EU Settlement Scheme: 600'000 applications already

EU SETTLEMENT SCHEME

The UK government has recently sent an update on their EU settlement scheme, following the completion of the pilot phase, which saw 200'000 applications processed.

The Settlement Scheme is now fully in force, with 600'00 persons having already applied.

Most applications are done via mobile phones, with most applicants able to prove their identity remotely, under 10 minutes. 81% of survey respondents said it was very easy or fairly easy to use to complete the application form.

The EU settlement scheme is open to EU, EEA and Swiss citizens living in the UK, who want to be granted indefinite right to remain in the UK. It is free of charge to apply, and it is designed to grant the right to remain with a minimum of documents to be provided.
