Minutes numbered for the request of settled status: the permanent residence permit in the UK which many European citizens will be able to apply for until the end of this month. A certification that will be issued on one condition: you will have to prove “that you have lived in the area continuously for at least five years”. Otherwise you can request the pre-settled status: there temporary residence, waiting to pass the period of time necessary for the official one. Those who do not meet these requirements therefore, from June 30 onwards, will be officially considered a illegal resident. A situation “in the balance”, which according to the latest statistics published, will put thousands of European citizens at stake. The new study of the Uk Think Tank in a Changing Europe, entitled The Eu Settlement Scheme- reported from Courier service– reveals in fact that 320,000 European citizens are still awaiting a decision on their status and risk falling into legal limbo from 1 July. If applicants will not be able to prove that they are entitled to permanently remain in the UK – he concludes the CorSera– will lose their rights immediately, even if their application is valid.
