A new public test phase of the EU Settled Status application process will open on Monday 21 January 2019, in which any EU citizens with a valid passport, will be able to apply for settled or pre-settled status.

On 21 January the Prime Minister announced that there will be no fee when the EU Settlement Scheme opens fully on 30 March 2019. Anyone who has applied already, or who applies and pays a fee during the test phases, will have their fee refunded.

Details of the refunds process will be published by the Government shortly.

If you want to apply now, the fee (which will be refunded) is:

£65 if you’re 16 or over

£32.50 if you’re under 16

If you have recently submitted a claim for reimbursement through HR that has not yet been processed, we will contact you directly.
