3. What’s wrong with the 28-day written notice? The Government has outlined that if an EEA+ citizen without status is encountered by Immigration Enforcement they will be issued a written notice to apply to the EUSS within 28 days during which no enforcement action will be taken. It is far more likely that landlords, employers and other public services will be tasked with understanding and following this new guidance, increasing the likelihood of unlawful decision making and discrimination. Unless the “notice” is accessible, available in EU languages and signposts to free support and legal advice, EEA+ citizens will encounter the same barriers and risk missing this second deadline. Yet the Home Office has only committed to continuing funding for charities supporting vulnerable EEA+ citizens till September 2021. The Government has failed to provide clarity on what happens to people who are unable to apply within 28 days. By default, Immigration Enforcement measures – including detention and removal – should kick in.
