EU citizens in Wales will still be able to access free and confidential support for their EU Settlement Scheme applications until 31 December 2021, the Welsh Government have confirmed.

The Home Office’s EU Settlement Scheme, known as EUSS, offered EU, non-EU EEA and Swiss citizens, and their eligible family members the opportunity to protect their residency since the UK left the European Union.

The scheme closed at the end of June 2021, however late applications with reasonable grounds are still being accepted by the Home Office.

The announcement confirms access for EU citizens to free support from specialist law firm Newfields Law will continue until the end of 2021.

This is in addition to the confidential support from Citizens Advice Cymru and charity Settled, which the Welsh Government has funded since 2019.
