EUSS team at Migrant Centre NI: 

Migrant Centre NI in partnership with Advice NI is providing support to vulnerable EU citizens who need additional help when applying for their immigration status through the Home Office EU Settlement Scheme.

As part of the EUSS support services we are providing:

  • direct help for vulnerable EU citizens through over the phone advice, advice drop in clinics and appointments;
  • information sessions for community groups, businesses, statutory bodies and other organisations;
  • dissemination of information.

Migrant Centre NI is registered with the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner to Level 2.


The EU Settlement Scheme deadline has passed but the EUSS scheme is still in operation.

You can still make a late application if you’ve failed to apply on time. We also provide support with settled status applications, generating shared codes, uploading additional evidence and more.


The Advice NI helpline can be reached on 0800 915 4604 . Option 4.


If you miss the deadline you can still apply for EUSS if you have reasonable grounds for missing the deadline.

The list of ‘reasonable grounds’ is not exhaustive and includes:

  • Children
  • Care leavers
  • Where adults lack the mental / physical capacity to apply
  • Where there are serious medical conditions
  • Victims of trafficking
  • Abusive / controlling relationships.
  • Other compelling or practical reasons

An application should still be accepted but seeking specialist immigration advice and representation is strongly advised if the deadline is missed where, a person:

  • may have been unaware of the requirement to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme by the 30 June deadline
  • may have failed to make an application by the deadline if they had no access to internet
  • had limited computer literacy or limited English language skills
  • had been living overseas


If you need help, would like more information or would like us to deliver an information session, please do not hesitate to contact the Migrant Centre NI:

How to get in touch?


We also offer video calls over ZOOM.
Face-to-face meetings are limited but we are slowly re-opening our services in line with local restrictions and government guidelines.

Drop-in clinics in our offices and at other locations will be announced when safe to do so.
