Around 33,000 people living in Croydon are citizens of EU countries and many more work at businesses in Croydon.
To have the right to remain in the UK after Brexit, non-British citizens of EU countries, non-EU countries in the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland have to apply for settled status in the United Kingdom.
Representatives from Croydon Council, the European Commission and immigration law firm Seraphus will give up-to-date information about the EU Settlement Scheme and how to apply for it, followed by a question and answer session.
- Settled status applications are for people who have lived and worked in the UK continually for the five years up to 30 September 2020.
- People who have lived in the UK for less than five years by this date, can apply for pre-settled status. This means they can go on to achieve settled status after living in the UK continuously for five years.
