The post Brexit transition period has ended, and EEA/EU nationals have become subject to the same immigration rules as third country nationals. However, there are still some misconceptions about the rights of EEA/EU nationals. Our specialist immigration lawyers can advise you on the EU Settlement Scheme and help you and your family members apply for the visa that's right for your circumstances.

Benefits we bring to you 

Our immigration lawyers in Glasgow and Edinburgh have successfully guided many EU nationals through the EU Settlement Scheme, securing their right to stay in the UK. If you or your family members have pre-settled or settled status, you might still need advice on family member applications, managing absences, or updating your details with the Home Office. 

For EU nationals outside the settlement scheme, choosing the right visa and ensuring eligibility before arriving in the UK is crucial. While EU/EEA nationals can visit the UK, switching visas from within the UK isn't allowed, and there are strict rules on what visitors can do. With a rise in entry refusals since the start of 2021, understanding your immigration options beforehand is more important than ever. 

Our immigration layers have helped people across the world with their applications. We’ll streamline the process for you, offering clear, practical advice on: 

  • The best visa category for you 

  • The documents needed for the application to avoid a refusal 

  • The application process you’ll need to follow  

  • Long-term considerations, and when you’ll likely be able to apply for indefinite leave to remain (a right to stay in the UK permanently) 

Should you need a little extra help, we also offer fixed-fee packages that include: 

  • Providing advice on how to apply 

  • Preparing visa applications for you 

  • Reviewing supporting documents  

  • Crafting a cover letter for the application


If you would like to discuss how we can help with the application process, please get in touch. 

Positive reputation, excellent advice and guidance in navigating the UK immigration policies and paperwork.

Client feedback

Thank you so much for the consultation and advice you provided. You were the only lawyer willing to see me at such short notice and gave the necessary information to make the second attempt a success. I am so thankful for your expertise and the manner in which you handled my questions.

Client feedback

The clarity and quality of advice given was rated as excellent. The firm's service and response time was excellent and we would recommend them. We were kept informed throughout the visa process including all changes that occurred. I do not think we could have navigated the application process on our own. With guidance we were able to apply and I have recently received my approved visa.

Client feedback

We would not hesitate to recommend Morton Fraser MacRoberts whom we have used for immigration and tax matters. Very professional, prompt and pleasant service. One feels well supported throughout right through to a positive outcome.
