The UK Government has made the process an easy one! By allowing you to apply for status, simply by downloading an app. They have hired 1,500 new caseworkers and have invested £175m in the scheme.
People applying for status will need to prove they have lived in the UK for at least six months in any 12 month period over a total of five years.
If their settled status is granted, they will be able to stay and work in the UK for as long as they like, use the NHS, access benefits and pensions, and travel in and out of the country.
A person given pre-settled status will be allowed to remain in the UK for a further five years. After the five years, the person can apply to change their status to “permanent”.
