In line with the Citizens’ Rights Agreements, a person granted pre-settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme can apply for settled status as soon as they qualify for it, generally after they have completed five years’ continuous residence in the UK.

They will have access to comprehensive guidance and their rights will continue to be protected until the outcome of their application for settled status, including any appeal process against refusal.
