The Government has made clear, where a person eligible for leave under the EU Settlement Scheme has reasonable grounds for missing the

application deadline of 30 June 2021, they will be given a further opportunity to apply.

We have not published a list of reasonable grounds for missing the deadline as it is a year away and the focus should be on encouraging people to apply. We will however publish clear guidance for caseworkers in due course to ensure consistency of approach.
