The EU Settlement Scheme is a free Scheme which enables EU, EEA and Swiss citizens resident in the UK, and their family members, to obtain the status they will require in order to live and work in the UK after it leaves the EU. The Government has always been clear that we will take a pragmatic approach and, in line with the Withdrawal Agreement, allow those with reasonable grounds for missing the deadline a reasonable further opportunity to apply.

As set out in the agreed <em>New Decade, New Approach</em> deal, the Government will legislate to guarantee unfettered access for Northern Ireland’s businesses to the whole of the UK internal market, and ensure that this legislation is in force for 1 January 2021.</p><p> </p><p>The Prime Minister has been clear that, beyond our obligations under international law, there will be no new checks and processes on the movement of goods from Northern Ireland to GB.
