If you’re from the EU, Switzerland, Norway, Iceland or Liechtenstein, you and your family might be able to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme to continue living in the UK. You might also be able to apply if you’re the family member of an eligible person of Northern Ireland.
The deadline for most people to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme was 30 June 2021. Eligible citizens who missed the application deadline can still make a late application where there are reasonable grounds for doing so:
- Apply to the EU Settlement Scheme (settle and pre-settled status)
- EU Settlement Scheme: community support for vulnerable citizens
Scanning your documents
You cannot currently make an appointment to scan your ID document because of coronavirus (COVID-19). You can scan your document and upload your photo using the ‘EU Exit: ID Document Check’ app using an Android phone, or an iPhone 7 or above.
The postal route for submitting Identity evidence is currently suspended. We are unable to accept any documents by post at this time, but all documents already sent to us will be returned as quickly as possible. Applications can still be made online using the “EU Exit ID Document check” app.
Additional support is available to those EU citizens in the UK who do not have the appropriate access, skills or confidence to apply online through Assisted Digital, which can offer assistance over the phone. Communications materials have been translated into 26 languages and alternative formats, which can also be requested.
Settlement Resolution Centre
The Settlement Resolution Centre (SRC) will no longer be answering telephone calls. It will, however, continue to respond to email enquiries which can be made via the online contact form and provide a call back function when required.
