Immigration barrister Colin Yeo set out the main issues facing EU citizens in the UK now the deadline for applying for settled status (EUSS) passed.

In a talk given to our all-party parliamentary group meeting on July 6, Colin Yeo, author of the book ‘Britain’s Broken Immigration System and How to Fix It’, presented the changes to how the immigration system works in practise in the UK for EU citizens, including concerns around the new immigration checks to be conducted by employers, landlords, NHS staff and others.

Colin Yeo, a barrister at Garden Court Chambers, then listed five different groups of EU citizens and gave details of how each group is likely to be impacted after the EUSS deadline. In our video recording of his talk he describes the challenges that those who have got settled status and pre-settled status could continue to face, such as potential discrimination when applying for jobs and renting a property without a physical proof of status.

Colin Yeo also set out the risks for those still awaiting a decision on their application, those who haven’t yet applied, but later do, and those who don’t apply in proving and losing their immigration status.

The recording has been divided into sections making it easy to skip between the different sections dealing with the different groups of EU citizens impacted.
