EU Citizens In Scotland To Get Help And Advice

Advice centres are to be set up across Scotland to enable EU citizens to obtain information in the months ahead as the UK leaves the EU on March 29th 2019 with a no deal scenario becoming ever more likely. Funded by the Scottish Government the centres will be able to advise people on their rights and entitlements. A group of leading academics is also being convened to examine issues around migration and Scotland’s needs for a policy suited to its own demographic.

Scottish Government Support For EU Citizens Living In Scotland

” it is important that EU citizens who apply for settled status fully understand their different rights of appeal depending on when they apply. We understand that they will have a right to request an administrative review if they apply before March 2019. However those who apply after March 2019 will be entitled to a statutory right of appeal and it is vital that EU citizens are clear about their options before they apply." Fiona Hyslop, Scottish External Affairs Secretary.
