Family members of eligible EU citizens resident in the UK before we leave the EU will be able to apply for settled status after five years, whether they are EU or non-EU citizens. They will be subject to the same rules that apply to non-EU nationals joining British citizens, or alternatively to the post-exit immigration arrangements for EU citizens who arrive after the specified date.
