star this property answer text <p>The Government’s policy paper (Cm 9464), which was laid before Parliament on 26 June, proposes that EU citizens who arrive in the UK before the specified date, have five years’ continuous residence and who do not breach the requirements in relation to criminality, public policy and public security, will be able to apply for UK settled status. The specified date is subject to negotiation, but will be no earlier than 29 March 2017 and not later than the date of the UK’s withdrawal from the EU.</p><p>For those who arrive after the specified date, there will be no change to their rights while the UK remains in the EU. After exit, a grace period of blanket permission will apply to them, while they make an application to the Home Office for permission to stay in the UK in accordance with the new rules applying to EU citizens, which are yet to be determined. The ability of EU citizens arriving after the specified date to subsequently obtain further or indefinite permission to stay will depend on the rules in place at the time. Proposals for managing EU migration post-exit will be published as soon as possible, allowing businesses and individuals time to plan and prepare.</p><p>It is our intention that all EU citizens living lawfully in the UK before the specified date are covered by our proposals. It will not be necessary to be present in the UK on the specified date and – as is currently the case under the Free Movement Directive - there will be flexibility for temporary absences. This will be subject to negotiations and a reciprocal deal with the EU.</p><p>All EU citizens (and their families) in the UK, regardless of when they arrived, will, on the UK’s exit, need to obtain an immigration status in UK law. They will need to apply to the Home Office for permission to stay, which will be evidenced through a residence document.</p><p>Further details of the Government’s proposals are in the policy paper on ‘Safeguarding the position of EU citizens in the UK and UK nationals in the EU’, which is availableat the following link: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/safeguarding-the-position-of-eu-citizens-in-the-uk-and-uk-nationals-in-the-eu" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/safeguarding-the-position-of-eu-citizens-in-the-uk-and-uk-nationals-in-the-eu</a></p>
