approach taken towards travelling and working in the UK and Europe and create a level playing field between migrants coming to live and work in the UK from Europe and the rest of the world. Therefore, EU nationals and their family members will no longer be able to benefit from easier and less restrictive means of living and working in the UK they had enjoyed under the EU Regulations after the 30 June 2021 deadline. 

 

This means that if you fail to apply for the EU Settlement Scheme visa before 30 June 2021 and obtain either pre-settled or settled status, you will no longer be able to enjoy the following rights and privileges in the UK:

 

  • You and your family members will not be able to work in the UK unless your employer becomes a licensed Sponsorship Licence holder and sponsors you to work in the UK;
  • You and your family members will no longer be able to access medical help under the NHS for free;
  • You and your family members will not be able to study in the UK unless your academic institution is a licensed Sponsorship Licence holder and sponsors you to study in the UK and you will be subject to higher tuition fees as an overseas student;
  • You and your family members will no longer be able to access public funds such as benefits and pensions;
  • You and your family members will not be able to travel to and from the UK without a visa.

 

PLEASE NOTE that even if you are granted pre-settled or settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme, you will not be able to bring any family members to the UK under the EU Settlement Scheme after 30 June 2021, so any family members you want to bring to the UK will have to apply before 30 June 2021.
