Settled status – New information on what you need to know if you are an EU citizen and have a criminal record

The EU Settlement Scheme protects the rights you currently have in the UK through the process of applying for settled or pre-settled status. As part of the application process, there are questions about criminal records and checks are carried out by the Home Office. Many people with a criminal record feel nervous about applying and are worried they will be refused.

Today we have published new information about the EU Settlement Scheme for applicants with a criminal record as well as details of organisations that can provide specialist advice. You can read the information here.
