EU citizens living in the UK after it leaves the EU

The UK government has reached an agreement with the EU that will protect the rights of EU citizens and their family members living in the UK. It has also reached an agreement with Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein, and a separate agreement with Switzerland.

These agreements mean that most citizens from the EU, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Switzerland will need to apply to stay in the UK. They can then continue living their lives here as they do now.

Applications can be made online.

Citizenship Ceremonies

Once we have been notified by the Home Office that your British citizenship application has been successful, we will invite you to attend a group citizenship ceremony. You must wait to hear from us even if you have received confirmation from the Home Office. It may be that we receive your documents from the Home Office later. As soon as we receive your documents we will contact you.
