Don’t miss the deadline to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme
Following the UK’s departure from the European Union, European citizens living in the UK are required to apply to the scheme to continue living, working and studying in the UK after 30 June.
More than 10,000 residents across the borough have successfully applied to the scheme.
Help and support to apply for the scheme is available locally through Citizens Advice Basingstoke and Tadley. Other support the charity will provide includes guidance on employment rights and EU employees’ rights to stay, UK citizens living overseas and looking to return and consumer concerns such as travel insurance.
As well as help and support from Citizens Advice, digital assistance is available for residents who do not have the access, skills or confidence to complete the online form by appointment. To arrange an appointment, please call We Are Digital on 03333 445675.
Leader of Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council Cllr Ken Rhatigan said: “We are pleased that a number of European citizens have chosen to live in Basingstoke and Deane and we are keen to ensure they stay.
“With 30 June fast approaching, it is incredibly important that all eligible residents do not miss the deadline for applying to the EU Settlement Scheme to ensure they can continue to live in the borough and get the support they need.”
