To ask Her Majesty's Government how many EU citizens are expected to achieve settled status in each calendar year from 2021 to 2026.
2 July 2021
A person granted pre-settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme can apply for settled status as soon as they qualify for this. Applicants who have completed five years’ continuous residence, or where other criteria for eligibility for settled status without the length of continuous residence are met, are eligible for settled status.
The Home Office cannot assess a person’s eligibility for settled status until they make an application to the scheme, and therefore cannot state how many of those granted pre-settled status or who are yet to apply to the scheme will be eligible for settled status in the period sought.
