Summary title: Petition No 0448/2021 by Stefano Tabacchi (Italian) on the correct calculation of absences under the EU Settlement Scheme in the United Kingdom
Petition number: 0448/2021
Topics: Immigration, Brexit
Country: United Kingdom
Name: Dr. Stefano Tabacchi
The petitioner recalls that in order to obtain the transition from Pre-Settled Status to Settled Status in the UK, EU citizens should not interrupt their continuous residence in the UK by making absences of more than six months in any 12-month period. However, the petitioner claims that this is not approved by the EU, which calculates the absence period of six months for each calendar year. The petitioner calls on the EU to act in order to achieve this right calculation system with the Home Office in UK.
