EU settlement scheme

The deadline for applying for most people was 30 June 2021. You can still apply if that deadline did not apply to you, or you have ‘reasonable grounds’ for not applying by the deadline.

Due to coronavirus we are not able to make appointments for the EUSS ID verification walk-in service.

Remember you can still verify your documents yourself. All you’ll need is a compatible Android phone, iPhone or tablet. This can be your own phone or tablet, or someone else’s.

What is settled status?

If you’re a European Union (EU), European Economic Area (EEA) or Swiss citizen, you and your family will be able to apply to get either settled or pre-settled status to remain living in the UK after Brexit.

There will be no change to your current rights under EU law until the end of the planned implementation period on 31 December 2020. Settled status will mean you can continue living in the UK after 31 December 2020.

Who can apply?

Find out if you’re eligible.

What documentation do I need?

  • your current valid biometric EU passport or valid biometric residence card
  • a mobile phone that can receive text messages or a device that can receive email
  • proof of your address (driving licence, most recent council tax bill, bank statement or utility bill)

The ID documents listed above are the only ones we accept.

Identity verification

You’ll need a compatible Android phone, iPhone or tablet (mobile phone or other device must have 'near field communication' (NFC)) if you want to scan your identity document yourself. This can be your own phone or tablet, or someone else’s. You'll then be able to make an application for pre-settled or settled status.

We won't need to keep your ID document and in most cases you should not be asked to send your passport anywhere else during your application for pre-settled or settled status.

Apply now

You have until 30 June 2021 to apply for either settled or pre-settled status.
