Pre-Settled Status for EEA nationals – Who is a qualified person?

  • You have come to the UK recently just on the threshold of Brexit and you don’t know how to qualify your status and what rights you have.
  • You are an EEA citizen, but the period of stay in the UK does not count 5 years?
  • If you do not have 5 years’ continuous residence, you’ll usually get “pre-settled status” instead.

You can stay in the UK for a further 5 years from the date you get pre-settled status, but you must apply again and get settled status if you want to stay here for longer than that.

The EU Settlement Scheme will open fully by 30 March 2019. You may be able to apply if you meet the criteria.

Pre-Settled Status – Changing your pre-settled status to settled status

You can apply to change your status as soon as you’ve got 5 years’ continuous residence. If you apply after April 2019, it will be free.

Pre-Settled Status – Your rights with pre-settled status

You can spend up to 2 years in a row outside the UK without losing your pre-settled status, but you will need to maintain your continuous residence if you want to qualify for settled status.

Pre-Settled Status – You will be able to:


  • work in the UK
  • use the NHS
  • enrol in education or continue studying
  • access public funds such as benefits and pensions, if you’re eligible for them
  • travel in and out of the UK

Any children born in the UK after you’ve got pre-settled status will be automatically eligible for pre-settled status. They will only be a British citizen if they qualify for it through their other parent.
