Applying to the EU Settlement Scheme

Apple 0

Since the UK is about to leave the EU, we had to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme so we can stay here after Brexit and get pre-settled status.

The processing time is short, we applied on Sunday (31st March) and received an answer on the following Tuesday. We both got the pre-settled status and can apply for settled status once we are living here for five years.

We’re not sure how this works together with the Biometric Residence Card, but I suspect we can extend it – hopefully – without an issue before it expires.

In the past years since we are living and working in London, we had no visa-related issues. Sometimes at the border, the officers were asking some – in my opinion, uncomfortable questions but they let my husband enter anyway.

I just finished my university degree and hopefully will have more time to update the blog as well.
