Hounslow EU Settlement Service 2020
EU Settlement Scheme – Service Update
We are pleased confirm that the Ealing and Hounslow EU Settlement Service has been extended by the Home Office until the end of June 2020. Due to the current COVID-19 situation in person access to the service has been suspended until further notice. We remain available Monday to Friday via Freephone, Video call, Skype, WhatsAp and will continue to provide telephone advice and support in the current shutdown until normal service can be resumed.
