Un-Settled Status – Stronger Together Seminar Event within IMAGINE! Festival @ zoom
Mar 25 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm


The Home Office European Union Settlement Scheme (EUSS) is supposed to protect the post-Brexit rights of EU Citizens resident in UK prior 31 December 2020.

Stronger Together EUSS Partnership has directly supported nearly half of the 80,000 N. Ireland submissions to date.  By March 2021, there will only be 3 months left to apply before the 30th June deadline.

We plan to celebrate the number of EU citizens choosing to stay here post-Brexit and raise the profile of the scheme to ensure maximum uptake. We will examine the implications of not applying, some issues around the system itself, and ‘imagine’ Belfast if all our EU residents ‘upped and left.’ 

European Union Settlement Scheme (EUSS) was introduced by the Home Office in March 2019 to secure the rights and status of EU/EEA Citizens living in the UK after Brexit. Every individual must apply, including children, before the deadline 30th June 2021.  Failure to apply before the deadline will result in having no immigration status and having your rights diminished post June 2021.

EUSS application process is free and for most can be completed online or via an app on a mobile device. There are three stages of the application: the ID check, residence check and criminality check. As a result, the applicant will be granted Settled Status or Pre-Settled Status depending on the length of their residence in UK. There is no physical proof of the status and one can only ‘view and  prove’ their EUSS status online.

As the June 2021 deadline is approaching fast, we are keen to encourage as many people as possible to apply as well as raise awareness of how to update and prove your immigration status post application. During this event we will briefly reflect on how the Scheme has been rolled out in NI, how many have applied and on the application process itself. We will explore main questions and concerns raised by campaigners and rights based organizations such as the3Million and Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants. We will also explore some case studies presented by Stronger Together caseworkers and  immigration solicitor.
