What is an EU Settlement Scheme Travel Permit?

The government updated their policy on the EU Settlement Scheme Family Permit on 1 October 2019. Many people are perplexed by the use of the term EUSS Travel Permit and so this blog will aim to explain what the term means.

The EUSS Travel Permit is for non-EEA citizens who have been granted leave under the EU Settlement Scheme, but have lost their biometric residence card outside of the UK. The Travel Permit along with a valid passport, grants entry clearance to allow them to travel to the UK. It is important to remember that once they are in the UK, they will need to apply for a replacement biometric residence card.

An applicant can make an application for an EU Settlement Scheme Travel Permit under Appendix EU (Family Permit).

Eligibility

An EUSS Travel Permit will be granted if:

  • The applicant has made a valid application
  • The applicant meets the eligibility requirements
  • It is not refused on grounds of suitability
