EU nationals will need to pay to stay in Jersey after Brexit.
They will need to register under the ‘Settled Status’ scheme, which the Home Affairs Minister has revealed is due to be introduced in January.
It will cost £25 for adults and £12.50 for children.
Constable Len Norman, speaking in a Scrutiny hearing, says the fee will cover the cost of a registration programme – following a question by Deputy Rob Ward on how residents will be affected financially.
“It gives them absolute certainty and we’ve seen what’s gone on in the UK with the Windrush generation and I don’t want to see anything like that ever happening in Jersey.
“I think it’s a pretty small price to pay for absolute certainty of a settled status.”
