I have met many ambassadors from EU Member States to discuss citizens’ rights and the EU Settlement Scheme, and requested they share information about the Scheme with their citizens in the UK and encourage them to apply.

Home Office officials also hold monthly meetings with representatives of the EU27 about the EU Settlement Scheme to discuss the design and development of the Scheme. The meetings have included discussions about communications, and materials which EU27 consulates and embassies might find useful to help inform their citizens.

Home Office officials have also taken part in many events hosted by EU27 consulates and embassies aimed at informing their citizens about the Scheme and sources of information.
