Asked by Lord Greaves

Home Office
Immigration: EU Nationals
To ask Her Majesty's Government whether the failure of any applicant for settled status by EU citizens in the UK to take out comprehensive health insurance will have any impact on the decision whether to grant such status.
Answered on: 04 March 2019

The UK has decided, as a matter of domestic policy, that the main requirement for eligibility under the EU Settlement Scheme will be continuous residence in the UK. Those applying under the scheme will not be required to show that they meet all the requirements of current free movement rules, such as any requirement to have held comprehensive sickness insurance or generally to detail the exercise of specific rights (for example, the right to work) under EU law.
