Close to 140,500 Hungarians have applied to the U.K.'s EU Settlement Scheme, news agency MTI reports, citing data released by the U.K.'s Home Office on Thursday.
The EU settlement scheme is designed to offer EU, non-EU EEA and Swiss citizens living in the United Kingdom before the end of the transition period, and their eligible family members, the opportunity to protect their residence in the United Kingdom after the transition period has ended. The scheme is immigration permission, which can lead to settlement, but does not have to be used to gain settlement.
Over 975,000 Poles and 918,000 Romanians have applied to the scheme.
The deadline for applying is June 30, 2021.
