Dear fellow EU citizen,
Today the Home Office opened the third and final test phase of the settled status application app and system to all EU citizens in the UK. I was about to send you a long email about the launch when the most extraordinary thing happened.
Theresa May addressed MPs in the Commons and said she listened to party colleagues and organisations like the3million group and announced she scrapped the settled status application fee.

So the uncertainty remains as so many of us are worried about the application and qualifying for settled status, but I am relieved we will not have to pay to stay.
I want to thank you for your support since we started in July 2016, Together, we can win.
If you can afford it, do consider become a paying supporter to the3million, or make a one-off donation, so we we can continue the work, and focus in 2019 and beyond on supporting the most vulnerable EU citizens during the settled status application phase.
