EU Settlement Scheme video transcript
If you’re an EU Citizen living in Bridgend County Borough, we want you to be able to continue to live, work and access services here even after Brexit.
You can still apply to the EU Settlement Scheme if you can show reasonable grounds for not applying by the deadline.
What is the EU Settlement Scheme?
This is an application that should have been completed by the deadline on Wednesday 30 June.
If your late application is successful, you could be granted pre-settled or settled status.
There are many different reasons that can be classes as reasonable grounds for a late application. To find out more visit the UK Government website.
Who should apply?
Unless you have ‘Indefinite Leave to Remain’ or you are an Irish or British citizen, you should submit a late application.
This includes children who were born in Wales but who do not have British Citizenship.
A British passport should confirm this.
You can also check if you or your child has British Citizenship by visiting the eligibility page.
If you need to apply, each family member must complete an application.
This includes children and anyone under the age of 21.
You can link your child’s application with your own by using a unique reference number.
You’ll be given this after you have completed your own application.
If you need to apply, you won’t be notified by the Home Office, UK/Welsh Government or the local council.
You have to check this yourself.
Please make sure you visit the council’s website to check your eligibility.
Unsure if you or a family member needs to apply?
Don’t worry – you can still get free advice and support.
To find organisations that can help you throughout the process, visit the council’s website.
You can also find guidance in different languages on the council’s website.
We want Bridgend County Borough to continue to be the place that you call home.
Don’t wait – submit a late application as soon as possible!
