If you're an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen, you and your family can apply to the EU Settlement Scheme to continue living in the UK as you do now. The EEA includes the EU countries and Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway.
GOV.UK has prepared a step by step guide to help you understand if you need to apply and what you'll need to do if you decide to stay in the UK. This is also available in 26 European languages.
To find out what you need to do and when, use the online tool on GOV.UK.
The deadline for applying is 30 June 2021, or 31 December 2020 if the UK leaves the EU without a deal.
If you need digital assistance completing your EU Settlement, please visit the Colchester Library Community Hub where a staff member will be able to assist you.
You can find more information about Colchester Library on the Essex County Council website.
