All EU, EEA and Swiss citizens and their family members who were resident in the UK by 31 December 2020, should apply without delay here so they can continue to work, study, and access free healthcare and benefits in the UK after 30 June 2021.
They will need to make an application for every eligible child within a family by 30 June 2021. Parents should apply on behalf of their children, even if they have already applied and been granted a status themselves. Eligible close family members living overseas can apply to join an EU, EEA or Swiss family member who started living in the UK by 31 December 2020. They can apply to come to the UK at any point. More information on joining family members can be found on GOV.UK.
