European Union 1.8 million seek United Kingdom settled status post-Brexit

Two million applications to the EU Settlement Scheme

Two million applications to the EU Settlement Scheme

Applicants must prove their identity, show that they live in the United Kingdom and declare any criminal convictions, and have until December 2020 to apply.

Only two of the 1.5 million applicants to the Government's European Union settlement scheme have so far been rejected as unsuitable, according to the Home Office.

Government statistics show that more than 1.8 million applications have been received, and 1.5 million of these have been granted status up to the end of September 2019.

Nearly 350,000 are Polish, followed by Romanians (280,600), Italians (200,700), Portuguese (162,500), Spanish (115,700), Bulgarians (96,100), Lithuanians (92,100) and French (70,700).

Patel said: "EU citizens have made a huge contribution to this country and will play a key role in cementing Britain's status as an outward-looking, global leader after Brexit".

That is why I am thrilled that we have had 2 million applications to the EU Settlement Scheme so that EU citizens can secure their immigration status under United Kingdom law.

The government will now host a number of events across the country to raise awareness of settled status requirements on a local level.

In September alone, over 500,000 applications were registered under the EU Settlement Scheme, of which 107,000 came from Poles and 93,000 from Romanians.

He also said it was unclear what the consequences would be for people who do not apply by the deadline.

There is plenty of support and information on offer to help people apply and get the status they need. This includes more than 300 assisted digital locations across the United Kingdom where people can be supported through their application and more than 80 locations where applicants can have their passport scanned and verified.
