The UK’s decision to leave the European Union means that the rights of EU citizens living in the UK and UK citizens living in the EU will change. Citizens Advice Scotland have online support and a free phone helpline for anyone that has questions or needs assistance with Brexit.
EU nationals living in the UK and wish to stay need to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme for the right to remain here after Brexit. If you have issues for any reason including:
- limited access to the internet
- difficulty getting the evidence you need to apply
- being at greater risk due to personal circumstances
- having specific immigration or residency issues.
You will be able to get free, confidential and impartial advice from their website, in person at your local bureau and on the phone. The new service has a national helpline 0800 916 9847 and is open Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm.
