If you do not have 5 years’ continuous residence, you’ll usually get ‘pre-settled status’ instead. You can stay in the UK for a further 5 years from the date you get pre-settled status, but you must apply again and get settled status if you want to stay here for longer than that.

Changing Your Pre-Settled Status To Settled Status

You can apply to change your status as soon as you’ve got 5 years’ continuous residence. If you apply after April 2019, it will be free.

What Are Your Rights With Pre-Settled Status?

You can spend up to 2 years in a row outside the UK without losing your pre-settled status, but you will need to maintain your continuous residence if you want to qualify for settled status.

With pre-settled status, you will be able to:

  • work in the UK
  • use the NHS
  • enrol in education or continue studying
  • access public funds such as benefits and pensions, if you’re eligible for them
  • travel in and out of the UK

Any children born in the UK after you’ve got pre-settled status will be automatically eligible for pre-settled status. They will only be a British citizen if they qualify for it through their other parent.

Viewing And Proving Your Pre Settled Status

If you successfully apply under the EU settlement scheme for pre settled status, the Home Office, UKVI will email you a link to an online service that you can use to view and prove your pre settled status. You will not get a physical document unless both of the following apply:

  • you’re from outside the EU
  • you do not already have a biometric residence card
