Staying in the UK after Brexit

This advice applies to England

If you're from the European Union (EU) and already living in the UK, you can apply to stay after Brexit. You can do this from March 2019 - you don't need to do anything yet. You'll have until 30 June 2021 to apply.

You'll need to do things like:

  • prove who you are - for example with a valid passport or national ID card
  • prove you've been living in the UK, usually for 5 years - this can be through things like payslips, utility bills or letters from your employer
  • explain if you've got a criminal record either here or in your home country - you might still be able to stay in the UK if you have
  • pay an application fee (some people won't need to - find out if you'll need to pay on GOV.UK)

You can find out more about staying in the UK after Brexit on GOV.UK.
