EU Settlement Scheme information session

Watch a live recording of the event and download a copy of the presentation given to University colleagues by Emma Brooksbank, Partner and Immigration Specialist at Freeths Solicitors.

This information session, recorded on 19 November 2018, covers the EU Settlement Scheme pilot, the application process and the scheme in general. In it, Emma addresses common confusion points about who can and can’t apply for the voluntary pilot, answers a number of questions about eligibility for settled status in different circumstances and shares information about reimbursement of employee application costs and the option to apply to the University interest free loan scheme to help with the cost of family member applications (find out more in our FAQs).

At the end of the presentation is a question and answer session which covers several themes, including:

  • Use of biometric and non-biometric (old style) passports
  • Residency for children and family members
  • Access to NHS care
  • Gaps in tax records and residency in the UK
  • And much more*

*During the session a question was asked about whether applicants should use a personal or work email account to apply for the pilot. Emma has checked with the Home Office and received the following response:

“It doesn’t matter which email address an applicant uses to apply under the pilot. I would recommend they use their personal email address in case they move on from their current job. Also, their immigration status is theirs personally and in no way attached to their employment. They should use the same email address all the way through the application.”
