EU Settlement Scheme

The EU Settlement Scheme allows EU citizens to continue to live, work and study in the UK without any immigration time restrictions after the UK leaves the European Union.

We are offering identity verification for applicants who cannot apply using the Home Office App using an Android device, which doesn't have Near Field Communication (NFS). Please note, the app is currently not available on Apple devices. To find out more and attend a verification session, go to our EU Settlement Scheme page.
