As I mentioned on the phone, you are probably aware that as a result of Brexit, Polish citizens and their family members must apply for a new immigration status under the UK Government’s EU Settlement Scheme if they intend to continue to live in the UK. Failing to do so will result in these citizens not having an immigration status in the UK beyond 30 June 2021.
Vulnerable groups of citizens – such as the elderly, those with lower digital literacy and limited access to the online application process, children in care, those with lower levels of English, those who live in poverty and many more) – may not be aware that they need to take action and could find it more challenging to submit an application for the new status. Furthermore, in the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic helping citizens through face-to-face contacts has become more difficult than ever.
In order to get information to those who need this the most the EU Delegation has published a series of information leaflets which are available here:
- What you need to know as an EU citizen living in the UK
- What you need to know as a senior EU citizen living in the UK
- What you need to know as a non-EU citizen living in the UK if you have, or had, a family connection to an EU citizen
- What you need to know if your child is an EU citizen or if your child is not an EU citizen but you are
We understand that you may have had the capacity before Covid-19 to reach Polish citizens in the UK. In case you still can, we’d be grateful if you could share the above online publications through your channels.
Thank you for any help raising awareness amongst Polish citizens and their family members.
