Despite commitments by the UK government that all EU citizens living in the UK until Dec 2020 can stay in the UK after Brexit, female EU migrants are at greater risk of failing to access their settled status than male EU migrants.

This is the finding of analysis by the Transition Advice Fund, which looked at the existing Migration Observatory research, 'Unsettled Status: which EU citizens are at risk of failing to secure their rights after Brexit?'

The discrepancy between the genders is largely due to specific difficulties females are more likely to face accessing documentation to prove their right to remain.
