European Union Settlement Scheme to go live on 30 March

Friday, 8 March 2019

The Isle of Man European Union Settlement Scheme will go live on 30 March 2019.

The Scheme sets out the basis on which a European Economic Area (EEA) citizen and their family members, and the family members of a qualifying British citizen, will, if they apply under it, be granted an immigration status of indefinite leave to enter or remain or limited leave to enter or remain. There is no application fee for this immigration status.

The application form together with guidance notes will be available to download from the Isle of Man Government website, and also from the Isle of Man Immigration Office, from 30 March 2019. 

Applications should be submitted to the Isle of Man Immigration Office by post or in person and follow the same format in which other immigration applications are currently made in the Isle of Man. The Isle of Man Immigration Service aim to process applications within 28 business days.

Successful applicants will receive a physical document (status letter) confirming their grant of leave under appendix EU to the Isle of Man Immigration Rules. 

UK scheme

The Isle of Man Immigration Service has progressed with the UK Home Office the provision for EEA nationals who are resident in the Isle of Man to make an application for their immigration status to the UK scheme if they wish. Eligible applicants can make an application from 9 April 2019.

The UK scheme will accept eligible applications from EEA nationals residing in the Isle of Man, their family members, and the family members of a qualifying British citizen, and if successful will be granted an immigration status of either indefinite leave to enter or limited leave to enter. There is no application fee for this immigration status.

Successful applicants will be given proof of their status through a UK online service confirming their grant of leave under appendix EU to the UK’s Immigration Rules.
