End of Free Movement

 Since free movement ceased between EU and the UK on 1st January 2021, all non-UK nations, including EU nationals (excluding citizens of Ireland) require a visa for entry into the UK.

For those who are citizens of the EU and moved to the UK to live prior to 1st January 2021, you may be eligible for the free EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS). This scheme means you are exempt from needing a UK visa to remain in the UK. Applications for this scheme are open until 30th June 2021.

For those who do not qualify for the EU Settlement Scheme, you are legally required to apply for a visa in order to live, work or study in the UK.

It is vital that you choose the correct visa application when applying for a UK Visa and Bernadette can provide guidance on this. The range of personal immigration services RP Crawford & Co Solicitors provides include:


  • Residence Card
  • EEA Application
  • Family Reunion
  • Leave to Remain
  • Citizenship or Naturalisaion
  • Asylum and Humanitarian Protection
  • Immigration Bail & Immigration Appeal
