EU Settlement Scheme update

This is the latest information on the EU Settlement Scheme for EU citizens living in the UK.

Three weeks until go live

The full opening of the EU Settlement Scheme will go ahead on 30 March 2019. Applications will be free.

Ahead of the full opening of the Scheme, the Home Office have been  testing the application process and making some final changes.

To apply to the EU Settlement Scheme, applicants will only need to prove their identity, demonstrate their UK residence, and declare any criminal convictions. Regardless of whether the UK leaves the EU with or without a deal, EU citizens will have until at least 31 December 2020 to apply.

Different ways to apply

EU citizens applying to the Scheme from 30 March 2019, will be able to send their passport or other identity documents by post if they do not wish to or cannot use the EU Exit ID Document Check App.

From 9 April 2019, EU citizens and certain family members will be able to apply to the Scheme from outside the UK, free of charge and based on their previous residence in the UK, without needing to travel here to make an online application.
