400,000 EU citizens living in the UK given 28-day warning to apply for post-Brexit right to remain

The UK Home Office has announced that EU citizens who fail to apply under the settlement scheme will be given a 28-day warning by immigration enforcement officials, with 400,000 cases still outstanding a week before the deadline.

Speaking on Wednesday, Britain’s immigration minister, Kevin Foster, said that individuals who fail to apple for settled status by the June 30 deadline will not immediately lose their rights, which are protected by law.

Instead, immigration officials will begin to issue 28-day warnings to those who are eligible for the scheme, advising them to submit their application, which gives them security of residence, travel, employment, and access to the healthcare and benefits system.
