Nationwide marketing campaign for EU Settlement Scheme

26 March 2019

The Home Office has launched a new nationwide marketing campaign to encourage EU citizens to apply for the EU Settlement Scheme ahead of its full launch on Saturday 30 March. The campaign will be visible at around 6,000 sites across the UK including in every major city.

Immigration Minister Caroline Nokes said: "It is my priority to make sure that EU citizens, who have built their lives here and who have contributed so much to our society, continue to feel welcome in the UK. That is why I am launching this UK wide campaign, which will include billboards and radio advertising, so that everyone who is eligible knows how to apply and gets the status they need. I want EU citizens to stay and to continue to call the UK their home and I would encourage all EU citizens to apply once the scheme goes live."

The scheme, which has been designed in close consultation with EU citizens, employers and community groups, is free and simple to use via a brand new online application process.

It enables EU citizens to protect the rights they currently have in the UK. Applicants will only need to prove their identity, demonstrate their UK residence, and declare any criminal convictions.

Deal or no deal, EU citizens will have until at least 31 December 2020 to apply.

The application process has been thoroughly tested since August 2018 and so far nearly 200,000 people have received status under the scheme.

To ensure the scheme is a success, the Home Office has boosted EU Settlement Scheme staff numbers to over 1,500, developed an entirely new case working system and created a new resolution centre to resolve telephone, email and online queries.
