Brighton and Hove Green Party is today reminding EU Citizens in the City to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS) ahead of the 30th June 2021 deadline.
EU Citizens have less than 7 weeks to apply for settled status to stay in the UK, as the EUSS closes for applications on 30th June 2021.
As the country celebrates Europe Day, Greens say that today is an important day to raise awareness of the impending deadline.
Figures released earlier this year show that more than 26,000 EU citizens have applied for the EUSS in Brighton and Hove.
Councillor Marianna Ebel, the council’s Brexit lead said:
“This Europe Day, I want to once again share the message that we want EU Citizens to stay in Brighton & Hove.
“While we are no longer a member of the European Union, the friendships that have grown over the last decades between British people and EU citizens will be cherished.
“I’d like to wish all EU citizens and all those who still feel European a happy Europe Day and ask that they share the importance of applying before the deadline.”
