EU Parents - Important Brexit Information
Brexit will affect the lives of EU citizens and their children. Parents, legal guardians and those with any responsibility for a child/children may need to take action to ensure they secure the rights of those children in the UK. According to The Migration Observatory, there are over 900,000 children of non-Irish EU citizens living in the UK.
In many cases, parents, carers or legal guardians may not know that these children can and need to apply. This includes 239,000 children born in the UK, many of whom may not be British citizens.
All applications must be made to the EU settlement scheme by 30 June 2021.
