EU citizens in the Bailiwick who have not signed up to the Settled Status Scheme are being invited to a workshop if they need help with the application.

The event is being held on the 7 March at Beau Sejour and will provide relevant information on how people can register to stay in the Bailiwick, before the end of the UK's Transition Period on the 31 December.

Citizens from the EEA as well as Swiss Nationals will also be able to attend the event.

The scheme allows citizens and their family members to continue to live and work in the Bailiwick of Guernsey. It will also provide them with ongoing rights to healthcare, work arrangements and public services.

The scheme has been open since 1 April 2019 with an extension for applicants to submit their registration forms until June 2021.

The workshop at Beau Sejour will be held in the Cambridge Room from 10am until 3pm.

Now that Brexit has happened, the UK has entered into the transition period and there is more certainty. This workshop, which will be in the form of a "drop in" session, will help us assist those yet to register . We would encourage every employer to publicise the scheme to their staff. The scheme is free and the application process is quick and easy
