How exactly does someone with pre-settled status apply for settled status?

Those of you who already held pre-settled status at the time you applied for settled status, how exactly did you do it? I found the website a bit confusing. Here is what I tried: (1) Clicked on "Start now" on this page and it gave me two options: - Prove your identity - Sign in (2) Clicked on "Sign ...

Hi Dee, my mother hasn't returned yet (still no flights).

Have you decided to reapply?

Re: Another pre-settled status after the 5 years are up?

this does not come from an official government source Fair enough. Speaking of official sources, I just noticed that gov.uk has added a subsection that addresses the issue: If you’ve left the UK You may be able to get pre-settled status if you were living in the UK before 31 December but you were n...

Many thanks for your reply, kamoe ! You gave me a useful keyword: "re-apply".

Another pre-settled status after the 5 years are up?

My mother travelled to her home country shortly before the first lockdown and got stuck there because there are still no flights back to the UK. And even if there were flights, it would probably be not worth the risk at the moment (given her age). If her absence will be over 12 months, she won't be ...

Re: Will a legacy version of the EEA-route still be around in 2024?

A worrying feature is that it seems to me that you need to apply for settled status before the five years of pre-settled status are complete. For most people, the answer is that they will have completed five years on qualifying routes before the five years of pre-settled status are complete, and ca...

Allow me to quote The Guardian: Hundreds of thousands are being given second-class pre-settled status, which means they will face a new cliff-edge in five years .

Re: Settled Status - What does "ceased activity" mean?

raume, did you manage to find something that sheds light on your question?

I'd be interested as well.
"The rules now require the family member to have been resident for a continuous qualifying period before the EEA citizen ceased activity."
How long is this qualifying period?

From personal experience: I know a French citizen who managed to bring her non-EEA mother and her non-EEA step-father to Belgium.

Absent from the UK while her pre-settled application is being considered?

My non-EEA family member is in the UK on a family permit and has applied for pre-settled status. Due to personal circumstances, she might need to leave the UK for a few months. Note that she would definitely return to the UK before her family permit expires. So there will probably be no problem re-e...

After five years you will have gained full settled status.
Could you please elaborate on how exactly it would happen?

And why would they then close it for new application?

CR001, I guess I misunderstood what you meant. So this retroactive thing didn't allow anyone to apply for citizenship after just 5 years?

If you have pre settled status, then you don't have 5 years etc.
True, I definitely don't have 5 years yet. I was just curious.

Would this option be still open in the future? Or would it be not possible to apply for this (old) PR application in a couple of years? E.g. after Brexit and such.
