Prime Minister scraps £65 fee for EU citizens to stay in UK

Theresa May has scrapped the £65 fee millions of EU citizens were going to have to pay to secure the right to continue living in the UK after Brexit.

The Prime Minister, Theresa May announced yesterday that the £65 payable by EU citizens as part of their settled status application is being scrapped.  This is welcome news especially after the recent doubling in cost of the Immigration Health Surcharge which came into effect at the start of January 2019. For those who are not aware EU citizens and their family members  will be able to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme to continue living in the UK after 30 June 2021. If your application is successful, you’ll get either settled or pre-settled status. If you have  previously been  granted “permanent residence” you will still need to make a settled status application.
